It will teach you that life is unfair and not everyone lives a happy life. Maybe you will take time to heal, but that's okay! Many people go through traumatic events, many more are going to in the future- no body knows what will happen and nobody should face it alone! It is why people are supposed to help each other, because there is no one who is entitled to live a life of burden and distress. We need to spread the word and work through our problems with new insight. Mental illness, trauma, and life situations are nothing to be ashamed of.

Facing trauma can be very difficult, but if you are able to face it head on you can move on to healing. Facing trauma and acknowledging emotions tied to it can give you power to deal with the hard emotions. If you can work on dealing with the emotions, the more you try the easier it will be to move into a manageable emotional state. Becoming more in control of your emotions can make it easier to work on other aspects of your life such as work, school and relationships.

Trauma is always difficult to deal with; it never really goes away and it can stick with you in your mind for a long time... However, trauma being so prominent in our minds could make us stronger and more powerful. Now, confronting trauma head-on doesn't work for everyone, as it can make you feel worse, or it can seriously hurt. However, it does work for some people. With time, it's possible that you'll find the right way of coping with it. How does facing it make you stronger? It could show potentially that you've had to go through something traumatic, yet you've come out the other side. It's not easy to deal with; taking your time and accepting it could be good stepping stones to becoming stronger.

Because it shows you are able to get through a fall in your life. You are showing you are strong by getting through it and once you make it through you will have techniques to use when you have another down or fall in life.

Every challenge we face makes us stronger. Just think of your trauma as a challenge for you to overcome, a really hard challenge you must complete to go on. By facing this trauma you will be able to face harder challenges, and the weight of your trauma will be lifted.

Facing your problems helps you cope, if the problem is solved it usually helps, knowing that it is out of your way!

Because the faster we run from our fears, the harder they chase us. Running away gives more power to your traumatic memories. Plus it's exhausting. Facing the trauma, facing the pain will hurt, but it will give you power and control over the fast, so that it doesn't dominate you. You may never be "over" it, but you can learn to live with the past. Facing the past will give those bad memories a smaller and smaller place in your heart and mind.
