  • Loneliness
  • Anger
  • Sadness

The above-mentioned are some of the basis of unprocessed trauma. 

When you recognize it, you can dig into the past and ask yourself the question: What causes this emotion? At that moment, you either know already; or maybe you don’t. Whatever might be the case, you need to find and fight it in order to conquer it and finally GROW.
