What Happened To You

Apr 23, 2023    Dr. Delman Coates

Trauma is the most significant factor that shapes and informs why we do what we do, and yet it is something that many of us fail to consider because when we’ve experienced something bad, something painful, or something that hurts us, the mind tries to protect us by forgetting about it. But even when the mind suppresses it, the body records it. It’s stamped in our nervous system and even as we move on from the moment, the sights, sounds, smells, and encounters can trigger the same responses, the same fears, the same thoughts, and the same anxieties that are rooted in our past. Have you ever taken the time to stop and ask, “What happened to me? Why am I the way I am?” Perhaps the problems you are dealing with are a result of never dealing with what happened in your past. That’s exactly what we’re going to dive into in this message.
