Silence…….

Share

Silence about trauma also leads to death—the death of the soul. Silence reinforces the godforsaken isolation of trauma. Being able to say aloud to another human being, “I was raped” or “I was battered by my husband/wife” or “My parents called it discipline, but it was abuse” or “I’m not making it since I got back from the war,” is a sign that healing can begin”.— Bessel Van Der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma
