Sometimes you wonder what make your situation different. Other times, you try to convince yourself that it wasn’t that bad and you’re overreacting. Or, maybe you often feel like it was your fault. Somehow, you feel like you did something to deserve it. You don’t have to live with the aftermath of trauma.

These are usually the events that pop in our head when we think about trauma. Little ‘t’ trauma events are events that aren’t life-threatening, but still impactful.
