Trauma is defined as a mental, behavioural and emotional response to an event or an experience that is deeply disturbing or distressing. Contrary to my previous belief, it’s your SUBJECTIVE emotional experience of an event that determines whether it was traumatic. In other words, just because something might not be recognized objectively as devastating does not mean it wasn’t traumatic for you.
