Honesty with yourself about what transpired is essential in commencing the healing process. There are various ways to acknowledge your trauma, such as discussing it with a therapist, journaling about your experiences, or channeling your emotions into art or music. Patience with yourself is vital, as recognising your trauma and initiating the healing process might take time.
2. Seek professional assistance.
