You may have found that the coping strategies you’ve used to survive trauma in the past are impeding your ability to heal in the present. Therapist and author Aundi Kolber calls this “white knuckling it” and discusses what it means to instead “try softer” as you pay compassionate attention to your needs. She describes what happens in your brain and body when we experience something that triggers a trauma response, and how you can respond with curiosity and care to repair the damage trauma has done.
