Trauma survivors often exhibit a loss of self-confidence. Makes sense, doesn’t it? Often we hold ourselves responsible for what happened, or that we didn’t prevent what happened, or that we didn’t speak out about it, or that we didn’t handle it in a way that we feel was most appropriate. Whew, the list goes on and on!
Part of recovery means building back that sense of self-confidence, relearning to trust yourself, your ability to take care of yourself, and manage your world and protect your safety. There are specific actions you can take to rebuild your self-confidence. It’s a process that happens slowly. Fortunately, research shows that with time and effort you can improve the level of your self esteem at any stage of your life. So, what exactly can you do to increase it?
