Traumas come big and small, and no matter how significant a trauma seems to the outside world, it can have an immense impact on a relationship. Certain life events change a person’s perception, which can also cause changes in his or her relationships. Fortunately, that does not need to mean the end of the relationship and many couples come out on the other side of traumatic events stronger and more committed than ever before.
Big traumas are impactful life events that often lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These events tend to be life-altering and bring things to a screeching halt, at least for a short time.
Smaller traumas tend to build. Some are barely noticeable initially, but over time you feel the effects. Occasionally these are bigger events that involve abuse or neglect.
Relational trauma has a direct effect on a relationship. Often, our perceptions are clouded by past events and our minds and bodies perform a certain way because of traumas, big and small.
