Trauma Bonding

Trauma bonding refers to a psychological attachment that forms between two people as a result of ongoing abuse, manipulation, or other traumatic experiences.

 

This bond is often characterized by intense feelings of loyalty, dependence, and even love, despite the negative behaviors of the abuser.

Perhaps you are wondering if you have a trauma bond? 

 

You may experience a range of intense and conflicting emotions that may include feelings of attachment, dependency, fear, guilt, shame, confusion, or a sense of being trapped and/or powerless.

 

You  may also feel a strong desire to please and seek approval from the person who is abusing you and causing the trauma, despite knowing that the relationship is unhealthy and potentially harmful. You may have left several times yet keep going back, even though you know your situation is unlikely to change.

 

Additionally, you may struggle with symptoms of anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem, as well as difficulty trusting others and forming healthy, drama-free relationships.

Healing from trauma bonding can be a challenging process, but it is possible with the right support and resources from a trained, trauma-informed, Narcissistic Abuse Specialist™.
