5.0 Have you ever wondered where your personal phobias came from? We we born with certain fears? What about voices in your head, we all have them. Sometimes these voices encourage us, and at other times they discourage and frustrate us. The best of us can easily think evil-dark thoughts, although most people never act on these thoughts, they’re there nonetheless; no one is exempt nor above this reproach. I’ve often said, neurotics build castles in the sky, and psychotics move in. The fine line between thinking or feeling something and actually acting on it can be both fascinating and scary. Often times what hinders us or causes pause and pain, are things that happen in the past, whether we participated in or witnessed those things or not. These feelings can be caused by vivid memories or stories told to us about our family member’s experiences from the past. The reality is there are things that have happened within our families before we were born that haunt us today. The once popular, not very friendly term trauma-echo comes to mind. According to many clinicians, trauma-echo is when people with histories of significant trauma find themselves repeating distressful behaviors despite a desire to recover. Many find themselves, for example, in abusive relationships later in life even though they were severely and adversely affected by abuse in the past. Living within these later relationships can cause a ‘trauma echo’ in which the feelings and behaviors associated with the original trauma ‘echo’ or recur throughout other relationships long after the original trauma has passed (Addiction.com, 2015). Thoughts and feelings from traumatic events can be passed down subconsciously through the generations. This creates a cycle that is not easily broken. This piece isn’t anti-dog, anti-water, or anti-church by no stretch of the imagination. What it is unequivocally without trepidation or hesitation is pro-understanding, pro-unity and must be discussed TNT (today-not-tomorrow).
