What You’ll Learn About Mental Health and Mental Strength Trauma leaves both biological and psychological imprints on us. That’s why it’s important to learn how to heal both your mind and your body. Learning about a family history of trauma may help you make sense of some of the things you experience. For example, you might better understand why your mother was so overprotective and it might give you insight into why you have anxiety now. Or, it might help you understand why your father had such a bad temper and you may recognize how this led to you becoming a people pleaser. Healing from emotional wounds is key to growing mentally stronger. And sometimes, it’s not obvious at first where those wounds came from or why you have them. Understanding intergenerational trauma might help you feel better and grow stronger.
