When we hear the word "trauma," we often think of the big things: an assault, as accident, or the death of a loved one. We often don't think of the "smaller" traumas that we all have in our pasts.

Trauma, whether big or "little," changes how we see ourselves, and these traumatic experiences change how we see the world. Because of these changes, we are forced to adapt.
