Repeated cycles of trauma


Individual trauma results from an event, series of events, or set of circumstances that is experienced by an individual as physically or emotionally harmful or threatening and that can have lasting adverse effects on the individual’s functioning and physical, social, emotional well-being.

In general, trauma can be defined as a psychological, emotional response to an event or an experience that is deeply distressing or disturbing.


subject to lasting shock as a result of an emotionally disturbing experience or physical injury.

Traumatic event:

an incident that causes physical, emotional, spiritual, or psychological harm. The person experiencing the distressing event may feel threatened, anxious, or frightened as a result. In some cases, they may not know how to respond, or may be in denial about the effect such an event has had

How many more stories are we going to hear or physically see on horrible things happening to our own people?

A lot of y’all don’t really understand the objective behind all this.

There’s things in history that has placed trauma in the lives of generations down the line. We suffering and don’t know it. Anybody peeping this pattern?

It’s become a normal thing to watch one of our own get mistreated or taken out. It’s become an insane routine to do nothing after witnessing unfair treatment. Why are we so quiet about shit?

They’ll feed you these narratives about ourselves so that we can continue focusing on the negatives instead of making our own solutions. If nobody sees the issue, it’ll just be repeated cycles of the same thing.

We are forced to see and know some of the most foul shit at a very young age. Sure, all races go through bs but let’s focus on the black female and male child. What do they see daily? What do they hear? What do they experience? What scars are left on their mentals from incidents that happened so long ago?

We haven’t forgotten. They remind us everyday. That pain… that pain seeps through like blood on a white thin sheet. It’s visible. We are traumatized as a people.

Why is our pain so humorous to the rest of the world?Why do we allow ppl to mock us or reenact painful memories of the past? Why do we sit and say nothing when we are the clown act on screen?! Why are we okay with this.

Sometimes households can create traumatic experiences. How are we communicating and loving each other? And around the kids? What steps are we taking to ensure that our children look up to us as the perfect example for the black family and nation?

What about our actions? Have you looked at how the black male and female child grows up? Are you paying attention to what they’re learning and taking in? So many of our babies are depressed and sometimes it be off watching someone like him or herself die every damn day on the tv. You have little boys who are already making decisions to step down from the man role because they fear for their lives. That’s an issue. It’s traumatic! We have little girls running away from issues and calling themselves “bad bitches” just to cover up what’s really going on mentally. We raising kids that don’t know how to coexist with their counterpart and nobody talking about this. The very thing they want to rip apart ..and we helping them. Wassup with these behaviors? Do we care about the kids? The future..
