It is scary how much our past can disrupt our present . Sometimes the things that we try to avoid just because of the bad memories they bring, replay in our minds and haunt us for a long time. We can not continue to live like that though, we need to be able to live a fulfilling life and that would be difficult with our past experience haunting us at every turn.

We need to be able to deal with the traumas that marred us and get past it, but it is not as easy as just wishing it away.

There are ways in which we can help our loved ones with PTSD and they include the following:

1) Provide social support for them: A lot of people with PTSD,believe that people do not understand what they are going through and so they tend to keep to themselves , so we can try to make sure they know that we will always be there for them.

2) Give them the time and space they need. We don't need to pressure them into talking. We should wait until they are willing/able to talk about how they feel.

3) Educate ourselves about PTSD

4) We should be good at managing our own problems in other not to add to their stress.

 Healing takes time but genuine love, understanding and affection can make it a beautiful experience.
