That's just how the brain works. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The brain stores information for future use. It's a survival mechanism that's designed to keep us safe from any threat, or perceived threat.
Example: You touch a hot stove for the first time- your brain stores that information for the future. "Don't touch hot things. It hurts."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But the problem is that the brain's mechanism for storing information is often arbitrary. That's why some people seem to be able to move on quickly from traumatic events and others have a harder time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The other reason why moving on from trauma can be difficult is because not all the information is stored in the brain. It can also be stored in the diaphragm, the connective tissue, the bones, the organs.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But the first step to healing really is getting the brain updated to what's happening now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To stop the brain from making choices based on old and outdated information.
