How to manage stress, abuse and trauma in our lives

How to manage stress and the more difficult human emotions in our lives has become a real challenge. This is because our world is changing at such a fast pace. Arguably, this can become more difficult if we are suffering from symptoms of trauma or abuse. For this reason, if we do not learn how to manage these stresses, we may become emotionally overwhelmed. As a result, this can sometimes leave us with a feeling of shame or guilt?
Some stress management requires either coaching or psychotherapy. More serious issues need psychotherapy. However, if stress is not managed, it may lead to addiction. Learning how to manage stress, makes for an easier life. Also, our relationships tend to flourish and grow.
