The signs of unhealed trauma could include: always choosing toxic relationships or difficult people, always finding problems in relationships, difficulties with trusting others, finding emotional intimacy or physical intimacy, and being self-sabotaging. Unhealed trauma can start as early as childhood trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, or other mental health-related issues. When you have post-traumatic stress or signs of unhealed trauma, you could end up sabotaging yourself and your relationships. By recognizing these signs within yourself or someone else, you could potentially save a relationship worth saving.
