how to know if you’re stuck in a trauma bond... and how to get out: a thread 🧵
trigger warnings for discussions of physical, sexual, and psychological abuse, gaslighting, toxic parents, childhood trauma, and codependency.

there will also be help resources at the end, including a guide on how to escape domestic abuse.

alright, let’s get started.
so... what actually *is* trauma bonding? you’ve probably seen this term thrown around online a bunch. unfortunately, there’s a lot of misinformation about it, so i’m gonna clear up the definition first so we’re all on the same page here. see the tweet below for a clarification.

if you’ve experienced childhood trauma, you probably experience something i call “existential nostalgia.” looking at old photos, seeing toys and tv shows you grew up with, and reflecting on memories gives you an ache of nostalgia, but it’s twinged with a feeling of dread and pain
something that really evokes this feeling from me is kidcore aesthetics and trauma vent art. it validates an intense feeling of grief. i look at these things and feel like a kid again, but in a really dark way. childhood becomes this lost thing that i can’t quite reach.
it’s a bizarre feeling because you know you don’t actually miss being a kid, but the idea of youth, of comforting modes of escapism like your toys and swingsets and animated movies, reminds your inner child that this was your life at one point. the world was so new, but it hurt.
