Stigmabegone Posted April 16, 2012 Report Share Posted April 16, 2012 I would like to see more discussion so I am putting forth a question to all of you, in hopes you will reply and we can get a discussion flowing.Childhood trauma - does it have any effect on depression? Can it be a cause of depression?Myself, I grew up in a trauma-filled atmosphere and I have depression. I don't think the trauma by itself caused my depression, but I believe it played a part in shaping the person I am. I believe a lot of my negative thinking habits, my coping strategies, my people-pleaser attitude, and many other qualities developed as a result of my childhood. I do not blame anyone for this though. It is simply the way my life unfolded. A lot of the time I think it is unfair and I ask God why he allowed me to endure the childhood I had, but there is no solution to the unfairness. So what is your opinion?
