In this life, most of us will experience some form of trauma. However when this happens can affect us more then what happens. The example was of Kawhi and his father who was murdered when Kawhi was only 16. If someone experiences trauma as a child or young person, the affects can last throughout adulthood. One that experiences trauma at a young age may have difficulty showing emotions to various situations in general. Usually they don’t give any sign of happy or sad but a dazed and confused reaction. More research needs to be done on overcoming childhood trauma.
