If arguments are a sensitive topic for you, please read this with caution or not at all. I really don't wish to trigger anyone.
My trauma, and my fear, is fighting. I am deathly afraid of arguments, yelling, and slamming doors. Most of the time I can cope with it (because I'm too tired to care), but sometimes it really gets to me and I want to break down and cry. Or, if I don't have an anxiety attack, then it will just put me in a really bad mood and ruin my day.
What can I do to "get over" my fear? How have you overcome yours? I saw a lot of domestic violence growing up, so I did develop a strong fear of loud arguments/noises. I am usually fine if I only hear one or two loud noises in a day, but anything after that scares me a lot.
Like today, someone in my class heard something really mean about his sister and got angry. He hit something hard and stormed out of class. I hardly flinched then, but later on in the day my mother and sister get into an argument, so direct yelling was involved. It made me angry, and now I want to run and hide from the world.

I'm still dealing with my trauma and my fears.. it's been 10 months since it happened. It's basically something you deal with every day. Everyone copes differently and everyone heals differently. Maybe you should talk to a therapist about this or something! Dont ever try to cover up the pain.0
