Anxiety throws you into the future, and it is never a future you actually want, yet you spend so much time worrying, catastrophizing, and mentally preparing for atrocities that are not likely to occur. The same goes for depression, shame and guilt, you are pulled back in time by old negative beliefs that weren’t yours to begin with. Hyper vigilance, flashbacks, nightmares, dissociation, these too may keep you in the past. Kurt Vonnegut’s famous science fiction novel, “Slaughter House-five,” describes a soldier in the war zone becoming “unstuck in time.” This is what trauma feels like for many people.
