What we typically call “trauma reaction” is fundamentally a one-time, life-saving reaction that repeats into other contexts that do not require it.
It is often categorized as “fight, flight, freeze, submit,” but we don’t walk enough about how each reaction may be chosen.
It could be a contextually-restricted choice – e.g. a person may have tried fight, then flight, then freeze, and when all failed ended up with the submit reaction. It could also be because it was because that was our weakness. But it could also be because that was our strength. Someone with confidence and connection in their ability to run, they would flee. Someone with the biggest faith in eventual rescue may scream louder and louder even if it may not yet show impact.
