We can metaphorically think about the nervous system as a container holding unresolved trauma.

We all have a container of trauma.

We all have a container of trauma.

For some there are not a lot of experiences filling the container. The world feels like a safe and comfortable place.

However, for others, there are many experiences in the container. There is only a little room left in it. As a result, their nervous system will be in flight/flight or freeze response more easily.
