From stress to growth - Deepstash

From stress to growth

Some who experience a traumatic event and have difficulty coping may develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Encouraging people to be optimistic and grateful when going through tough times doesn't encourage growth beyond tragedy.

In contrast, others find trauma gives them new meaning in life. Instead of letting the negative feelings overwhelm us, we can make a daily effort to feel comfortable with negative emotions while noticing that there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
