As humans however we are driven towards survival so time and time again we see the resilience pull through and people do get through traumatic times.
You can often have trauma symptoms and when you recover from them find yourself in a more positive mindset where post traumatic growth can occur.
We can get through tough times
It might be that you are grateful that you survived your trauma.
Maybe after experiencing a bereavement you recognise how short life is and have a new appreciation for yours making sure that you do what you want to within it.
You may look back on what you have been through and recognise just how far you have come. You can develop a deeper connection with your abilities and strengths.
My clients often get to this point after we gave worked through and processed the overwhelming experiences and the trauma they have been through.
Perspective is changeable and there is nothing like surviving a difficult trauma to help us put things into perspective and perhaps look at life through a different lens.
