Post Traumatic Growth

  1. You can find examples all through life of the people who use the bad to change and create better and the ones who sink into it defeated.

    We do all have a choice. There is a lot of pressure to do the wrong thing and it takes a lot of effort and mental strength to create a positive path for yourself especially when you have a background of abuse.

  3. I wonder if it just has to do with someone’s personality. I had some serious trauma and dealt with it in a way I thought I had to without thinking it was a choice. I just did it. I don’t know, if at those moments, we feel like there’s a ‘choice’… feels more like ‘have to do’s’. Whatever we instinctively gravitate to. But I do agree that at some point, it does become a choice to continue that path or change it up for the better. I was lucky to be able to continue to make changes. I hope others can see that they don’t have to stick to one plan but that choice is still an option. Thanks for sharing!

      I think a lot has to do with growth vs fixed mindset. These are somewhat innate traits, but a growth mindset can definitely be taught. Glad you were able to make changes for the better! 🙂
