You approach every situation in your life based on instincts and what has happened to you before. If you have lived through something traumatic and difficult, this will affect moments going forward, whether you want it to or not. Approximately 70% of adults in the U.S. will experience a traumatic event in their lifetime, with 20% going on to develop post-traumatic stress disorder. But that doesn’t mean that the darkness of that moment needs to define you. You are still here; you are still persevering, and that is amazing. While you might not have been able to control the situation, you do control the aftermath. (Mindful)
While we might think of trauma being caused by large scale dramatic events, there are actually two different kinds. “Big T trauma” refers to a life-threatening scenario or long-term abuse. “Little t trauma” refers to more subtle events that cause pain, distress, fear or anxiety. They can make people change the way they see the world or themselves. (Psychology Today)
Perseverance is possible for anyone, regardless of their past. There are a few qualities that could help you on the road to recovery: Asking for help and talking about the experience; supporting oneself through the aftermath; accepting and trusting uncertainty; and finding meaning and growth in the experience. (Forbes)
