The Surprising Benefit Of Going Through Hard Times

Interesting article. I’m inclined to believe there’s a lot of truth in this. Trauma is coruscating, but it can also be cleansing. It’s rare that hard times don’t contain something that is profound. Harsh reality makes us confront simple truths. Life is stripped back to its elemental components, the irrelevant falls away. There are all sorts of variations, but basically it’s the struggle to survive.

Interesting article. I’m inclined to believe there’s a lot of truth in this. Trauma is coruscating, but it can also be cleansing. It’s rare that hard times don’t contain something that is profound. Harsh reality makes us confront simple truths. Life is stripped back to its elemental components, the irrelevant falls away. There are all sorts of variations, but basically it’s the struggle to survive.

While there is the practical aspect of that struggle – overcoming whatever brand of adversity facing you – it can be the catalyst for inner growth, as this article posits. You have to be the right person I suspect, and positioned just right to benefit from it, but I’m sure it’s valid. If trauma makes you reflect on your own life and values then it’s a positive. The real positive comes from the insights available to you, the re-appraisal f what’s important, and the strength you find in that.

I look forward to this. I’ve been through the mill, and still dealing with hardship. I feel as if I’m in the middle of this, but in a position to really benefit when this particularly journey is at an end. I’m still mid-trauma. When it concludes and I’m in the peace and security of post trauma then I’ll be in a position to understand the beginning and the end of it, and all it means to me.
