Quote

"Until death, it is all life. But we have two lives, and the second begins when we realize we only have one."

Ideas

1

Moving on from trauma is a myth, you only get to move forward.
Often when we think about recovery, we think of the return to who we were before something.

But we need to realize, with every new experience, good or bad, the person that we once were, no longer exists.

What we need to learn to do is redefine who we are, with this new added experience.

Often when we're in the midst of a really tough time, we can't see a way out.
But just because we can't see a way out, doesn't mean there isn't one.

When we can't see light at the end of the tunnel, one of the things we can do is write out all of the hard things we've survived, to remind ourselves of our proven track record of resilience.

If you want to learn something good, reflect on what you don't want others to know about you.

If you want to learn something great, reflect on what you don't want yourself to learn about you.
