Default Post-Traumatic Growth

Hi fellow survivors,

Has anyone found a way to channel their negative traumas into something positive? Post-Traumatic growth is a means of doing so. Anyone relate? What has worked for you? What could to recommend for fellow survivors?

Thanks,
HD7970ghz

Default Re: Post-Traumatic Growth

I'm not sure how positive this is, but now that I've acknowledged my trauma I see it as a tool to fix my other problems. Getting there meant really seeing what happened as trauma though...i went years denying it (and hence why I have other problems - the trauma reaction channeled it's way into something else)
