Things You Learn When You Go Through A Traumatic Experience

It gets better.

Posted on

A few months back I went through a traumatic incident which led me to not get enough sleep.I kept getting depressed and didn't know how to talk to anyone about it.

The frequent panic attacks didn't help. I tried to be happy but my mind wasn't letting me.

But I did get through it, it made me stronger and smarter.

Here are a few things i learnt from my experience:

1. It makes you a kind person / Via

This might not always be true but a traumatic experience does make you a better person if you chose to be. In this cruel world we need to chose to be nice , to bring some kindness and light in the lives of those around us.

2. You become realistic / Via

You realize that the world is filled with hate and torment. It is filled with greedy hands and cynics who have lost hope but on the other hand, there are people who still care , who still give back and wanting to be one of them no matter what you go through makes you a blessing to humanity

3. It makes you realize your purpose / Via

Your experience shapes you into a person you were always meant to be. It makes you realize what you were born to do or something close enough. We weren't sent here to earn loads of cash and die but to also help those who are less fortunate and to make an actual difference no matter how small.

5. And lastly, It makes you makes you appreciate life / Via

If anything , a bad experience makes you realize all the good things you’ve got, and to never let go of them. It makes you see the stars in a dark sky and appreciate its beauty. It makes you realize that you don’t have it that bad.

Just remember that no matter what is going on in your life, you will get through!
