When life puts you in a tight spot, don’t ask, ‘Why me?’ Instead, stand tall and say, ‘Try me!’
We’ve all heard the term ‘Post Traumatic Stress’ but what about ‘Post Traumatic Growth’?
What if instead of letting life’s challenges and difficult times make us anxious and stressed, we focused on how the experience would strengthen us?
This simple change in perspective can be extremely empowering as it allows us to look at adversity as an opportunity to build strength and character. It reminds us that we are who we are because of the challenges we have overcome.
But how do we nurture this resilient mindset in our kids, and in ourselves?
This episode explores the term ‘Post Traumatic Growth’ and explains how it can help us, and our kids, become more resilient.
Post Traumatic Growth is explored further in the first chapter of my book 9 Ways to a Resilient Child.
