    How intense is this trauma?

    And how do we measure the intensity of a personal, and therefore subjective, experience? I will say that I fear becoming too comfortable, down that road lies stagnation and oblivion.

There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Trauma promotes change good or bad I'd say. I think one's attitude, the severity of the trauma, pre trauma influences, and the external factors after that were not involved in the trauma have a huge influence on which way the change goes. Horrible bad things can still be turned to acceptance and positive outcomes with the right person and support for that person. Not so terrible tiny traumas can turn an apathetic person sour very quickly even with support.

    In my experience: Trauma ----> Anger/Bitterness/Shame ----> Humility ----> Healing ----> Growth. Trauma can lead to growth, truly rich growth, but one can also pretty easily get stuck in the Anger stage onf Trauma.

    I had a very traumatic experience at 24. Ever since, I've been much more balanced. I'd say that 2-3 month experience has shaped my life for the better. Even though it was pretty traumatic physically and mentally, I can't say that I'd ever wish it did not happen. Would I want to go through it again? No.

    So, how could one build resilience for themselves so that they can handle unknown future traumas and crises with more growth and less lasting damage?
