We all experience trauma and tragedy at some time in our lives, which has the potential for long-term stress and emotional wounds. Yet some people seem to progress in life, after trauma, happy, content even, and not in a way that suggests they are burying their feelings or minimising their pain.
Experiencing positive transformation after trauma is known as post-traumatic growth.
People who experience post-traumatic growth may experience a new appreciation for life, new-found personal strength, see an improvement in their relationships, see new possibilities in life, and undergo spiritual changes.
In this episode of Hey Soul Sista, special guests, Kaz Amos and Kate Histon, and host, Mel Histon, look at why and how some people experience such profound positive changes after enduring something terrible and yet others may struggle.
