Getting through it, the drama/trauma is what counts. Carrying it around with you will not help.
Resilience is easy, really. If you get through the trauma of divorce, death, and financial disasters, you are resilient. You may still feel the pain of your trauma, yet your behavior about these things is what gets you through the days and nights of emotional distress.
An important ingredient in your comeback resilience is your relationships, both at home and at work. If you have good, solid, loving relationships with people, you may be more resilient than someone who is sitting alone in a studio apartment with no friends or family.
Although there is the rare breed of person who goes within themselves to seek the truth about how they can overcome the results of their traumas.
If your esteem is high, you have a lesser issue with drama hanging on like Linus in the Snoopy stories, dragging his blanket behind him
People will see you with your proverbial blanket, so leave it at home and be hopeful and positive. There really are no other choices except to rely on your heart and soul, your mindfulness and your life experiences.
It’s all in how you view the trauma. A firing at work can open your eyes to other opportunities; a relationship break-up can also open your eyes to the type of individual you need to be spending your time with. A death in the family may allow you to grieve for them and yourself, and by releasing held in emotions, help you clarify your purpose in life.
Maintain your perspective on all these events. It may be time for you to delve into your own inner world to discover where you need some emotional help. You might find yourself feeling more vulnerable than you have never felt before. This dropping of your guard may open you up to better relationships, a sense of self-worth you have not experienced before and a better appreciation for life.
