I know we hear a lot about learning to be resilient as trauma survivors but that is not the end all to be all.
Resilience means the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
By definition it explains it is temporary.
I am not saying if your have become resilient you can’t feel better about your truama, however I am saying all those techniques you learned to cope with only trauma can only get your so far. Resilience will hinder you from creating a Post-Traumatic Growth Mindset. A PTG mindset is using the trauma your survived to live the life of your dreams. What I teach is not based on techniques to COPE but process and allow the trauma to be there, show up unexpectedly AND still live the life of your dreams.
I don’t tell you to move past it or put it on the back burner or think about something positive. Those things are helpt but just that. They don’t bring you to full growth.
You know you are past the point of resilience when you have achieved the what your dreamed and your dreams are getting bigger.
