The most beautiful people… have known defeat, known suffering, known loss, and found their way out of the depths.
-Elizabeth Kubler Ross
Trauma often causes people to question their established beliefs, as well as ideas about who they are, forcing survivors to completely reconstruct their worldview. Adversity forces us to rebuild the parts of ourselves that have been challenged. By engaging in this creative act of rebuilding, we are given an invaluable opportunity to recreate ourselves. The reconstruction, though extremely difficult, can precipitate an immense amount of personal growth.
