4. You become human again.
You learn a lot about yourself and you come face to face with your shadow self. This can make you feel insecure and can give you a negative feeling, but accepting these vulnerabilities makes you much stronger. You set new priorities and standards when it comes to happiness. You have become strong by having been weak. You are becoming human again!
5. You seek to be open minded.
Your new bucket list includes finding the peace that monks can achieve. By being open minded, you are able to meditate; there, you gain knowledge and find the balance and fuel to continue your journey, with purpose.
You have experienced so much fear in through this nightmare that nothing can make you more afraid. Unless, of course, if you allow your own thoughts to …
You’ve conquered an enormous transformation. You know who you are, what your goals and dreams are (life without a toothache). The relationships that you’ve kept throughout the PTSD are tight and safe. You know what it is like to lose yourself; and how to find yourself, to rebuild yourself. Now it’s time to win! You seen the bottom and now you are ready for the top!
7. Self love
It is awful to go through a ptsd breakdown; I know, I’ve been there. It’s like a living death. However, with some luck and dutiful work, you can survive (yes, really!).
Every day can be a fight but you also come away with knowledge and life skills from the lessons you went through. We learn to love ourselves honestly and we learn to take care of our mental and emotional health. Survival is balance and trust with the people and world around you (those you allow). Life can be good again; I know.
