There's No Such Thing As Trauma
”There's no such thing as Trauma."
Austrian psychologist Alfred Adler said so.
We do not suffer from the shock of our experiences, so-called trauma - but we make out of them just what suits our purposes.
For example, suppose there is a man who says, " I don't want to start a business, because I failed once in the past."
Meanings are not determined by situations, but we determine ourselves by the meanings we give to situations.
This man doesn't want to start a new business, so he uses the situation that he failed once in the past.
He can think this way, "I want to start a new business, because I failed once in the past."
The situation that he failed once in the past is same, but the meanings are opposite.
"You in the present" have nothing to do with "you in the past,"
if you just let go your past.
