PTSD Healing Thought of the Week: Challenges are what make life interesting

PTSD recovery is one of the most challenging things you’ll ever do. In fact, when you look back on your life, it may be one of the things you’re most proud of.Healing, Challenges, PTSD

Still, in the moment of getting the job done you can’t always see the significance of your actions. The truth is, you don’t need to see the significance right now. As you move forward the significance – and what you learn about yourself in the process – will be revealed to you.

Joshua Marine said,

Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.

Focus on overcoming PTSD and know that the future meaning – of who you are, what you will do, and how you can create your life – will reveal itself as you move forward.

If you don’t know the meaning that will come from recovery, that’s no reason not to know the meaning of the moment you’re in. Check out this post for a simple exercise that will allow you to connect more deeply to the present moment!

You have enormous healing potential. The goal is learning to access it.

Dig deep. You can do this. I believe in you!
