How the Worst Moments in Our Lives Make Us Who We Are
No matter how difficult things get, there is always something positive to gain from our hardest times. But like many things in life, it doesn’t always come easy. We must actively seek the meaning and place it in a new context. As renowned author and journalist Andrew Solomon states, it’s important to “take the traumas and make them part of who you've come to be, and…fold the worst events of your life into a narrative of triumph, evincing a better self in response to things that hurt.” In this touching TED Talk, Andrew shares the personal traumas he’s gone through and provides actionable ways we can overcome our own traumatic experiences.
