Best of Our Blogs: July 10, 2018

How do you return to a sense of normalcy after tragedy?

Whether it’s something that’s happened to us or someone else, adversity can throw us off balance.

It changes our worldview. How we cope can make a difference in the way we continue on our journey. We can grow resilient, strong and maybe even help others who are struggling or we can grow cynical, depressed and ill.

How well we cope is determined by a lot of things such as our past, personality, and our support system. If it takes you longer to deal with struggle then another person, don’t judge yourself. As you’ll read this week, a narcissistic parent, abuse, emotions inherited by a family member and lack of problem solving skills could all contribute, which can be remedied with help from our posts below.
