We may not be able to outright choose our emotions.

Our thoughts and feelings stem from a long history of how we react to different situations.

But what is reassuring is understanding that it IS POSSIBLE for anyone to live with vitality.

If you haven't read “Man’s Search For Meaning” I mean it’s the absolute most incredible book when it comes to this concept.

Aside from personal stories I know from clients, this book was the most impactful and clear for me about the mind's ability to thrive through difficulty.

Here’s a quote from the author Viktor Frankl about his finding happiness amidst the chaos of living in concentration camps:

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way. When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”

I wanna tackle specifics about what you can do to make growth a real possibility and give some idea of where this research comes from, but first I want to point out that the examples I’ve shared so far are about the extreme, massive external traumas, things that happen to us that are unbelievable and near unbearable.

But the important thing is that this applies also to our day to day, to the struggles every one of us face year over year at any given moment as a result of the suffering and adversity that can come from simply being human.
