We've all heard of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), but what you may not be familiar with is the study of PTG (Post Traumatic Growth). Positive psychology researchers study how people more often become even better versions of themselves through traumatic events and often end up helping others who have experienced a similar tragedy.

We all know the importance of first impressions, but do you know how valuable last impressions are?

“I have outgrown many things. I have outgrown relatives who gladly offer criticism but not support. I have outgrown my need to meet my family’s unrealistic expectations of me. I have outgrown women who wear masks and secretly rejoice at misfortunes. I have outgrown shrinking myself for men who are intimidated by my intelligence and outspoken nature. I have outgrown friends and family who cannot celebrate my accomplishments. I have outgrown people who conveniently disappear whenever life gets a little dark. I have outgrown those who take pleasure in gossiping and spreading negativity. I have outgrown dull, meaningless conversations that feel forced. I have outgrown those who don’t take a stand against ignorance and injustice. I have outgrown trying to please everyone. I have outgrown society constantly telling me I’m not beautiful, smart, or worthy enough. I have outgrown trying to fix every little flaw. I have outgrown my tendency to fill my mind with self-doubt and insecurity. I have outgrown trying to find reasons not to love myself. I have outgrown anything and anyone that does not enrich the essence of my soul. I have outgrown many things, and I’ve never felt freer.” — Chanda Kaushik

“The Way I Walk” by Dorothy Moffatt
The way I walk
I see my mother walking
My feet secure and firm upon the ground.
The way I talk
I hear my daughter talking
And hear my mother’s echo in the sound.
The way she thought
I find myself now thinking
The generations linking in a firm continuum of mind.
The bridge of immortality
The voice before me echoing behind.
