Answering the prompt; Which aspects do you think makes a person unique?
My answer at this time will have to be trauma.
Everyone experiences trauma. Newborns experience the trauma of birth, and the sick and elderly experience the trauma of facing the end of their life and no one is exempt from the traumas in between. How a person handles their trauma makes them unique from everyone else.
No one handles trauma the same. This is a fact that creates differences and relatability in us all. Taking a look back at your life you will see how each traumatic event changed you and, in most ways, helped you to grow. I am no different. Each trauma created a new facet to who I am and helped me get through the next trauma. Some of those traumas actually inspired me and helped me to forge my path. These things that happen to us have a meaning and a depth that we can only understand after they happen. We should all take a step back and ponder how these terrible things help us to grow and blossom into our best selves.
One thought on “Daily Writing Prompt 4/3/23”
I was already thinking about the many ways to process trauma and choose the response that ultimately creates who you are. Astoundingly enough, these responses also create the person you will become!
Trauma response builds a person. In time, a person can choose their responses and those choices will follow the desired path to this person’s destined higher self. Should a person focus on what they want their response to be or what kind of person they want to be? Either begets the same outcome. The goal is there, the steps are unique to each person.
