I’ve heard it said that there are 2 types of people: those who experience post traumatic stress and those who post traumatic growth. I’m working on being the latter.
When scientists develop an experiment, they see failure as just another datapoint. They expect hypotheses to fail…that’s what makes it an experiment.
We often think, this thing happened to me and so now this is WHO I AM. But it is not a reflection of our self-worth and it is not who we are as a person. I’m working on seeing my failures as just another datapoint in life.
