The therapy is the one who can expose you better person. Depend on person who can help themselves. It´s rarely that person who can improve themselves without therapy´s help.
vfr is right. Suffering brings different results for different people. In my personal situation, I typically go through stages. First, I'll be bitter, questioning my situation, being mad at the world, then coping, and followed by acceptance and the realization of how I can learn from that experience.
Good thread topic.
i have suffered thru hardships like losing babies and having to deal with it every day.. I used to be so bitter about it .. but i know i have to face life and go on living.. I got TJ to focus on and things around me.. Now I see myself as a better person cuz I have changed alots since then. I go to church and see things more clearly where my life is going and more happy now than before. I am in control now. Of course I still have problems but hopefully with my faith I will overcome it.
Really, it's depends on each individual...I used to be so sad, helpless, angry and bitter, which I tried to end my life several times in the past and there are times I may wonder why God didn't step in and prevent such heartaches from physical and emotionally abuse that I had gone thru then I realized how Jesus had suffered and died, so I knew that suffering touches everyone in some way whether it may be from an abuse, starving, broken heart, sickness, death etc but we can overcome and also learn how to deal with such pain that does affect our lives...by experiencing a time like this, we can become more compassionate and loving to others in similar situations yet many people still suffer for vary of reasons, and some may be a lot worse than what I've gone through, but we have the power to change a situation by taking control of our lives since every person in the world has a heart, and every heart has a place within that wants only to love and be loved...
People who already have a sour, negative attitude will usually become even more bitter. They focus on their own problems, and blame others.
People who already have a humble, positive attitude will usually become even better. They focus on other people's needs, and take responsibility for their own outcomes.
