A Spiritual Battle
Updated: Dec 23, 2019
Dr. Van Der Kolk has been a leading researcher of PTSD, since it first became a diagnosis. This excerpt is taken from an interview done on the site, onbeing.org. In it he says; "I really think that trauma really does confront you with the best and the worst. You see the horrendous things that people do to each other, but you also see the resiliency, the power of love, the power of caring, the power of commitment, the power of individual survival. In some ways, I dont think you can appreciate the glory of life unless you know and have seen the dark side of life."
An excerpt from the book, " Twice A Warrior": "However, no matter what you were before the experience of combat, your life changes dramatically. You feel different because you are different."
If I told you there is no need to question what you have become, would you believe me?
We have become warriors, a chosen few a small percentage of the population that has become the essence of strength and courage amongst men.
Join me and lets discuss it.
