If you have survived some kind of human trauma, you can’t beat yourself up for having merely survived. Though you may have, as a result, been somewhat arrested in your progress towards your maximum potential and your ultimate life goals, you did survive. So many did not. You are here to tell the tale, share your testimony, and by it, aid others similarly situated. He or she who does not SURVIVE adverse human circumstance, has not even the hope of subsequently thriving.
