How to Turn Around a Negative Experience

We all have emotional “hurricanes,” like fits of anger, or a flood of sadness, or trauma, loss, or disruption. You have three options: You can ignore it all; you can become devastated by it; or you can look it in the face and find a way to grow from it. People who know how to do that harness their suffering and negative experiences, and use them to become greater people. Don’t ignore it. Don’t get depressed by it. Instead, transform darkness into light.
