354: Post-Traumatic Growth and the Beauty in Brokenness with Edith Shiro

By June 25, 2024No Comments

Why do some people seem to bounce back from life’s hardest blows, while others stay down?

Sometimes, you might be the one who can’t seem to find your footing after a struggle. And if you’re actively denying your pain or comparing it to others, thinking, “What I went through isn’t that bad; I shouldn’t be feeling this way,” you’re going to miss the lesson.

Instead, if you can be honest and say, “This is breaking me. What is the lesson here?” and dive deep into that pain to uncover the growth beneath, you’re going to change the way you experience your life.

Our guest today, Edith Shiro, a clinical psychologist and the author of “The Unexpected Gift of Trauma: The Path to Post-Traumatic Growth.” Edith is here to teach us how to transform our suffering into our superpower. She’ll share insights from her book and her clinical experience, helping us understand that while trauma may not always be visible to others, it’s our own personal experience that matters most. By embracing our pain and looking for the lessons it holds, we can unlock a path to profound personal growth and transformation.

We Will Learn

  • How belonging creates healing
  • How spiritual development changes your brain
  • The five stages of post-traumatic growth that turn our pain into power
