Whether you faced trauma in the past, are in the midst of a traumatic situation now, or have been just dealt a blow which you suspect will be traumatic for you in the future, an important key to staying True to yourself is to remember what you do well and repeat it often. If you forget what you do well and you feel hopeless, then ask yourself what inspires you? Do what you need to do to feel inspired. Then do what you can to remember your strengths and repeat them. Then face the trauma (from the past, present or future) with unshakable Confidence.
