No experience is a cause of success or failure. We do not suffer from the shock of our experiences, so-called trauma - but we make out of them just what suits our purposes.
Alfred Adler trauma quote

— Ronnie James Dio

I feel I'm able to get rid of any demons lurking in my psyche through my writing, which leaves me free to create all of this and to enjoy our family life, stepping away from all the fictional traumas and the dramas. If I write about family in crisis, then I won't have to live through it, I guess.
— Jodi Picoult

Just as the body goes into shock after a physical trauma, so does the human psyche go into shock after the impact of a major loss.
