Life is continuous. Past affects present and present affects future. Serious events are only resultant of one’s personality traits and conditioning till that time and any twists and turns after that are also linked to the personality traits like a chain.
Serious events are nothing but highly stressful and undesirable experiences one might have to go through, and may promote or block further growth and development depending on a person’s past and memories.
People who have low self-esteem, and a self-loathing tendency may choose to destroy their own and other’s lives after going through serious events and on the other hand people who have high self-esteem and self-love will accept serious events as a learning opportunity and make improvements and add happiness in their and other’s life.
Thank you for your question dear reader 🙂
