Life Is... projects
Out Of Adversity
Website launched April 2013
We developed this website as a place where people can share stories... but not just any stories.
This website has stories of hope and healing, stories where people have come ‘out of adversity’ and into a life transformed.
Such stories help others find their way and show that, contrary to much current psychological theory, there is always opportunity for change, for self healing and for overcoming trauma.
And if enough of us share our stories and find that there is similar experience... well... this then becomes the ‘norm’ and people always know that adversity is only part of our story, there are always other parts to come...
