So let me share some of my favorite lines from this interview:

Sometimes we are in a position where we have to decide to be vulnerable and understand that that is not a weakness, that is a strength, because you have to have a lot of strength, emotional strength to be able to say, I am afraid in front of others or I fail on this in front of others so that I need help. So I believe that we need to remove the bias. Yeah. Asking for help doesn’t mean you are weak or that you fail means that you are smart enough to know that you are not in a good place.” – Dr. Z

“When I had my car accident, it was a really traumatic experience for me. I saw so much emotional and physical, even physical, emotional growth after that because I developed the level of empathy that I, you know, I couldn’t have experienced before and understanding and compassion and kindness and all those things. So those are part of the post-traumatic growth.”
– Dr. Rozina

“If you go down and you have the capacity to. Understand what is going on. Have introspection, self compassion and self empathy. And you open your heart and your mind right to others and to yourself so you can learn from that traumatic event. You will not only bounce back to your baseline, but this time you will even go farther. And that’s what is called post-traumatic growth, where you come back, but you come back stronger. It’s a better version of yourself.”

– Dr. Z
