"There is also something called post traumatic growth"
"If you assume that there is something wrong with people, if you do it long enough, expectations are very strong. There is also something called posttraumatic growth, where you come out of a situation like that (combat) and you actually feel kinder toward your fellow man, fellow women; that you’re actually a better husband, father; you actually have a closer relationship with your God. You do not have to go around apologizing as if there is some rage in you. Although if we tell our veterans enough that this is what’s wrong with them, they may actually start believing it. I would just say there is one misperception of our veterans, and that is they are somehow damaged goods. I don’t buy it and I think that that kind of self-pity while victimhood in America is exalted; I don’t think our veterans should join those ranks (General James Mattis, 2017).
