Whether it is a fire, tsunami, or a school shooting, tragedy can come in many forms. A tragedy can be very disruptive both in our relationships and work as well as inside of us – in our thoughts, feelings, and behavior.
We can lose our home in a fire. The many complications of losing a home can create great hardship. We may have no safe place to sleep. We may have lost someone we love dearly to fire.
These complications of our life can be magnified by our internal reactions. We may lose sleep. Our attention may wander. Memories may flood our mind suddenly. We may react angrily for little reason.
