Fighting with Life On Living

    • Philosophy

Dr. Nguyen continues to offer her answer to the question of what makes life worth living through an examination of her experience with another survivor of trauma. In this account, she will look at how helplessness and crushing disappointment are managed by turning to a drive toward invulnerability. she will recount how the traumatic loss of control is “survived” by a compulsion to force others to submit to his will or reject him. The fear of rejection and the fight against the uncontrollability of life are expressed through a rigid refusal to acknowledge one’s humanity, and to allow others to offer him their humanity.
