If flowers can teach themselves how to bloom after winter passes, so can you.
We all have some kind of trauma in our lives and have to find a way to come back from it. During your darkest hours, you certainly don't feel as though the cloud will ever lift, but it will... and you will be a changed person.
Everything happens for a reason, all of the highs and lows, you are constantly learning something new about the world, the people in it, and hopefully about yourself. The deeply devastating traumas in our existence are divorce, death, illness, accident, natural or financial disaster. All of these will take an inordinate amount of time to recover and learn from, and are the most life changing of anything you will encounter.
Anything else in the way of trauma is managed according to your hard wiring. It is a matter of personal choice, whether you 'blow a gasket' or simply 'let it slide'. Just how distressing or disturbing is it when someone at work eats the yogurt that you had saved for your snack, without asking, leaving you snack-less? How much credence do you give to this act of betrayal? Anything at all can be a 'huge deal' according to your thinking process or simply to the mood you are in at that particular moment.
Your perception of events may require some fine tuning, usually it'll require a method of managing your stress and/or relieving your burdens. Direct your energy inward for self-care and reflection to create a tranquil environment for you to reside. Once your stress level is reduced, you'll find clarity, lessen stress and worry, then you'll be able to concentrate on healing.
The flowers bloom in Spring by divine order, they just carry on, do their thing and don't worry about anything else. This is their purpose, they burst forth in glorious blossom every Spring, so beautifully, and tend to their own glory. You, too, are part of the plan, take your direction from nature, bloom where you are planted and tend to your own glory!
No matter how long the Winter, Spring is sure to follow.
