Anything Past '4' Is YOU!

I once heard someone say "anything past '4' is about YOU". This post is going to explain what this statement means since I think it's a useful way to assess whether your emotional reaction to a situation is appropriate or more than is truly necessary and therefore not helpful to anyone (especially to you).

Forging Iron In The Furnace of Crisis

When a person experiences a life crisis, much of what was once familiar is no longer recognizable.What used to be stable is rocked to the core and the old familiar ways of living no longer seem to work.

I'm speaking not about the direst tragedies of life, such as the sudden death of a loved one, a brutal assault or similarly terrifying event.  These are "Big-T" traumas that threaten to a person's very ability to function and generally result in some form of post-traumatic stress disorder.  This is an entirely different category of pain deserving specialized treatment, and not the source of any 'life lesson'.
