“Psychologists have long known that people can be scarred for years by a single event.
The term for it is trauma, but what is the opposite?
What word would describe a positive emotional state that lingers for decades in response to a single event?
There is no opposite of trauma, because no single good event has such a lasting impact.”(Tierney, John. The Power of Bad (p. 7). Penguin Publishing Group. Kindle Edition. )
But is that ultimately true?
Is there nothing we can call the opposite of trauma?
How does the Resurrection of Jesus Christ fit into that picture?
