(almost the original frame : just tilted it a little afterwards on purpose)

"On peut s'abandonner à la souffrance ou faire une carrière de victime, ces solutions sont anti-résilientes puisque tout projet de développement en sera arrêté. A l'opposé, faire quelque chose de sa souffrance, se servir de la contrainte à comprendre pour la transcender et en faire un projet social ou culturel constitue un tremplin de résilience."

in "Autobiographie d'un épouvantail" de Boris Cyrunlik
(*) "Le Murmure des fantômes" est le titre d'un autre ouvrage de Cyrulnik et pourrait s'appliquer ici aux personnages d'arrière-plan


╰☆╮Thanks again, C***** (You can read the context of the shot here).


"We can give way to suffering or make a victim's career, these solutions are non-resilient since all projects of development would be stopped. On the contrary, to make something out of one's suffering, using the constraint to understand in order to transcend it and make a social or cultural project with it builds up a springboard for the resilience."

in "Autobiography of a scarecrow" de Boris Cyrulnik
(*) "The whispering of ghosts" is the title of another book by Cyrulnik and could be applied here to the characters left in the background
