Quotes: experiences as purposes

No experience is a cause of success or failure. We do not suffer from the shock of our experiences, so-called trauma – but we make out of them just what suits our purposes.

―Alfred Adler

(無論任何經驗,它本身並不是成功也不是失敗的原因。我們不要因自身經驗所產生的衝擊(也就是心理創傷)而痛苦,而要由經驗中找出能夠達成目的的東西。不要由經驗來決定自我,而是由我們賦予經驗的意義來決定。

―阿德勒,節錄自岸見一郞、古賀史健著 《被討厭的勇氣》 )
