Hmm, I (unfortunately) don't think that my lack of beliefs made me stronger in the face of violence as I otherwise would have been.  Though taking my personal well being as a job for me rather than a job for the supernatural does come with an inherent strength.

I would think I may have been stronger if it hadn't been for the advice of believers in fact.  It's so easy to say 'it'l all work out' or 'i believe things will turn out for the best' regardless if you link the statements to belief in the supernatural or not, they are burred in un founded belief, and are nothing more than  'get out' statements in the face of offering real advice or support. (though it can be very hard to offer support at all, and its all a lot of people know)

The way you'r raised can help a lot when dealing with things, and I'm sure genetics play a role to.  For me though, I needed my coping strategies overhauled with the help of therapists and support groups.  

Sometimes admitting defeat and that help is needed is the single strongest thing anyone can do, and I would beg anyone who feels they have run through all the options available to give it a go.  Even then, it may take a few goes before finding people that work for you.

Taking the time and going the extra mile to help ones self is something anyone should be proud of no matter how they go about it.  To show such love and compassion to ones self is such an amazing thing, and its something we all don't do enough of.  If we cant learn to love our selves, how can we expect to love others or for them to love us?

Love the group.  I think we have all been effected in some way by violence.  I don't think I have any un resolved issues on violence but what an effect even the threat of it can have on our lives.  

Here mostly for support and chat.
