Human beings are resilient creatures. Even when we experience serious and significant trauma, often times we are lucky enough to come out safely on the other side. And while this isn’t always the case, when you do have a near-death experience happen to you, it’s not something you take for granted. It’s something that stays with you for the rest of your life. Whether it was a freak accident that is still hard to rationalize or explain, a health problem you managed to overcome, or something else that scared you to the core, there are certain moments people can look back on and know they are fortunate to have defeated.
