This experience fertilises the ground for a deeper questioning of other status quos. Traumatic events like this, have an uncanny ability to force us to press the pause, rewind, restart button, as we each experience our own FML moments. The sting of trauma forces our minds to step out of the movie we have been living, to sit and observe for a while; it forces us to separate ourselves from what we thought was true and constant, what we perceived to be a part of our being, and question everything. Without this sting, the humdrum of life would continue to consume us day to day and our focus would be on getting through the menial tasks as quickly as possible. We would continue to live our lives as if they are scheduled like some play, that you act it, not knowing when exactly you signed up for that play. Now our minds are opened and we have to pause and ask ourselves if we are even doing the right thing.
