That which does not kill us makes us stronger

It’s true: “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”

Friedrich Nietzsche’s quote had been challenged for years, but one UB researcher has provided scientific research to support Nietzsche’s famous statement. In “Resilience: A silver lining to experiencing adverse life events,” Mark Seery concludes that “facing difficulties can also promote benefits in the form of greater propensity for resilience when dealing with subsequent stressful situations.”

Prior to Seery’s research, psychology experts had held that traumatic life experiences left more of a negative mark on a person’s life than a positive one. But, as Seery explained to The Telegraph, “Just because something bad has happened to someone doesn’t mean they’re doomed to be damaged from that point on.”

It should also be noted that Kelly Clarkson’s research—and most recent single—supports both Nietzsche and Seery’s theory.
