Clemantine Wamariya, storytelling and human rights activist, explains how to adapt in difficult situations.

“When life has put you in a place of intense pain—it could be both physical, it could be mental, it could be psychological—there is a moment, at least for me personally, where I feared to be joyful. And I felt that the minute that I felt that joy, it is going to be taken away from me,” shares Clemantine.

When life has put you in a place of intense pain, it could be both physical, it could be mental, it could be psychological, there is a moment, at least for me personally, where I feared to be joyful. And I felt that the minute that I felt that joy, it is going to be taken away from me. It's something probably we don't really think about in terms of adapting, in terms of psychological and also as well as just an emotional, being able to be in joy. And it's something that has taken me awhile, and relearning how to be joyful, it's one of the most rewarding practice and one of the most sort of, let's just say a gift that you could give yourself.

I really believe in terms of that place of adapting, it's all internal. The external, all the external things of course could be triggers, but once you learn the external and you take the internal and you line it together, and then you create sound. You bring in smell, you bring in the taste, you bring in all those different things, that's what I'm excited to continue sharing with people. I'm still learning, but I'm excited to share that as a part of adapting.
