Stop expecting the worst after a trauma
Any traumatic event is going to leave you with memories and fears that will last long after the event. There are ways to get over trauma, but time is generally the only way to truly get over something awful that has happened. One of the things with which you may be struggling after an accident or serious incident is negativity, and expecting the worst from everything. Here are some ways in which you can start to feel more positive about life.
Try to live in the moment
This is easier said than done, particularly after a trauma, but focusing on where you are and what you are doing right now is a fantastic way to let go of negativity and stop expecting bad things to happen. You will usually find when you look back at something about which you were worried in the past that it did work out and you did survive. In many cases you won’t even have struggled as much as you may have thought you would. Try to enjoy each day, and take life as it comes.

Keep a journal
Keep a journal in which you list your negative thoughts. Writing them down can help to lessen them, particularly if you don’t feel comfortable talking about your fears to other people. Not only this, but when you look back over your fears a little while down the line, you can start to see how unfounded they were, and even if a negative experience has occurred you can see how far you have come since then.
