Why do some people with PTSD actively seek recovery (get therapy and meds, do research about PTSD, try new strategies for recovery, write about it, etc.) but others seem unable or resistant to make even small steps toward recovery?

(I have PTSD and am in recovery. I'm working with some individuals who say they want to get better. One person takes steps to get better; another won't even listen to information about PTSD let alone suggestions for healing)

I guess it's because everyone is different.Maybe some are so symptomatic they are kinds frozen in all of it unable to take any steps forward.

Idk,there's lots of reasons.

perhaps it is not their time to heal yet. some people find hard times addressing their ptsd because talking about it might be too hard. i think it is important to give people the space and time they need and allow them to make the decision to choose recovery.
