“I think that people already have resilience. I think that it's labelled in a way, where they don't really understand that. If you have survived prison, if you have survived waking up day in and day out, just maintaining to get through that, trying, you're practicing resilience, right then. When you're dealing with the hardships, day in and day out, that's resilience.”
Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. It is the characteristic or trait that allows people to thrive despite inconceivable hardship and experiences of trauma. This podcast discusses how we are all resilience and the importance of support throughout your journey.
