Resilience In the Community

vs. spiritless

Recovering from adversity

To practice Resilience I will:

  • adapt to adverse conditions
  • seek out support and build relationships
  • find meaning in all I do
  • not let failure stop my goals
  • build on my experiences 

    Resilience, Trust, and Empathy

    When a traumatic event rocks a family or a community, they will call upon their trust and empathy to be resilient in facing a challenge. If trust is weak and connections are fragile, survival will be a much larger struggle. It’s been said that tragedy builds character, which is true but first, it reveals character. Character building will take place as the challenge is overcome and fully realized on the other side of survival.   If a family or community has strong trust and robust relationships, their Resilience will also be powerful, and recovery will be much quicker. The moral? Feed your relationships regularly to improve your Resilience.
