I grew up not knowing that I’ve been developing the term “Resilience” despite misunderstanding it from all the challenging events in my life, from being a people pleaser to finally owning and embracing the authentic me. I am still continuously improving my Resilience with adversity in life, so you, too, can continue developing your Resilience.
“When we learn how to become resilient, we learn how to embrace the beautifully broad spectrum of the human experience.”
― Jaeda Dewalt
