What Makes Some People More Resilient Than Others

We never really know what’s going to happen in life. What if every disappointment/heartbreak/setback was actually a stepping stone to the muscle ……..resiliency!

Those stones that if you had to choose, you wouldn’t dare step on. But, life picked you up and plopped you/ planted you there.

What awful times in life were good training for a pandemic, for political and social upheaval, for economic and financial uncertainty?

How we cope depends on what is in our resilience toolbox. For some people, like my ex-husband, the toolbox is filled with drugs. For others it can be drinking, overeating, gambling, shopping. But these don’t promote resilience.
