about resilience ……

I wish people understood that it’s never the terrible things that happened to you that make you stronger;

it’s the resiliency-building skills you engage to
process the terrible things.

What doesn’t kill you can make you stronger, but

only

if you feel your feelings, process your experience

(i.e., figure out what the
experience means to you),

and engage the protective factors around you-

mainly, the power of connection.”

{Katherine Schafler, NYC psychotherapist}
