We’ve seen an overwhelming number of tragedies in these past months: in the U.S. and various parts of the world. Some of us may have felt hopeless; some may want to give up. Yet, without denying the pain, what is striking is the way that individuals and communities have responded, determined to start over and rebuild lives. Is this resilience inherent in our character, or can it be taught? Why do some people succeed against all odds while others are discouraged despite better opportunities? We explore some of the recent research on resilience and offer a perspective from families and individuals who have experienced how to overcome life’s obstacles.
