Resilience

If you describe a person you know or have learned about who overcame an obstacle or challenge in his or her life, you would be describing someone resilient.

Resilience is the ability to keep trying, even when things are hard. We are not born with resilience; it is something that we learn through each difficult event we encounter. It is a skill that we use throughout our lives at school, in our jobs, in our relationships. Sometimes we challenge ourselves by learning a new hobby like playing the piano or learning to longboard. Sometimes the challenges comes to us, like a school closure and stay-at-home order. Either way, we can use these challenges to learn how to overcome difficult events.
