It is often the most difficult thing to do, but asking those around us for help is integral in building resilience. Often, we feel that not having all the answers ourselves is a type of failure, however this is simply not the case.
“When we try hard to find the answers to difficult questions in the face to traumatic events, that trying too hard can block the answers from arising naturally in their own due time,”6 says Brad Waters MSW.
“The most resilient among us know how to reach out for help.”7
People who live and work in rural communities have to deal with a specific set of hardships which can and do take their toll over time.8
Resilience is something that has to be taught, and its habits should be nurtured through a balance of mindfulness, gratitude and empathy towards others. The Resilience Project teaches these three pillars, and provides practical and tangible strategies for individuals, families, students and professionals alike to cope better in the ever-evolving world around us.
