Resilency in Action
Resiliency is often underestimated in those that are exposed to adverse events or loss. Yet I witness this resiliency every day as I listen to people share with me their stories and experiences of the stressors and the challenges they have in their lives.
After the Christchurch earthquakes I had more than one parent say to me, that as a parent who has had a child die, or as the parent who cares for a child living with a complex health condition; that they stand amongst the rubble of their own earthquakes. They could resonate with the people of Christchurch as they felt their own worlds had been changed forever. Their hopes and dreams had been torn down and the landscape of what they once knew was crushed and shattered.
