Many people have different adjectives and phrases to answer the question “what is resilience” but each answer is the same. People know what it means to be resilient, but there are not many resilient people in the world. Not many people could get beaten, verbally abused, and come back against all the odds. To be resilient people need to keep their dignity and their pride and that is exactly what Louis Zamperini, Ed Roberts, Jason Zimmerman, and Frederick Douglass did. These four men had all the odds against them with so much suffering, but they rolled up their sleeves and fought through that pain because they are the true definition of resilience.
What are specific things that can promote resilience for an individual?

I enjoyed how the book included that resilience is not a fixed personality trait and that it is a life-long activity. I have never thought of it in that way and it was an interesting way to describe it, but in my opinion, it is true. We are not born with a trait to be resilient, we have to learn it throughout our experiences in life. There are many different times in our life where we have to be resilient without even consciously thinking about it. This book was extremely helpful for me because I got to learn a new approach to being resilient through the things that happen in my life.

Personal Evaluation on Possession of Resilience A life experience of mine is discussed below to illustrate my possession of resilience, followed by discussion on ways to promote my resilience. When I was in Secondary 4, I faced great stress and I was diagnosed to be suffering from depression. Socially, I cannot get along well with my new classmates, who will be my classmates from Form 4 to Form 6, as we have great difference between our values and behaviors. Most of my new classmates were not hard-working, not respecting the teachers and would disturb the classes by making loud noise and leaving their seats freely. This obstructed my learning and caused conflict between us.
