Of course, I checked the dictionary to understand the fullness of what this means. The definition of resilient is “the ability to recover readily from illness, depression, adversity, or the like.” At this point in time, I know that this is me. I found some pins to express myself like the “resilient” one following. Continue reading about being resilient…!
