Catalyzing Brain Change and Recovering Our Resilience
How you respond to the issue….is the issue.
– Frankie Perez
Whether we’re facing a series of small annoyances or an utter disaster, we cultivate the flexibility – innate in our brains – to choose how we respond. It takes awareness. It takes practice. It takes perseverance. As we change old patterns and strengthen our resilience, we come to see ourselves as people who can be resilient, are competent at coping, and are competent at learning how to cope.
