You've probably heard of the term resilience. But what does it really mean? Resilience is the ability to bounce back from stressful or traumatic events-which for many people include a job loss, losing a loved one, or even living through a natural disaster. But if you're queer or gender non-conforming, stressors can also include discrimination, family rejection, physical attacks, and oppression-all of which can lead to feelings of hopelessness and powerlessness. So, how can you build the resilience and confidence you need to thrive? With this compassionate guide, you'll learn how to identify and challenge internalized negative messages, create a community of support, and embrace your truest self. You'll also discover powerful tools to help you cultivate body positivity, manage stress, foster optimism and growth, and even find the strength to help others. Once you know how to tap into your personal resilience, you'll have an unlimited well you can draw from to navigate daily challenges.
