#NSCW2020: SUHi Counseling Online Resources

We are celebrating National School Counseling Week. 

Today, let’s talk about how resilience can contribute to healing and well-being. Christopher Reeve played one of the greatest heroes of all-time – Superman – in four movies. But a horse-riding accident left him paralyzed from the neck down, proving humans are more vulnerable than the characters they play on stage and screen. Reeve devoted the last decade of his life to finding a cure for paralysis, raising millions of dollars through his foundation. 

He once said, “A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” His resilience and grit in the face of tragedy, not his costume or his on-screen superpower, are what made him a true hero. 

What can you do to help others who are struggling or in need? What can others do to help you become more resilient in your life? 

Give this some thought and come see me if you’d like to talk. Be someone’s hero today.
