Love is definitely a component for resilience. Here are 5 different paintings that grace that walls of five different homes. The women who chose these are all quite different. The thing I and they all have in common is the desire to love and be loved. The first love I experienced is with my parents. I suspect that is true for all of these people too. I grieve for my parents daily. I understand fully I can live without them here. I would just prefer not to have had to!!
Some grieve for husbands. Some grieve for children , friends, grandparents or even pets. I suppose we grieve for the loss of such beautiful and hopefully unconditional love. It isn't always possible to love everything a person does or says. I do think despite that we can still love another person wholly. Surely this love contributes greatly to resilience.
