The Resilience Project

Much of life is beautiful and joyous, but there can be some pretty big parts that are horribly dark, scary, hopeless, and completely terrifying – especially when it’s something that you feel like you can’t talk about, and you seem to be all alone. But you don’t have to be.

Let’s shine some light in those dark places.

So much goes on beneath the surface at Middlebury where the crazy tough times, traumatic events, and difficult experiences that people deal with often seem to be a taboo subject amidst our extraordinarily busy lives. In an effort to break this norm about hiding one’s struggles under the facade of having it all together, we strive to shed some light into some of those darker moments, to share them. We’re asking one big question:

What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?

Our hope is that by sharing how we’ve been knocked down and how we’ve come back stronger, we can both support each other in our struggles and celebrate our strength in the ways we manage to overcome them.
