#91: One Surprising Thing to Bring Confidence, Connection, and Resilience….

It might surprise you, but one thing can bring confidence, connection, and resilience. It’s family history!

Take a moment to listen to the podcast, and consider how you can increase your confidence by learning about your ancestors and who they were, knowing that they are part of who you are. Feel connection to your larger family group when you get to know them, even though they may no longer be living. Finding details and stories about your ancestors can help you see that your own life isn’t solitary. You are part of a larger network of people who have struggled, suffered, learned, and brought you here. Connecting to them brings strength and community through a sense of being part of a family, something much bigger than just you. And researching your family history builds resilience. As you find tips and clues about your family members long past, you learn about traits you also have. And this tells you that there is so much more to you than who you are right now.
