Re­silience. It’s a per­son­al­ity trait that is much talked about – and some­thing which ev­ery par­ent hopes to in­stil in their child – but how do we go about build­ing it? In large part the an­swer lies in shar­ing our sto­ries of loss so that we can take hope from the ex­pe­ri­ences of oth­ers when re­cov­er­ing from tragedy. To­day’s is­sue in­cludes two such hon­est ac­counts: Cé­line Dion open­ing up about fam­ily life after the death of her hus­band René Angélil, and Mag­dalena Roze speak­ing for the first time about mis­car­ry­ing dur­ing her first preg­nancy. As Roze tells Stel­lar, “There’s a lot of peo­ple suf­fer­ing in si­lence. So I hope sto­ries like mine can give some­one com­fort that they’re not alone.”
