The occurrence of resiliency in the human experience has been the focus of extensive research in the last decade. Using hermeneutic methodology, this theoretical study explores text-based data of three resiliency traits, attachment theory, and a comparison of avoidant attachment behaviors. Patterns of abilities form and protective factors arise as the resilient person overcomes traumatic situations. Three specific factors—cognitive abilities, emotional regulation, and spirituality—are explored as they correlate with resiliency. A depth psychological approach values the meaning held beneath resiliency traits, which are viewed symbolically through the myth of Eros and Psyche, in particular with regard to the ways in which Psyche’s resilient traits help her overcome adversity and how they may no longer serve her after the trials have passed. The development of self-reliance as a result of trauma may contribute to loneliness and traits of avoidant attachment.
