You have to be pretty resilient to spend time in these forums, beating off the lack of context, suffering the merciless blows of absent background.Hi!
Does anyone know a good synonym for the word resilient in the context of a "He had heard that teenage girls we're remarkably resilient"
Thus the context is important: one adapts to changes, but one is not usually said to adapt to tragedies or trauma.Adaptable, may be an option. But I am not native, I just base this in one of the meanings in Spanish, and I think we could say adaptable for a teen in this case.
As for synonyms, have you tried a thesaurus, baclanova? Here's one.Even after six months of sharing a house with one, Brian Kemp - a bachelor - was no expert on the mysteries of teenage girls. He had been told they were remarkably resilient, and yet his niece, bent over that puppy with her hands quiet and tense in the golden fur, did not seem resilient. In fact, he was not sure if he had ever seen a more fragile sight.
