Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study is to compare the experiences of individuals overcoming the COVID-19 epidemic with those of characters in The Maze Runner series, aiming to investigate the concept of psychological resilience.

Methodology and Approaches: The study utilises a comparative analysis between real-life experiences of individuals dealing with COVID-19 and the fictional adventures depicted in The Maze Runner series. It employs an interdisciplinary approach that combines insights from psychology, literature, and sociology to understand how resilience manifests in the face of adversity.

Outcome: The research aims to clarify the ways in which resilience manifests itself during times of crisis through the comparative examination of real-life experiences and fictional narratives. The results offer insightful guidance to individuals, groups, and society at large, contributing to the ongoing conversation about psychological resilience and providing nuanced perspectives on managing misfortune and uncertainty effectively.

Conclusion: In conclusion, there are important lessons to be learned about coping strategies, resilience, and adaptation from the similarities between the COVID-19 epidemic and the The Maze Runner trilogy. In the same vein, those overcoming the pandemic's obstacles have demonstrated resilience in the face of uncertainty, social isolation, and life disruption. In the end, realising these parallels improves our comprehension of human resilience and guides initiatives to help people and communities confronting hardship in both real and fictitious settings.
