Resilience is not what happens to you. It is how we react, and adapt finally overcoming any struggle.
It is the capacity of a strained body to recover its size and shape after deformation caused especially by comprehensive stress. Hence the ability to recover from or simply adjust through an easier transition to misfortune or change.
Life will never get easier or more forgiving, we just stand back up, and recover.
We re-engage stronger and more resilient, like a diamond that was once a piece of charcoal that handled stress exceptionally well.
We become resilient when showing;
• Action oriented approach
• Have strong relationships and ask for help
• Have faith
• Sense of meaningfulness
• Can use past successes to confront current challenges
• Can view stress as a challenge way to get stronger
• Can adapt to change
• Strong self-esteem, self-efficiency
• Use humor, patience, tolerance, and optimism
• Have personal goals
• Forgiving skills
