Resilience is the ability to cope, adapt and recover from difficult experiences such as trauma, sickness, adversity, threats, divorce, tragedy or financial/work stressors.
We strengthen our resilience by listing the for and against; knowing that we can survive the worst possible case scenario; gathering the support of those who care; move towards our end goal, slowly but surely; persistence will ensure we grow stronger and stronger with each challenge. This way we learn from each experience and adapt quicker; we prioritize those relationships that support us, and avoid the toxic ones! Our communication skills and empathy improve, we become more authentic, we avoid blocks and games, and we grow with experience.
It’s all about making lemonade out of the lemons life throw us, and we do have the ability and resources to turn it around!
How strong is your resilience?
