Resilience or being resilient is something that concerns us all, but probably isn’t something we draw attention to, or think about.
When we have resilience, we tend not to see failure as something to dwell on, but we see it as an opportunity to help us move on. We accept that to fail can sometimes be a part of what we need to go through, but instead of doing nothing, we deal with what we’ve failed at. Resilience helps us bounce back, so that we can go on to make different, but better choices.
Where does it come from?
Resilience comes from within. Our environment, our peers and our schooling all contribute to how resilient we are. Any significant influence or event in our lives will have a large and great impact on us personally. We use resilience to successfully live our lives, whilst our inner strength and abilities are tested through those experiences.
Although I wasn’t aware of just how resilient I was, I must have been to have come this far and to do what I do now. Resilience has taught me determination, it has also taught me to cope in difficult circumstances, particularly whilst growing up. My hope now, is that it is something I can keep up.
