It is probable that most people have experienced adverse trauma and other stressors in the past year. Becoming more resilient gets one through a difficult time; resilience is the ability to cope with adversity and to use life challenges to build strength. It is like working out in the gym, it takes time to build our resiliency muscle; a psychological attribute that allows us to maintain our sense of self in spite of stressors.
Resilience is a set of traits that allows one to move forward when life gets hard, you aren't born with them, you must learn and earn them. In the words of Glennon Doyle, "we can do hard things!" It is important to focus on cultivating resilience. How do we become more resilient?
Flex your resiliency muscle and build the strength to forge on into 2022. Lean in and use the tools and skills you have gained thus far. Resilient people don't let adversity define them and they appreciate what they have.
