How do you react to unexpected difficulties?
Healthy, resilient people have stress-resistant personalities and learn valuable lessons from rough experiences. Resilience is the process of successfully adapting to difficult or challenging life experiences.
Resilient people overcome adversity, bounce back from setbacks, and can thrive under extreme, on-going pressure without acting in dysfunctional or harmful ways.
The most resilient people recover from traumatic experiences stronger, better, and wiser. When hurt or distressed, resilient people expect to find a way to have things turn out well.
They feel self-reliant and have a learning/coping reaction rather than the victim/blaming reaction that is so common these days.
