Resilience is adapting, learning and growing through challenge or adversity. Conversations around resilience often treat it as an outcome – a desired state that we are personally responsible for achieving – and when we don’t, it can cause us to feel frustrated and inadequate. Rarely is resilience conceptualized as a journey or a process of effectively coping and adapting throughout our entire lifespan.
Rather than approaching resilience as an end result, it can be helpful to treat it like a process, one that can be broken up into smaller, more digestible pieces. This will hopefully helped to create space that allows us to feel successful, strong, and in control, even during times of high stress.
