Disappointment, pain, disaster or loss can be a traumatic experience & trigger a negative emotion within us. How we deal with it matters. We usually either run from it, ignore it, suppress it or take it out on people.
RESILIENCE is the ability to withstand, adapt to, & recover from adversity, stress, disappointment & trauma. It gives us the internal ability to MOVE FORWARD from a crisis, trauma or pain. It gives you the inner will TO NOT GiVE UP! Most importantly it gives you the ability to work through your pain, to grow & THRIVE despite your circumstances.
Resilience helps a person readjust their emotional well being to a balanced state after pain, loss or trauma. One key to growing in your resilience is gratitude.
REFRAME YOUR THOUGHTS!
