Resilience means being able to adapt to and recover from tough or challenging situations. By learning to be resilient, we face new challenges more easily.
When something difficult happens to us (or our family or friends), it’s natural to feel upset, confused or stressed out. That doesn’t mean we’ve failed or are reacting in the wrong way. But being resilient helps us to accept these feelings and move forward through them.
You might have heard the phrase ‘being able to bounce back’.
Everybody has to face hard times sometimes, so life isn’t always about avoiding the bad stuff – it’s about learning to pick yourself up and carry on being the awesome person you are. There are always going to be challenges – it’s how you meet them and move through them that counts.
