Whether you are dealing with a personal, global, or a combination of the two issues, developing resilience can help you manage stress, triumph over hardship, and enjoy the better days to come. Recently, it appears as though the globe is lurching from crisis to catastrophe. A global epidemic, significant changes in how we live our daily lives, economic uncertainty, political upheaval, and social unrest have all occurred in addition to various natural disasters. Then there are the traumas that people go through on a personal level, such losing a loved one, losing a job, divorcing, experiencing violent crime, or being involved in tragic accidents. For many of us, this is a period of unprecedented difficulty and turmoil. Going through difficult circumstances can have a detrimental effect on your outlook, health, and mood, whether a personal tragedy, a worldwide disaster, or both have interrupted your life. You could feel overwhelmed by tension and anxiety as well as a sense of helplessness. It’s possible that you’re having a hard time accepting what you’ve lost, that you’re experiencing a wide range of tough, conflicting feelings, or that you’re unclear of how to move forward with your life. You might even have a total loss of control over your life and a sense of helplessness in the face of potential future events. Even while there is no way to completely avoid sadness, adversity, or pain in life, there are techniques to help calm the turbulent waters and restore a sense of control. Resilience is the ability to cope with loss, change, and trauma—aspects of life that have always been unavoidable, even before these remarkable times. You may find it simpler to handle challenging circumstances, adjust to events that change your life, and bounce back from hardship and tragedy if you develop resilience.
