It is important to point out that resilience is not a trait as such, but a dynamic process based on the emotional stability of the person.

It is built from the experience of emotional suffering and helps us to maintain or improve our mental stability in the face of life and stressful situations. It is generated spontaneously, but there are strategies that can help us to enhance it and that can be put into practice when we find ourselves in difficult situations.

We cannot deny what is generated within us. Personally, we must learn to recognize and manage these feelings or emotions. It is important to keep in mind that it is not the situations themselves that define the evaluations, but the personal evaluation that we make of each situation.

Sometimes we cannot modify the situations but we can learn to modify the way we interpret them, as resilient people do. To enhance resilience within ourselves, we have to learn to identify, accept and manage emotions.

  • You get angry less: It refers to the fact that, getting angry makes you waste time, you don't look for solutions. However, getting angry is never the solution and resilient people look for solutions.

  • You surround yourself with good friends: A resilient person exudes positivity, so they attract people. They ask for help when they need it most, without blocking themselves, which helps them to weave a good friendship network.
