Did you know resiliency is a learned skill? How does one learn it? Through difficult times. There are all sorts of ways to build your resiliency such as: developing a positive view of yourself, maintaining a hopeful outlook, taking care of yourself, taking decisive actions, making small realistic goals, changing how you interpret a crisis, and developing valuable connections. The key to resiliency is flexibility. The more flexible you are in your thinking and the more willing you are of letting go of expectations the more resilient you will become. Resiliency requires doing opposites. For example, letting yourself experience difficult emotions while also realizing the need to avoid experiencing them all the time so you can function. Or relying on others while also increasing your reliability on yourself. Or taking actions to deal with your problems while also meeting the demands of daily living. ⁣
