Resilience is the ability to deal with hard, bad, or stressful things in life in a flexible way. Having the chance to work through hard life situations is a big part of being able to “bounce back” from traumatic events. Resilience is not a trait that you either have or you don’t. Instead, it is a set of skills that you can learn and use.

Resilience is both a process and a result. It is built through habits that help you feel strong and confident in yourself. When you heal from trauma, you have to do a lot of deep, inner work. Eventually, you can come back into the world with your gifts, which are your unique contributions to the world. You might feel like you want to reach your full potential by letting out more of your heart, sharing what you’ve learned, and showing the world what you’re good at.

As a process, being resilient means doing things every day that are good for your health. You could, for example, go to therapy, learn to meditate, keep a notebook, take daily walks in nature, or start doing something creative. You have a chance to see that feeling and sharing painful emotions is part of the process of finding out more about yourself.

Being tough doesn’t mean that you won’t ever have problems. Instead, it means that you can learn the skills you need to deal with hard things in a good way. You learn to break up big, stressful experiences into smaller, easier-to-handle pieces. This helps you deal with painful things over time. You learn how to deal with hard things that happened to you in the past without letting those things define who you are. In this way, you broaden your view so you can see more than just problems.

The most important thing you can do to help your resilience is to believe that your choices and actions affect how your life turns out. This gives you the confidence that you can make chances for yourself that will help you get past obstacles in your life.

One of the most powerful parts of a transformational trip to post-traumatic growth is that it lets you take personal responsibility for the story that defines you and your life. By paying attention to the voice or narrator of your own story, you can figure out if it is full of hope and optimism or if it is full of sadness and resignation. You get to make up the story. You can change your story until it ends in a way that makes you happy and helps you grow after a traumatic event. This doesn’t mean that you can change the things that have already happened. But you can work through the pain of your past until you can find peace in the present.

When you heal from trauma, you have to do a lot of deep, inner work. Eventually, this lets you come back into the world with your gifts. Post-traumatic growth gives you a chance to stop thinking about yourself and start thinking about how you can help other people and the world. When we focus on liking someone else or working for a cause bigger than ourselves, we become more human.
