Characteristics Of Resilient People - 1

It is the very nature of life to strive to continue in being.
Since this continuance can be secured only by constant renewals,
life is a self-renewing process.
~ John Dewey
The ability to bounce back

How quickly we bounce back from crises and tragedy is dependent on how resilient we are. Sometimes, however, our lack of understanding about our life experiences — or habits that don’t serve us — keeps us from adapting when new stresses affect us. As we reflect upon and come to terms with our personal history, and take steps to adjust the undermining attitudes and habits, the greater will be our ability to bounce back quickly.
