Life happens. Determining how you handle the difficulties and challenges that are inevitable demonstrates your resilience. The question is: how do you go about it? Do you jump into problem solving mode? Do you allow things to take their course? Or, do you immediately reach out for help?
Bouncing back from a difficult situation sometimes requires the skill to problem solve. In doing so, it’s important to assess your options. Having the ability to do this often presents the best opportunity for coming through to the other side by picking the best option and proceeding.
Sometimes resilience also requires that we allow things to take their course. One of the best ways to approach this is with a positive attitude and knowing that the challenge with time will pass. Sometimes we can’t control the outcome but keeping things in perspective can assist with navigating them a little easier.
In other cases, seeking help is the ideal way to implement being resilient. Seeking the advice, counsel, and support of others can be very helpful. When we’re going through a challenge we aren’t always able to think clearly, therefore having someone there to provide needed assistance may be the best course of action.
Difficulties are guaranteed. How you navigate them is the key to resilience. The best approach may be problem solving, however there are times where things have to take their natural course while other times, seeking the help of others is beneficial. Whatever method is used, ultimately not letting challenges get the best of you is the most important thing. Resilience undoubtedly builds character!
