There’s no such thing as ruining your life. Life’s a pretty resilient thing, it turns out.

Resilience is that  quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them resilient person prepare for the bounceback at the right time


Being resilient does not mean that a person doesn’t experience difficulty or distress. Emotional pain and sadness are common in people who have suffered major adversity or trauma in their lives. In fact, the road to resilience is likely to involve considerable emotional distress.

Once we face failure, embracing it honestly and fully, its true gifts, which are subtleand not easily quantifiable, can emerge.
It is true that

Failure is brutal, ugly, and unpleasant. Whenever it happens, it is profoundly unsettling because it shatters your certainties; it makes you question your place in the world, your worthiness.
But there are positive side of failure as well:

People who fail repeatedly develop persistence in the face of difficulties. Failing an exam when you were 18 was catastrophic at the time, but it caused you to take a detour, which allowed you to have some experiences without which you cannot conceive of yourself today. The fabric of our lives is always made of such failures,”

  1. It is true we don’t know our own strength until we are challenged by something pretty major in our life and we come through it with the right thinking. Your point about not comparing yourself to others is not easy when we are constantly reminded that we are in a consumer driven society where competition is given too much emphasis. Competing with others takes away your authentic power and only leads to unhappiness, whereas being the best person you can be and accepting who you really are is the best way to live your life creatively. There is only one you in the whole world so we are completely unique.

  2. I would agree with you, but i would flip this onto positives, so recognising what you have got. What friends (not quantity, quality) do you have, how supportive are your family, where do you feel most comfortable and so on. Recognising what you have and the value in it is the best starting place for anyone wishing to increase their resilience.
