Throughout your life, you have noticed people who seem to handle with ease, stressful or difficult situations, comparative with others. These conditions may appear extremely hard for you to handle, and you may consider them as a threat to your daily well-being. But some folks never give up, no matter how many knocks life gives them. It is a quality called emotional resilience, and it enables a person to deal with different crises without becoming demoralised or brought down by the events.

People, who are emotionally resilient, have a set of characteristics that helps them face any obstacle. They are more aware of the things that happen to them, and they know what feelings they experience and why. They are perseverant in any situation and believe that the strength of coordinating their destiny lies in their hands. They are always optimist and have a well developed sense of humour, always ready to laugh instead of letting worries overwhelm them. Although they are seen as strong people, they value the support of their family members and friends, and will always seek to be surrounded by them. No matter what type of experience they have, they will always learn from it and accept obstacles as a way to become stronger.

Here is what you need to know if you wish to become an emotional resilient person:

  • Never Give Up: No matter how hard the situation becomes, do not give up and continue developing your emotional resilience.
  • Change Your Attitude: You need to develop a positive attitude and take each challenge of living as a call to action, rather than to feel pity for yourself or to feel that you are a victim of life. If you concentrate on finding solutions for your problems, you will feel more confident and stop blaming the circumstances.
  • Be Aware Of The Things Around You: It’s very useful to know why you feel certain feelings, especially when you hit major difficulties. Knowing the cause can help you concentrate on coming up with a viable solution. Keeping a journal, for instance, can be very helpful for introspection and allowing you to remain focused on finding an answer to your challenges.
  • Stay Optimist And With Good Humour: It may be hard to laugh when life hits you but if you keep a light heart and always look at the “full glass,” you will be able to pass through any crisis more quickly. Being optimistic can help protect you against stress and fear.
  • Take Control Of Your Life: Don’t let yourself be carried away by events in your life, even if they are most unpleasant. You must be aware that the strength to change things is only in your hands; your attitude to life.

Even if you are an emotional person and you find some events in your life extremely challenging and stressful, you can train yourself to become emotionally resilient. The training needs to be constant if you want the best results and a life with minimum stress.
