Every one of us experiences a bad day once in a while. This is because we must encounter undesirable events, which we cannot control or avoid. Some of these events have dire financial, mental, physical, and psychological effects.
We cannot do anything to control what happens to us. But what we can do is change our attitude towards these circumstances. How we react to these events determines to a great extent how much they affect us. We must have a resilient mental attitude, so we can overcome challenges and push forward to success.
Resilience is the key to mental health. The ability to bounce back to your usual self after a negative experience, no matter how hard it could be, enables us to build ourselves and move on.
To gain mental and emotional resilience, learn to forgive yourself and others. Socialize with others to ease the healing process. Learn to take care of yourself.
When you face a rough patch, it is easy to give up and neglect yourself. You should, however, do the opposite and engage in activities that make you feel better about yourself.
Seek help. When you encounter problems, talk to a therapist. Therapists help you bounce back. Talking to a counselor helps you understand what you are going through.
Therapists also train you on how to cope with the challenges occasioned by negative events in your life.
