Everybody experiences hard times, disappointment, loss, and change, and at some points in their lives, everyone also feels depressed, nervous, and agitated. However, developing resilience can assist you in keeping a positive view, reducing your dread of an unknown future, and surviving even the toughest moments.
Pain affects everyone equally. Even the most resilient individuals experience moments of utter hopelessness. There is no need to be ashamed about anything. In all of your turmoil and suffering, you are loved exactly where you are.
Recent events give the impression that the world is undergoing one crisis to another. In addition to a number of natural calamities, we have also seen a worldwide pandemic, significant adjustments to how we live our everyday lives, economic ambiguity, political unrest, and social unrest. Then there are the traumas that people experience personally, such the death of a loved one, failing health, unemployment, divorce, violent crime, or tragic accidents. This is a period of strife and upheaval that many of us have never experienced before.
While it can be challenging to see any positive outcomes from traumatic events, developing resilience can aid you in finding any benefits from the challenges you’ve encountered.
The mind is continually bombarded with various ideas, most of which are antagonistic or in conflict. The war of the mind is the confrontation between these opposing ideas (the internal discussions over which idea to choose).
While there is no way to completely escape suffering, hardship, or difficulty in life, there are techniques to ease the choppy waters and restore control. Resilience is the capacity to deal with the tragedy, loss, and change that have always been inescapable aspects of life, even before these remarkable times. Building resilience can make it easier for you to deal with stressful situations, adjust to life’s shifting events, and recover from adversity and sorrow.
Your view, health, and mood can all suffer from going through challenging times. You can experience a sense of hopelessness and stress and anxiety overload. You might be struggling to go on with your life, overcome by a plethora of unpleasant, conflicting feelings, or intensely grieving what you’ve lost. Even worse, you can think that you have no control over what happens next in your life and are helpless to stop it.
Everybody experiences sadness occasionally. Sadness can add interest to life because it is a common emotion. The majority of the time, sadness follows loss. Most of the time, we experience sadness when saying farewell to a loved one. When a close relationship ends or a loved one passes away, the pain is magnified.
Additionally, sadness increases our capacity for joy. Our appreciation of the mood is increased when our mood eventually shifts from melancholy to happy due to the sense of contrast.
Christ is engaged in the struggle with you, no matter how hopeless you may feel. Alongside you, he is sobbing, overcoming what seems impossible to bear, and bringing beauty out of even the most detestable ashes. While you are breathing, you have a reason to fight.
