    1. Resilience is one’s capacity to cope with difficult situations. There are three main domains for resilience, physical, emotional, and mental. We might be more resilient in one domain than others.

    2. That is a skill to recover from catastrophic conditions and stay on the right track again. All humans face difficulties and strive to normalize everything but they have different abilities to do so.

    1. Failure brings strength and resilience. Resilient people learn from their failure, such as their vulnerabilities and mistakes. Over time, this circle of failure and learning from it, makes them a more resilient person in face of demanding circumstances.

      1. this circle of failure and learning from it, makes ➡ “make” because the subject is plural.
        makes them a more resilient person ➡ … them more resilient people because “person” should refer back to “them” which is a violation of “agreement” in grammar.
        in face of demanding circumstances ➡ In the face of demanding circumstances

    1. Developing resilience necessitates knowing our features at first. In fact, we should know our strengths and weak points. In doing so, we can realize which parts of our characters need any change.

    2. Self-reflection is the key to develop resilience in face of difficulties. But it also has roots in our desire to change and demands mental flexibility and mobility. If I am a person who avoids any form of change and I feel uncomfortable and insecure in facing new things and challenges, it means I am not willing to learn about myself and I wouldn’t be a resilient person.

    1. If we want to be more resilient, it needs us to be changed. Also, there are many qualities that need improvement. For instance, consistency, self confidence, problem-solving, resistance, etc.

    2. If you are a person capable of change, you are certainly a person who has certain goals and you are seeking new perspectives in your life. Each step you take to get closer to your goal, you face new challenges, you get stronger and you get more resilient, but the challenges become more demanding too. The fruits of facing all of difficulties that you overcome one by one, are you becoming a new person. The more demanding your goals are, the more joy you will find in achieving them.

    1. We are always talking about solidifying our features and they are all easy on paper. In details, we need to put all of the instructions into action, otherwise “wishes don’t wash dishes”. So, we should exercise persistence, resistance and the like so as to expand our skills.

    2. Resilient people like to challenge themselves and they are capable of substantial changes in interaction with unfamiliar or uncomfortable circumstances. People may think of a fast way to distance themselves from difficult situations, but resilient ones seek the best way to come out of hardships. Therefore, they are most likely to take action and make a change because they do not act passively. In other words, they see a value in facing difficulties, which is getting to know their strong and weak points and reacting properly.
