Running Vs. Resilience
Running vs. Resilience
In my decades of work with people, I have found that one of the greatest causes of turmoil is hiding, denying, or attempting to escape from a problem.
Sure running is a defense mechanism that can give us some temporary relief.
However, burying our head in the sand doesn’t make it go away.
Running away doesn’t make us more resilient.
Resilience means acknowledging a problem exists, facing it and the emotions that come with it head on, being accountable, and learning to accept and adapt by writing a new story that YOU control.
When you’ve done that work (as hard as it is), you having lasting growth and thriving.
Despite difficulty, that growth is your own and does not belong to the story or circumstances from which you came.
