The Mayo Clinic shared an article titled "Resilience: Build Skills to Endure Hardship" and they ask:
"When something goes wrong, do you tend to bounce back or fall apart?
When you have resilience, you harness the inner strength that helps you rebound from a setback or challenge, such as a job loss, an illness, a disaster or a loved one's death. If you lack resilience, you might dwell on problems, feel victimized, become overwhelmed or turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as substance abuse, eating disorders or risky behaviors."
They define resilience as: "being able to adapt to life's misfortune and setbacks."
