Welcome to the 3 Part Series on Resiliency
Part 2: Capacity to Recover Quickly
1. the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
2. the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.
Second of the three-part series – Capacity to Recover Quickly
I will challenge the notion that you have to recover quickly — but when you are ready — you will know. The steps below help to bring forth the ability for you to recover and move forward in your life. The tools that I hooked onto in the midst of my own healing.
So how do you unearth the CAPACITY TO RECOVER QUICKLY?
There is a distinct difference between ‘self-love’ and ‘self-compassion’. Kristin Neff explores more of what self-compassion is and I would encourage you to connect to what she has written.
Simply it’s showing up with grace, empathy, and kindness to YOURSELF. It’s choosing to be kind to yourself, in the way that you think and live. When I started to unearth an understanding of what self-compassion was, I started to show up for myself with a much kinder inner-dialogue. This also permeated out into my relationships, approach to work and judgment of myself & others.
Who can you speak to yourself with more compassion?
Who in your life would benefit from you choosing empathy over judgment?
How would being kinder to yourself impact your life?
Two: Proper Support
It is totally ok to reach out to the proper support if you feel that you need it. Perhaps it’s a referral to the doctor, psychologist, counselor, or trusted friend. Being in a space where you can ask for the support that you need is important.
This can also be you asking for more support at home from your partner, hiring in help to take the pressure off, or in our instance getting a dishwasher!
Whatever it is, don’t be afraid to ask for support / help.
This is one of my most favorite topics EVER to talk about. Thinking of your life in seasons will radically change how you live your life, plan your months, and what you accomplish in your days.
