Myth No 8: Building resilience is a one-off event.

There appears to be a belief that says ‘once resilient, always resilient’. In fact, the opposite is true. Authentic Resilience is something that you have to keep on working on – it is a daily practice. On some days and in certain situations our levels of resilience will feel higher than others. At other times they will be lower – but this doesn’t mean that your resilience has disappeared – it simply means that your circumstances, your health, your self- care practices and many other aspects of your life are asking you to notice what part of yourself or your life needs addressing. If your levels of resilience waiver and you have a patch of time where you feel more vulnerable than others it usually points to a needs within you or in your immediate environment that you are not paying attention to or taking care of.
