    I always think it's one of the most important attributes as we live in a pretty stressful World, you only need to look at the levels of mental health issues and suicide to see that life throws some shit at you.

    Personal life, family, health, work, finances... etc...

    I think people become a lot more resiliant the more they deal with as everything then starts to be put in perspective. Would you class yourself as a resiliant individual?

    When I was a kid in the 90s, they used to say wrestlers in the WWF were resilient.

    I thought they were saying that they were good, and saying they were Brazilian. Because Brazil were the best team at footy, like some kind of weird metaphor.
  8. Yes, I am usually able to compartmentalise things and only focus on them when I need to find a solution. I know others who spend their time worrying about all kinds of things that rarely if ever happen.
    Most of us have faced difficult personal challenges and I'm no different - coped so far though.

    I'm resiliant.

    Sometimes, even in the worst cases of adversity, it can bring out an inner strength in us, that we never knew we had.
    The more adversity I've faced, the more resiliant I've become.

    First hit is shrugged off second becomes irritating, third results in a 'fucks sake', then after the fourth or fifth I snap. That's when folk say 'Fucking hell, what brought that on?'

    Tried to shower with my dog for 5 nights in a row now but he keeps jumping out. Will try again tomorrow.
  15. I think I am.
    I’ve had some real “threat to life” scares with both my kids over the years and have come through it.
    Mind without my unbelievable Mrs by my side I don’t think either of us would’ve made it through.

    My motto now is, live for the day, hence the red wine im currently drinking

    I'm quite tough but even life gets to me sometimes, if things get tough I do Tai Chi and it gives me a massive turbo boost both physically and mentally.

    Not giving a fuck isn’t resilience like. It’s admirable but I’m sure the truly resilient ones battling all kinds of mental health issues would trade every time for that.

    I think everyone should learn not to give a fuck but its important to get the balance right.

    Massively. It doesn't come naturally though, have to work at it after learning how to.
