Personal resilience is the human capacity to meet adversity, setbacks, and trauma, and then recover from them in order to live a full life.
Resilient people have the ability to sustain their energy levels under pressure, cope with changes and adapt. They develop and learn from setbacks, emerging stronger and wiser than before.
Emotional resilience is used to describe the ability of a person to adapt to stressful situations or a crisis. Resilient people tend to be able to take things in their stride and adapt to adversity without any long-term impact to them. People that are less resilient have a more difficult time with stress and crisis, sometimes resulting in lasting difficulties.
