365 Days of Hypochondria

What Resilience Looks Like (Day 116)


After a bad week, you can find me curled up in bed and surrounded by junk food, Netflix loaded on my laptop. (It’s moments like these that make me relieved that I am single.) It’s moments like these that remind me how resilient I can be.

Yes, these moments are indeed the epitome of resilience, at least in my mind. My highs are really high and my lows are really low and every time I find myself sitting in bed surrounded by Dorito’s, I am thankful that I didn’t decide to go through with something more self destructive.

Strength looks different to different people and regardless of all the mistakes I’ve made this week or the number of breakdowns I’ve had, if I’m sitting here typing this post, after yet another day, I am strong. No one could convince me otherwise.

What do you do to unwind after a bad week? What does resilience look like to you?

(Be honest) ;)

  1. It’s been my worst week in quite some time. I tend to unwind one of two ways, but somehow I did both this weekend. 1.) destroy everything. Meaning I tear the place apart, throw junk away, put it all back and organize. [not really a physically relaxing thing but does wonders for making my brain chill out]. or 2.) similar to your post, hide in my room, watch serials, binge on crap I bake or worse stuff, oversleep.
