Our ability to bounce back from life’s setbacks is mostly determined by 3P’s:
Personalization- this is the tendency of blaming oneself for something negative that happens. Getting over the bump of personalization can help you not only to recover but thrive.
Pervasiveness-this is the tendency to feel that everything is awful. So much negative energy that makes one focus on faults. In order to bounce back, there is need to focus on ones blessings/gifts/abilities/achievements.
Permanence- the feeling that the sad moments will last indefinitely. Learning to accept ones feelings but recognize that they will not last forever and smile about it is a tool to bouncing back.
