Your strength

 What’s up, Nicki? You look so down.
Yeah. Well you know, I bombed my math test last week and I just can’t seem to get over it.
 A math test?  You’re bummed out about a math test? Not about your hair?  Or clothes?


What’s wrong with my hair?


Don’t pay attention to that Nicki, but you shouldn’t pay so much attention to your math test either.  I mean, yeah, it stinks to get a bad grade, but you shouldn’t let it get you so down for so long.

 I would never let a math test get me so down.


 Tell me something I don’t know, Taylor.


 Sounds like you should know a little bit more about resilience.


What’s that?



Resilience is your ability to bounce back from life’s ups and downs; it’s your ability to “deal” after something bad or difficult has happened.  It’s a skill, and for some people it’s a skill that comes very easily.  For others, it needs a little practice.  But for everyone, it’s a REALLY important skill to have and understand.  That’s why we’ve created this section.  To get you thinking about Resilience and to help you to bring a bit more Resilience into your life.


 I guess I should stick around for this one.  I’d really like to be able to bounce back a little bit better.


You should be more like me!  I never let grades upset me!


 There’s a big difference between being in denial and being resilient, Taylor.
