Find your emotional strength. Here are 5 things emotionally resilient people do

Emotional strength will help you through difficult times.

To feel happier, to communicate better, and to enhance your relationships, you need emotional resilience.

Studio 5 Relationship Contributor Dr. Matt Townsend shared five things emotionally resilient people do.


He explained that, “Resiliency is your emotional ability to handle and regulate through difficult times.”

Emotionally resilient people are those who can move through difficult times without wallowing or getting stuck in them. They have the emotional strength to breathe through curveballs and offenses and move on.

Five Things Emotionally Resilient People Do

Dr. Matt Townsend shared five things that emotionally resilient people do:

  1. Take 100% Ownership: Emotionally resilient people own their emotions, reactions, behaviors, and actions. They don’t try to control everything in the world, but they do take full ownership of themselves.
  2. See Fear and Change as Invitations to Grow: Fear and change are seen as opportunities to step into another space in life, to expand, and to do something harder.
  3. Focus Attention: Emotionally resilient people focus their energy on what they can influence rather than what concerns them.
  4. Communicate Clearly: They say what they mean and mean what they say. They don’t dance around communication.
  5. Joyfully Celebrate the Successes of Others: Emotionally resilient people celebrate the good in others, which puts out positive energy and motivates others.
