Your best friend, resilience.
Resilience vs Perseverance
re·sil·ience (rəˈzilyəns/):the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.
per·se·ver·ance (/pərsəˈvirəns/): steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
Resilience. What is it? Why use such a big word when everyone just says perseverance? Well, resilience is worth saying. Resilience is to fight back. For example, winning a game after losing three. Or, getting back up after falling. It is a daily thing that people must to do actually be human. Perseverance is to want something so bad to keep going. To keep going even when times are horrible. For example, perseverance can be seen when a team is opposing an older team and still wins. Even though they seem exactly the same, these two differ in many ways. To begin with, perseverance is to overcome obstacles instead of failing, while resilience means to have already failed and having to get up. These two are also, very similar. Perseverance and resilience both require determination. Many people can walk away from problems and completely give up, but both of these adjectives take determination. Also, perseverance and resilience both involve a goal. For both of these words, they have an aim that they are going for or want desperately enough to keep going or get back up. Perseverance is a big part of finishing anything. Resilience is something everyone needs in case they are defeated or have lost. These both come in handy to many people in bad times. Resilience and perseverance are very similar as well as different.
