Flexibility is a behavioral trait which helps the person to accommodate the changes that situation or other people want of him and most often it’s a temporary affair…. For a particular situation. E.g. accepting your kids dressing style although you do not approve of the same or accommodating your friend’s choice of dishes in the restaurant . Resilience on the other hand is a deep instinct with which you can bounce back even when the toughest situations of life has pulled you down. The bigger the blow, the greater and stronger the force to spring up. For outstanding people, any downfall, failure or rejections in life is like fertilizer which stinks but gives them the nourishment to grow taller and sturdier. Often, my clients say that I am so flexible and try to accept things but people take undue advantage. My answer to them is that flexibility is good to the extent you do not become a doormat for everybody to step upon. Its vital to create your own boundary without having to justify anything to anybody, because if you have your self-worth intact, it will naturally emulate in your personality and people respect that.
