Mature adults have developed their coping skills and are not as reactive and stressful all the time as the young population, which are yet to understand steadfastness, resilience or the benefits of a calm mind.
When a person has successfully managed challenging situations, new problems are not reacted with panic as our past experiences give us strength and self-efficacy.
Right action comes when we take proactive steps to remedy a problematic situation, tapping into the things that are possible and can be controlled.
A person with underlying and invisible mental health issues is likely to get triggered by any event.
Like the straw that broke a camel’s back, a person’s current mindset and problems can project a new problem in a distorted way, making even a small event feel overwhelming. This leads to feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem.
Our personality and upbringing play a major role in how we handle a stressful situation.
First responders, firefighters and surgeons have different skill sets and mental strength, apart from the professional training that they have undergone, leading to better handling of pressure situations.
