Don't Worry. You'll Bounce Back!


I often hear people say to someone going through a difficult time: “Don’t worry. You’ll bounce back.”


Merriam-Webster defines the phrase “bounce back” as:


“to return quickly to a normal[emphasis mine] condition

after a difficult situation or event”


And there lies the problem. If I'm going through a difficult situation or event in my life… I DON’T want to return or “bounce back” to a NORMAL condition! I want to learn from that difficult event and if at all possible I want to avoid having to repeat it again!


I don’t want NORMAL.


I want to be BETTER than before.

I want to be STRONGER. WISER. MORE CAPABLE…. than before.

I want to be DIFFERENT than before.


But normal? Definitely not. I don’t want to bounce back.


I want to bounce FORWARD.

I want to bounce OVER.

I want to get past that difficult event and MOVE ON, rather than return to NORMAL.


If you’re going through a rough spell in your life, business, relationship, [insert your difficulty here], learn the lesson from it.


And. Uh. Don’t worry. You’ll bounce PAST IT!
