If your contract work involves an atmosphere of excess stress, frustration, and negative feelings, it’s easy to feel trapped. Working on contract for someone else doesn’t mean you are powerless and must accept the situation. It might seem impossible to get out from under a heavy atmosphere, but there are ways to alleviate it.
Think of resilience as similar to taking a rafting trip down a river. On a river, you might experience rapids, turns, slow water, and shallows. As in life, the changes you experience affect you differently along the way. While travelling the river, it helps to have knowledge about it and experience in dealing with it. Your journey should be guided by a plan, a strategy that you feel works well for you.
