Living with Cancer

When I was completing the Psychology and Mental Health course with Future Learn, I came across information about personality types.  And I think it explains a lot about the differences between people and how they cope with major issues.

It talked about Hardiness, a personality trait and those with it are better able to cope with stress related conditions.  Hardiness is made up of 3 characteristics: Control, Challenge and Commitment

People with the hardy personality feel they are in control of stressful situations and see it as an opportunity for growth rather than a threat.  They put 100% into whatever they do and do not give up easily.  I think that is me!
