Supportive colleagues, family, friends and other social networks can act as a buffer against stress and help build resilience. Do you have people who;
Listen to you… allow you to talk?
You can let off steam with……allow you to offload?
Advise you…….help you to consider your options?
Confront you….challenge you to look at the situation in a different way?
Comfort you…..when you need support?
Give constructive feedback…..be honest with you?
