How can you tell the difference between a ball that’s full of air and one that isn’t? Well, one might look flat and one might look round. But sometimes, a ball looks as if it has plenty of air in it, but when you bounce it against the ground, it just stays there. A ball that was fully inflated would return to you. It would bounce back.

People have an amazing capacity to bounce back, too. Let’s say that something really terrible happens to you, and you’re depressed for a few days. If you just stayed in bed forever, you’d be like that sad, deflated ball on the ground. But hopefully you can find enough motivation to bounce back and get on with your life.

We can use bounce back for other objects, too. Jessica Simpson has had a baby, and her body doesn’t look as perfect as it did before. Her body hasn’t bounced back, or returned to its original state.

Can you remember a situation when you had to bounce back from a difficulty or challenge? How long did it take, and what did you do to help yourself bounce back?

“Usually I get A’s in math, but I got an F on my last test. Hopefully I’ll bounce back before the final.”

“We fight all the time, but we always manage to bounce back and be best friends again.”

It feels so good to be back on E!baby, and just in time for this wonderful lesson, too! Bouncing back is one of the most extraordinary things that we do, because it takes, not physical strenght, but will power. I can see that many of us here on E!baby have gone through hard times in life and bounced back. Be proud of yourselves, you guys. You bounced back “like a boss”.


I do hope I’ll be able to bounce back when hard times come to me. I know I will, because I have always believed that the sun is always brighter after the storm. ;)

If your mind believe you can bounce back, then you can acheive that.


In general: What your mind can conceive and beleive can achieve. Your mind can give the power to you to achieve your gaoles despite all your miss successes.

I remember that time when I went to the beach..I wouldn’t say that it was exactly a beach..it was more like..”God’s hell on earth!!!”..I don’t know what was I thinking!!!..and what made the matter worse that I took a little dip at 12 pm “midday”..by the end of the day I was a combination between a burned beef steak and Whoopi Goldberg..but thanks God that I bounced back to my original colour after a couple of days!!!

That’s what I need now.. I’m feeling so bad, I can’t do anything. If I won’t bounce back at an early date, I’ll keep falling and can’t stop it again.


I think I need someone’s help. This is an important point. But who will save me?.. I have to do it myself. I always do. And now I can, I hope…

I agree with Ngubo Sixtus, that there’s nothing makes us struggling for bouncing back as a good health. When you’re healhy, you just take it for granted indulging in all the bad habits but when something gets of normal functioning, you feel miserable and try to do your best to get it back, praying for the back normal days when you were healthy and full of energy to do lots of nice stuff!

I think you want to say:


I was depressed when I had a car accident, and I bounced back after fixing it. (or after it was fixed)

I would like about my school mate. We studied together three years and once everybody began to notice that our friend was changed. He became now aggressive now sad. All of us began to disturb for him. Sometime later we found out that he drugged. Everybody was shocked and very upset especially his family. We realized that we had to do something but nobody knew like what? We realized that only talks and prohibition didn’t help to cope with such terrible illness.


Luckily for us an Israeli doctor arrived to our country to therapy some patients with reliance on drugs. I saw TV plot about it and called on TV channel to ask to register my friend as future participant in that project. 


Fortune smiled upon us and our friend was invited in the project. He was detoxed, bounced back and got on with his life. Although after a few years he began to visit a religious sect but it was quite a different story…

It is very nice phrase “bounce back”. Life is always wobbling between good and bad. We have proverb saying that “the life is two days one for you and the other is on you”; therefore life is bouncing  itself.  A verse in Quran said “For indeed with hardship [will be] ease” (sura 94, Aya 5, Juz 30, page 596).

In 2001  our country was in a  economic turmoil , our saving accounts in dollars were confiscated and in return  the government  offered devaluated argentine  money. People were crazy  about the measures  implemented and i wasn´t an exemption . I must say that I got on with my life  again , yes, I bounced back  nicely, I am on the rebound again.

If l’m depressed for terrible reason in life ( such as disastrous,death of somebody and etc), it takes me a long time to forget, may be at least one week, then I try to pray so much or read QURAN for calming myself down, and when I’m sad for not important things, it is enough for me to go to bed and take a rest (specially night’s sleep)with meditating music, it makes me refresh and resets my brain and emotions, so I will bounce back to good mood and usual life for next day.

I think the ability to bounce back is a neccessity in achieving any kind of goal. When you go through some difficult situations, like fighting, like tragedy, like anything that keeps you thinking only about that disaster, you’re totally cannot focus, you’re derailed. It’s like life stopped for you, you’re not progressing, not doing anything towards achieving your goal. In this case, it’s better to bounce back quick, saying “life is going on”.


I usually got to bounce  back after an appointment to a dentist. Now I think, it will take me some time.
