No one is immune to the negative, discouraging, or “bad” that occurs, even if we chalk it up to perspective.
However, regardless of perspective, the choice we make when these events happen is what makes the difference.
It has been said, “When something bad happens you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.” Author Unknown
If difficulties define us, we tend to focus on the drudgery of life.
If difficulties destroy us, then life becomes little more than existence.
If difficulties strengthen us, we are better prepared to help others face the same challenges.
