Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are. ~Arthur Golden
Isn’t that the truth?! We are at our most naked when adversity strikes. We have the opportunity to see what we’re made of, and suddenly we find we have abilities that we didn’t know we had. There are always valuable lessons in times of trouble. We learn who we are, and most important, what we’re capable of in terms of surviving.
I always try to see a bright side in desperate times. It’s not always easy, but as they say, there is a silver lining in every cloud. May you be able to always see yours.
How true this is and some people can rise above and survive while others become despondent. It is always best to see the positive-we need that
I’ve faced some adversity in my life that I didn’t think I could possibly overcome, but I got through it. I showed myself how strong I can be.
So true! Goes back to a favourite saying: “Whatever doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.” 😉
Yeah, I know how that can go. Getting through difficulties successfully can be an accomplishment that we can look back on and feel stronger for having made it through. I’ve been there a few times.
