"Life is full of challenges, and we need to face it with courage and acceptance. Every day is a learning experience; and we become the person that we can be through the test of time—getting way ahead of adversities."
How do we deal with difficulties in life? In today's world, we are being confronted with several adversities that can be viewed as nuisance or blockages that prevents us from moving forward. Some would have rationalized this event as undeserving despite of being good.
Adversities come in different way; it could be a loss of loved ones, failed relationships, financial problems, even natural and man-made disasters and many others. How we interpret these things has something to do with our personal beliefs and values; and acknowledging it helps us to prepare ourselves better in taking the best actions in anticipation of future unexpected occurrence.
A BLESSING IN DISGUISE
Whether we like it or not, we will be facing adversities that teaches us valuable lessons, and challenges continue to arise until it is learned. Sometimes, we have to experience bad things to show up the best in us, and to teach us better ways to live and become more responsible with our lives.
It is through recognition of these blessings shall we experience the benefits thereafter. Some would tend to resist, but it is wiser to accept it with absolute faith and believing that blessings will come any moment in the future.
If sacrifice is one of the keys towards greater living; then, great things come when we endure and persevere through life's challenges. I believe that it is in hardship that we learn to grow up and become wiser. It only takes courage to rise up and face life with gratitude.
A VALUABLE LESSON
Adversity teaches us the value of humility, that life is not all about prosperity. Sometimes, we need to change ourselves for the better. It brings greater results by highlighting our personal responsibility and integrity.
If we observe closely every time we face adversity, it makes us stronger and more resilient. The moment we encounter the same problem, we already know how to deal with it; this time, we become wiser and emotionally intelligent.
We experience painful emotions, but eventually it will subside in due time; and we collect these pieces of painful circumstance, and learn to move forward from the emotions of grief and pain.
It is true that life presents tough challenges as lessons, and not to be viewed as hindrance. However, it depends on how we view adversity—can be either negative or positive. Repeated adversity would mean unlearned life lesson, and so it keeps on coming back until learned.
Life is full of challenges, and we need to face it with courage and acceptance. Every day is a learning experience and we become the person that we can be through the test of time—getting way ahead of adversities.
