They certainly do! This reminds me of another well-known quote, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” Very true, as these are the very times we tend to discover reservoirs of strength we never knew we possessed and use the opportunity to show what we’re made of. Everything we can take on, succeed in overcoming, and move forward from, all builds on the knowledge and experience we may need for our next challenge. So, the next time you’re battling through a tough situation, know that, in the end, it will make you even stronger than before so you are getting something positive from it, even if you’d rather not be experiencing it at all! Always a positive in the end!
