The hard times you’re going through right now certainly don’t feel like a gift.

Life is painful. You’re struggling. No one knows what you’re going through.

You’re barely able to gasp for air before another wave crashes down on top of you.

It seems like you’ve been in this situation for forever. When will it end?

When things are going well, it’s easy to have a good mindset.

But how you respond in the face of adversity is what really counts.

How you act, how you carry yourself, and the attitude you hold while going through hell defines who you are.

You will get through this. You will be stronger for it.

On the other side, you’ll have a story, and that story is the greatest gift of all.
