It’s during times of great challenges that we tend to reflect on life… where we are, where we’re going, or what do we want our life to mean? Although these challenging times can be difficult to endure, going through them is sometimes necessary to induce personal growth.
Whether or not you get something positive out of these experiences will depend on how you react to them. The struggles you face can either destroy you mentally causing you to just give up on any hope of creating the life you want to experience or it can make you strong, enough to overcome anything else life can throw at you.
Some people face more difficulties by the time they are 18 than most people do their entire lives. While many simply give up, some decide to stand strong and use their struggles to become mentally stronger and work even harder on their dreams.
