Trial or Treasure?

Life’s trials are actually our great treasures that hone and strengthen us. If we can sincerely look at them that way, we’ll achieve immense growth.

But if we wallow in our sadness and become self-pitying, it’s quite possible that we’ll lose our footing and bring about our own downfall.
