When I think of the many trials and challenges in my life, I can’t help but feel thankful. I see these many challenges as a true blessing. When I am given the opportunity to learn from my mistakes, I am more able to develop a centered and more rational mind. My growth as an individual through these trials has shaped who I am today. Though it be difficult, seeing the good that comes out of a bad situation can build a stronger, and more durable character.

It’s very hard sometimes to forgive, or even start to call hardship a blessing. Sometimes what we need is something sturdy in our life, like an anchor; something to hold onto, and keep us grounded. The hardest thing about hardship is not comparing myself to others. I always stop myself when I do this and think of a passage in Matthew 7: 1-2.
“Judge not, that ye be not judged.”
“For with that judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”

When I learn from my errors in life, I find that I am growing as a more rational thinking individual. It’s as if I am training my mind to handle these difficult moments, to go into crisis deterrent mode, and resolve many bad and uncompromising situations. I feel that I develop a stronger and more resilient sense of character and personality. My mind is more capable of reasoning skills and more rational thought.

The ability to learn and grow from bad events in my life has enabled me to correct my bad behavior. I am thankful to be given the chance to repair the damage I have caused, and learn from it, so I don’t make those mistakes again. While I don’t want to compare myself to others, I still feel very fortunate that I am fully capable of learning.

I feel that adversity has helped shape who I am today. When I make a mistake, I am thankful for the opportunity to repair the damage. I look at this ability to overcome hardship as a viable life skill. The ability to be a leader and make good choices is something I strive for. It also helps to shape an individual for independence.

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. (Psm 1: 1)
