Growing Pains

We all have to do things in our lives that we would rather not do. 

We cannot get our way all of the time. 

Nor would we likely be happier if we did. 

We need resistance to make us stronger. 

Friction helps to develop our character. 

Pressure forces us to grow in ways we otherwise would not. 

If we got what we wanted all of the time, life would be too easy. 

It would be boring. 

We would have no reason to grow, evolve, and change. 

Therefore, when challenges arise, when we come up against an obstacle, or when we face unexpected difficulties, we should ask ourselves how this will help us, what we will learn from this experience, and how we can use this to improve our character, our relationship, or our lives.
