When all of us suffer in life, it absolutely makes us stronger plus smarter as a result. It’s love that outdated saying, “What doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger”. I agree with that saying! It’s not as though anyone willingly chooses going through hard times or major challenges, but I would definitely say all of us deal some kind of intensive challenge in our lives. I really went through hard times when I got a divorce from my ex wife. Thankfully, I was able to get full custody of our child, but it was quite the battle in court and it cost me a great deal of money in lawyer fees. At the end of the day, I now had my son – it was all worth it! Without having to pay such ridiculous amounts of child support now, I have been able to get back on my feet with my son. I am also working as a Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C specialist, so I would often take my boy with me on repair calls around town. I used the opportunity to teach him some of the ways of heating and cooling repair and service. People absolutely loved the fact that I would bring my child with me and they would always offer him treats and other goodies. While I wasn’t a fan of him eating a bunch of sugary junk, I was glad that my boy was gaining something from joining me on all my repair cals. I wonder if my son will take after his father, and become a heating, ventilation and air conditioning specialist just as I was.
