Two Sides of a Coin
Every negative event, relationship, and circumstance holds within it, a lesson. The depth of the wisdom could not exist without it's counterpart, like the two sides to a coin.
Without the wisdom gained from the experience, the lesson will continue to repeat. Once the wisdom is learned, there is no further need for the experience, and it is released.
How can one know the amount of their courage, if not for facing a great fear? Is it possibile to realize how resilient you are in the absence of any trials? Without any poor treatment, would you truly know what it's like to forgive?
These experiences can be painful, sometimes so immensely painful that you are not even certain that you can make it through. Once you do, however, your foundation becomes more solid, your fears lessened, and your strength increased.
There is a major choice involved with each lesson. Do you choose to see the positive, or not? You will either go from naive to bitter if you don't, or naive to experienced if you do.
That choice is yours, and yours alone.
Once you decide to see the positive in any situation, you will be more prepared for anything unexpected. Everything, no matter how difficult, you'll know that there are lessons to be learned, and that you can make it through to the other side.
This realization will change your life forever.
