Hear today’s Warm and Fuzzy here!
It’s been said, “what does not destroy me, makes me stronger.”
Tough times can make us stronger and wiser. Knowing this doesn’t really make tough times any easier, though-at least not while we’re going through them. But it’s worthwhile to remind ourselves often of this truth.
Of course, we get stronger not simply because we go through tough times, but because we call upon our best selves to find our way through them. We draw on our humor, patience, courage, and other qualities and, in doing so, learn the power of our inner resources.
I resolve that I will survive the difficult periods in my life. And after each one, I will be a stronger, more resilient person.
