The Adversity Advantage

Pain is only temporary. . . the benefits last forever.
Jack Canfield

You have to have faith that there is a reason you go through certain things. I can’t say I am glad to go through pain, but in a way one must, in order to gain courage and really feel joy.
Carol Burnett

Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity. Out of pain and problems have come the sweetest song, the most touching poems, the most gripping stories and inspiring lives.
Billy Graham

There is no normal life that is free of pain. It’s the very wrestling with our problems that can be the impetus for our growth.
Fred Rogers

The real irony is this: some of the happiest, most joy-filled people I know are people who have been through some of the worst pain in the world. I don’t know exactly why that happens, but this is my guess: once we’re no longer afraid to feel any feeling that comes our way, we really do become happy, joyous and free.
Melody Beattie
