"Going through difficult times leaves us with a lasting impression.
They alter us and change the way we view our lives.
We have learned who and what matters in our life, and undoubtedly we have a greater appreciation for them.
Surviving hardship gives us a broader perspective on what hardship is. You will look back on the things you use to complain about and be thankful they are your only worries.
After we have survived a difficult time, we are given a deep gratitude for our life."
