Quotes relating to this topic:

“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness.  We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.”  -Chuck Palahniuk

“Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.” -Proverbs 16:24

We may not enjoy going through difficult times in life, but sometimes it helps to remember that it is vital to experience struggle before we can learn and become better people. Tough times are also a way to wake us up and convince us to take notice of all the blessings that surround us. If you are going through a battle right now, just realize that it won’t last forever and once it is over you will come out of it learning something new for a better future. And if you see someone struggling in life think back to the hard times you’ve had and use this opportunity to reach out to them. Kind words and a thoughtful gesture is sometimes the greatest gift you could ever give.
