My pain is my teacher 161 People

    Perseverance...

    It may seem weird to thankful for pain, but without it I wouldn’t know how to persevere. Without challenge...struggle...loss, I wouldn’t know my own strength. If I was never down on my luck, I would never know how to rise above. It’s during times of adversity when we...

    Crying ?

    Pain and trials are only submitted to us in order to watch how our patience could be tested. If at first proof we begin to cry, no need to explain how the proof is lost. Better to have a bit set-back, a bit meditation and see the proof just as a schoolwork ! Best way to win in...
