    If it were to come instantly,

    how would we ever learn? The old lesson. Pain, hardship, and struggle forge growth, strength, and insight. Often only the harshest lessons force us to change when we are locked into a negative situation. Life is beautiful in all it's ups and downs. To be able to appreciate it on...

    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...
