We also go through hard periods. We all have to face adversity and trials in our lives, whether it is not having a preferred job, working with a troublesome coworker, failing to get along with a manager, suffering emotionally, grappling with health conditions, or nursing a broken friendship. Often the challenges we go through are the result of the decisions we have made, and often they are the result of consequences outside our grasp entirely. No trial that we undergo or the suffering we feel should be lost regardless of the cause. Trials will teach us; if we want to accept them, they will build our character and help us develop courage, modesty, and strength.
