The old saying “when life gives you lemons make lemonade” used to be so trite to me. It always seemed to be a pat answer from happy-go-lucky people who didn’t have a lot of pain in life. Now I see things differently.
I’ve learned this: opportunity comes from pain.
- We are able to readily understand the pain of others
- We mature
- We become stronger
- We are wiser
- We become thankful
- We may write a book or begin a support group to help others
These opportunities make something beautiful out of pain!
