Every obstacle we face is an opportunity for success.
If we see problems or setbacks only as opportunities for failures, then we are looking at them in the wrong light. Everyone has them, but how we view them will determine the outcome. When faced with a problem, see it as an opportunity to grow and develop, to become stronger and better equipped for tomorrow. Even though some issues we face are hurtful and scary at times, they are, nonetheless, opportunities.
The next time you face a problematic situation, step back and assess it. Begin to find solutions, or see the bigger picture. Think, I can either let this sideline me, or I can pick myself up and believe that this will work out for my good. That is how you deal with it in a productive and an honorable way.
Do not allow yourself to become hurt, or retaliate; but, instead, learn to rise above your feelings, and do the right thing. Doing this will introduce healing, or maybe reveal an answer. Problems can be opportunities for growth. They can develop our character and enable us to be successful.
How you view difficulties, and deal with them, will determine whether the situation makes you stronger and wiser, or resentful and bitter. It is your call.
Just a thought,
