    Share a difficult situation you've been through and whether or not you think it was beneficial for you in the long run and why?
    I think it depends on the situation. Not everything will make you stronger. Just take the examples of those who've been tormented by child abuse - unfortunately they become weaker mentally and psychologically. But then of course you've also got people who've become tougher from living in dangerous situations. It goes both ways, it depends on the experience, the person, the person's environment and support, etc.

    That's why I said that whatever doesn't kill us reveals what we are.
    Some people rise to the occasion, others can't or won't.
    But the crucible burns away all the dross and we can finally clearly see what's left and then we have something to work with.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
