why be afraid of difficulties, sufferings, and problems? When troubles come, try to understand the relevance of your sufferings. Adversity always presents opportunities for introspection. -A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Wings of Fire. I loved this quote from the book I feel like it resonates with me on so many levels. As per someone who has been always afraid of the 'bad times', the worst part is that you can never really forget that and we tend to relive that moment whenever we remember it. But at the end, we do need to realize that everything happens for a reason and i wouldn't change a single thing about it because all the good and bad experiences in my life have shaped me into the person that i am today.
