Difficult Life Experiences

I quote from Ayya Khema:

Eventually we will find (mostly in retrospect, of course) that we can be very grateful to those people who have made life most difficult for us.

Never thought of looking at it from this point of view. Usually for those who made life difficult for you, the experience will leave a very big impression on you and as a result, you'll remember the details of that situation.

However, it depends on how you view the experience. It's what you can take away from that experience that makes you stronger and better. It's usually quite hard though to maintain a rational mind when you're thrust into a difficult situation.

If life is too difficult, it can and will backfire.
