We’ve all been through difficult times—frustrating days or longer periods when life seems to offer nothing but heartbreak. Rarely in those crisis moments do we appreciate the lessons in perseverance, humility, and love that become available when life tests us to our limits. The hard times are hard. They also shape us into stronger, wiser adults.
To enter this week’s contest: If you could go back to a difficult time in your life, what advice or encouragement would you give to your younger self?
