Whether or not things happen for a reason, they happen. We can choose to let them make us stronger. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” I feel it goes a bit deeper than that. I believe we allow it to make us stronger. I don’t think that strength just happens on its own. That choice comes from personal strength. We each have our own ideas of where that strength comes from, according to our own experiences. It’s there, whether or not you feel it.
