We all experience pain in life. Heartache, grief, loss, disappointment, rejection. Suffering is a part of the human condition. When you're in the depths of it, it can be hard to see how you can ever recover from your deep pain. The idea that you might one day be grateful for your disappointment and hurt seems, unthinkable.
Yet, we always have a choice. Even in our pain we have a choice to make. We get to decide whether we will take the opportunity and grow, or whether we will let it consume us. Your pain may also be the thing that pushes you towards your greatest personal (& professional) breakthroughs.
