One thrives and survives under suffering and hardships,
and withers if left overly-protected and contented with current situation.
When Heaven is about to confer a great responsibility on man,
it will first fill his heart with suffering,
toil his sinews and bones,
exposes his body to hunger,
subjects him to extreme poverty.
confounds his journey with setbacks and troubles.
so as to stimulate his alertness, toughen his nature,
eventually bridging his incompetence gap and prepare him for the task.
For every hardships and adversities you are facing now, you should treat it as Life is preparing you for some larger responsibility that requires a more matured and upgraded version of you so as to not screw up later 😀
