“Everything that happens to you makes you stronger” isn’t quite true.
The saying “Everything that happens to you makes you stronger” (or “That which does not kill us makes us stronger”) is not really accurate. It is what you choose to learn from everything that makes you the person you are today.
Every situation presents us with a choice: what will you do with this?
- Will you learn from this experience, as difficult as it may be, to grow and become a better & stronger person?
– or –
- Will you assume the victim role, become bitter, and forever blame everyone & everything around you for your life?
Everyone is tested; not everyone learns.
