We all have our own mountains in life (I mean psychologically, not physically, although that would be pretty cool!). These mountains are different for every person, and come in limitless forms. Challenges, failures, detours all from loss of a game, to loss of a limb, a disability, having to learn a new language, falling in and out of love, and recovering from a car accident. All different extremes, but good examples. Heck, even doing your homework on time can be a mountain - if you let it.
If these events have a general theme: they are hard. In the moment, in all honesty, one can say it "sucks", and it may be true that your general situation may really incredibly suck, try to look at it like climbing a mountain.
"Why does one climb a mountain?" Because (s)he can! For the challenge. Imagine if there were to failure in life, if everything was perfect. Technically you wouldn't be here, because you wouldn't need to see, because everything comes to you so you wouldn't need legs either, or learn to speak because like I just said, life is perfect and there are no challenges: it doesn't make sense, right? Challenges and failure is how we as humans learn, live and thrive. Failure can be our greatest asset. My favourite example besides mountains are trees.
I pose the question to you: Which tree is stronger:
From the entire idea of adapting, one would obviously say tree 2 is the stronger and more robust tree. Just replace the trees with people and you will see what I mean. Challenges and failure make us stronger, be grateful for it, and learn!
Best of luck with your "mountains", and trust me - even if you can't see them, they are there, because you are most likely a human reading this.
