I hope this comes out right because it’s kinda hard to say correctly. Nobody can see all the good sides of a bad situation except for the person that has to suffer through the event itself. Now, a lot of times they don’t see them either but you know those people. They’re the angry, depressed ones who rail at the universe. But the truth is, everything contains gifts. Opening our eyes and minds to the positive aspect of a negative situation is how we come to thrive as opposed to just survive.

It’s also one of the best gifts we can give our children. That of being able to see past the bad in life.
