*Just like a vaccination, realize that a small amount of pain now can protect you from more pain/suffering in the future.
2) Did not complain/murmur during trials.
* Ask yourself: What can I learn? Or What can I change?
3) Sought greater help from God.
4) Learned to serve/think of others during trials.
5) Forgave others & didn’t pass the blame of the situation on them.
