Regardless of who you are or what you do, adversity has touched you in one way or another. For many of us, it seems like we get more than our fair share of obstacles and road blocks thrown our way.
But take comfort in knowing this: adversity comes to those who are strong enough to endure it, those who have the withal to be pushed to their absolute limits (sometimes even further) coupled with the resilience to rise further and become stronger. Emnity strikes almost everyone, but the heaviest forms are hurled at those who are the strongest, who are the most tenacious, those who can endure and still smile until the bitter end.
Through it all, obstacles aren't thrown your way because you are weak - they come to remind you that you are not.
So keep on fighting.
