Have you heard this before?
You feel beaten down, things might not be quite as you imagined or you may have just been through a breakup and are heartbroken. You are struggling a bit and don’t quite know how to get through it, and you hear people tell you that time will help—it will get better after a bit… And so it does.
It’s tough when you’re actually in the middle of it all, though, and it’s also not easy to see while you’re in the thick of things that it will get better. Later, when you look back at the situation, you may see that you somehow became stronger from the experience, and that you learned something from it. [···]
