Adversity, Are You Fighting It or Are You Fighting Through It?

We all face adversity at varying points in our lives, to varying degrees. Some face more adversity and obstacles than others, and we often ask “why me?” In facing adversities, we can even get buried by them shifting the course of our lives forever. The worst adversities I have experienced or seen others experience that can have the most profound effects are things like the loss of a child, a divorce, loss of a parent, dissolving a partnership, failing in leadership, a child making a bad mistake that changes their life, or a child or anyone on the receiving end of a bad decision by someone else that changes their lives forever.
