“Wow, that must have been really hard. I’m really sorry that happened to you.”

“Actually, that was probably one of the best things that ever happened to me. I’m so glad it happened when I was 18. It shaped the rest of my life.”

“May, just get on the roller coaster. Worry about throwing up later.”

Bad thing can force us to do what really matters

Bad things force us to reassess the things that are truly meaningful to us

Bad things can remind us of how lucky we are

Bad things can remind us of the goodness in people

Bad things can prevent even worse things from happening

Bad things can strengthen you

Bad things can result in serendipitous discoveries

Bad things can teach us how we want to love
