Famed pyschotherapist Carl Jung asked a friend,
“How are you going?”,
and the friend replied,
“Great – life is going really well!”
and Jung replied,
“What a pity!! Because it’s when you are really struggling with adversity, that you are growing the most!!”

So it might help you to remember, if you are going through a major transition period, (such as unemployment, divorce, illness, death of a loved one etc.), that there is seldom a victory without a struggle, and that out of the struggle will emerge a better “you”!!
