Good That Comes from the Bad~~Susie Austin

 “The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”

M. Scott Peck

 I think many good things come from bad or unhappy times and as much as we don’t like it, these times are a part of life. The key here is how to use these difficult times to grow and become better human beings. If we never had unhappy times we would never know the joy and happiness that comes along with the good.    

Think of a instance in your life when you have had such a moment, maybe the loss of a job, a failed relationship, a death the list could go on for a long time; however I think you understand the point. Do you remember being in a rut, a funk or just unhappy or depressed? How did you step out of it and how was your journey back?


These life lessons teach you character, compassion, and how to deal with life on life’s terms. It is through these hard or difficult times we learn how to appreciate the good ones and how to become better persons. If we had no difficulties we would never feel great joy.


Today I suggest embracing your life and accepting the difficult with the good and knowing life is always a learning process and quite possibly the difficult experiences today will help propel you and motivate you to move forward in a positive and productive manner.

  1. so true. dealing with life on life’s terms is incredibly difficult but quite valuable in the end! from my experience, getting out of the ruts and depressing times was impossible without God. but as soon as i took one step in a positive direction, things began to change. thanks for the encouragement.

  2. difficulties bring pain and despite of knowing they are temporary you will never wish that they come again
