Does anyone get through life without dealing with some kind of adversity? Of course not. Life happens to everyone.
When challenges come our way, we have a couple of choices. We can give in to them and let them keep us down. Or we can view them as an opportunity to grow and learn. Of course, the second choice, overcoming adversity, is the best option.
Stories in this category include interviews with individuals about overcoming adversity. Stories include those who have overcome addiction, attempted suicide, mental illness, physical and emotional abuse, and much more.
Why do we include a section on adversity on our site? Because it’s part of life. No one gets through life without facing trials of many kinds. Hearing how others overcame significant odds and what they learned from it offers hope and inspiration to others.
We encourage you to spend some time reading these inspiring stories.
