Adversity Is Cool and I Enjoy His Presence in My Life

My attempt at making hardship more tolerable for everyone.

Well, to be completely honest, Adversity ain’t that cool.

Most of the time he’s annoying and a nuisance.

He’s one of those super enlightening and interesting friends that are great to be with and can teach you an invaluable lesson every once-in-a-while.

But you gotta take the good with the bad.

He also has the capability to quickly ruin any party if he overstays his welcome — which is quite often.


It really boils down to your perception and tolerance of him and how you’re able to manage his presence and shenanigans. I guess you could call him an acquired taste.

But at the end of the day, Adversity really helped open my eyes and brought me and his cousins, Growth and Resilience, a lot closer together.

I guess you could say we all need a friend like Adversity in our lives.

He has much to teach us and is one of the only people who can intimately introduce us to his royal family consisting of Growth and Resiliency.


Oh Adversity, I’ll be the first to admit that I need you more than you need me.
