“I believe that we’re here to be tested.  To have life lessons.  To enhance qualities of compassion, empathy and love.  To grow.  The only other choice is – if you don’t grow, you’re going to shrivel.  So there isn’t a choice, really.  You seek to grow, no matter what happens that may debilitate you.  It’s in you to keep growing, to keep rising and learning and surging forward”. 
Rosie Batty
