At times, life can feel like an uphill battle. It can wear us down and leave us feeling depleted. However, these moments of difficulty and weariness are a natural part of the journey. Just like a bank account, life consists of deposits and withdrawals. The trials we face are simply withdrawals from our emotional reserves, while growth, love, and learning are the deposits that replenish our stores. While it may not always feel like it, these hardships are opportunities for growth and learning. It’s important to remember that these times will pass and that we can emerge stronger and more resilient on the other side.
