life's trials are like being placed in boiling water...
There are people who, when put to test, turn soft like carrots. They lose their form. They..."give up".
The other type, on the other hand, when faced with trials turn tough - too tough - like hard-boiled eggs. They become angry. Bitter.
And then there's the best type. These people are like coffee, and when placed in boiling water, they turn...stronger. More delicious. Oh, and they smell better, too. ;)
Personally, I think I'm somewhere around the coffee-flavored egg / egg dipped in coffee range. There are times when trials make me better, but there are occasions when I just lose my temper...I forget how it is to be a daughter of God, and I just...I just become mean. =( So...yeah, work in progress at the moment, but I'm hoping with this realization, I'll gradually and eventually improve until I'm just like the coffee I love to drink.
