Every bad thing that has ever happened to me has, in retrospect, after enough time, turned out to have been for my benefit, or at the very least, made me more of what I like about myself.

I know that I am extremely lucky in this manner.
I also know that this streak of luck could end right now.
And I know that most people have terrible things happen to them that never result in anything more than misery.
I also know that memory is frail and is too easily rewritten.
I know that the human mind is particularly bad at accurately remembering pain and misfortune.
I know that it's not actually possible to accurately know "what might have been".
I also know that when I was going though bad times, if most anyone had told me then "you will be glad this happened", I would have reacted with nothing but hatred and rage.

Still, right now, I am grateful, both for all my blessings, and for all my past misfortunes.
