Very true Miss Drew Barrymore.
Painful things can become our greatest strengths. If we can work through the painful times and figure out what we have learned from the pain we will certainly become stronger.
It isn’t easy to go through pain. My feeling though is if you face it head on and really deal with it the pain becomes less painful. It is when you wallow in the pain that it seems to engulf you and take over.
When a person uses their power (their inner strength) to face something, I think it can become strength.
