Assalaamu alaikum,

Subhan Allah, this is why we should say, "Alhamdu Lillah 'aala kulli haal" - praise/thank Allah for every condition.

Life is such a rich tapestry and all our experiences, good and bad, shape us and make us what we are. Probably the tests we have endured are the things that shape us the most -these are the things that remind us to be thankful and help us appreciate the good and they enable us to empathise with others when they are going through a rough patch.
