Difficult experiences become valuable lessons in future life. Agree or not?


Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
Most experiences in our lives that seemed difficult at the time become valuable lessons for the future. Use reasons and specific examples to support your answer.



Life is full vicissitudes and always challenging and complicated.This also means that leading a good life seems not easy. People often have valuable lessons in the hard time of their lives. Therefore, It is agreed that the most experiences that were difficult at the time become necessary lesson for the rest of life.My essay will prove this with some strong reasons and examples.

First of all,I would insist that experience is the best teacher. While trying to deal with obstacles in life, people may discover many naked facts of life and they will use that experience in the next similar problems in the future. For example, a person who lost his father because of an accident would feel that he has lost something very important. During the initial period that would be a very hard time for him, but gradually he will learn to overcome the obstacles of his life by himself and that would make him a well mature person at very young age normally when others of his age would be just spending time in playing and studying. 

Secondly, people tend to remember things that put them in serious or difficult situations, thus those things will properly be in their minds for a long time and become valuable lessons. In fact, there are a lot of things that happen every day in our lives. Hence, if an event is not special or we easily handle with it, there will be nothing remained in our minds later. For example one puts trust in everybody very easily but if when he suffers from any cheating or fraud from somebody he will always be aware for next time.

Furthermore, only difficult experiences help people to understand their surrounding better. Actually, we cannot know a person completely in normal circumstances because people‘s true characteristics are often hidden in the profound depth of their minds. As an instance, when we are in trouble, those who are ready to help or at least share our bad time with us are our indeed friends. In that case, we can realize that not everyone we know is our friend and we will know how to sort out those difficult situations like that.

To sum up, I strongly believe that most of the valuable lessons in our lives come from difficult experiences for all of above reasons. People often say that failure is the mother of success and it is similar to that idea.
