If you find yourself facing a problem in life,and it would be very surprising if you didn't,then can you also see the hidden gift within it?

I believe so. I had the most difficult job of my life once. I got shouted by my CEO for things I did and didn't do...in fact, I got shouted at every single day. I lasted only 8 months coz I thought situations would change. But it didn't. After more and more employees left, I realised it was my time. Then I got a job that gives me 25% more salary and better environment...and now I can help friends find jobs :o) I believe that the trauma I got in my previous job has helped me to appreciate my current more. And of course, I have been to 'hell'...what can be worst than that!!

I think so. It happens to me so many times to know that SOME unpleasant things are blessings in disguise. I was canned from my first job, changed careers and found out that the choice I made when I was backed in a corner is the same thing that will enhance my pay a bit. But not everything has a hidden gift. I think it depends on how you look at things for the most part.

Thanks for your comment Jackie-mmm.You've mentioned that some unpleasant things are blessings in disguise,would you agree that the term problems/unpleasant things, means issues that we are processing to get a better life experience?

If you are positive about the problem you are facing, you definitely shall see some hidden thing it it. I believe everything happens for a purpose. It is unfortunate that most of us do not see these hidden gifts, as you call them, because we are preoccupied by brooding and sulking over our predicaments.
