Facing challenges makes you stronger

Challenges are a part of everyday life. They make us stronger and without them life becomes somewhat meaningless because we have nothing to compare the good times to.

These challenges come in many forms. For some, the challenge is doing well at school, for others it is getting to grips with financial worries.

But, regardless of the challenge, facing up to it is key. Doing so will make you feel like you can take care of yourself, it will also make you understand the value of what you have now.

Facing up to challenges and living through them give us the experiences that make up our life.

From the Editor

Thank you for your letter, Hiu-sze. Everybody goes through times when their lives seem hugely stressful, or their problems insurmountable.

But it's important to remember that, whatever the problem, there is almost always a solution.

Facing challenges is a way to push ourselves and see what we are capable of.

What's more, when we look back on tough times, we can be proud of how we dealt with the challenge and remind ourselves that life does get better.

And challenges aren't always unpleasant. Challenging yourself to score better on a test, run faster in a race or learn something new can be very enjoyable! Why not give yourself a fun challenge today?
