That depends on the nature of the hardship. If its terminal cancer then no- it does not make you stronger. If its feeling a bit sore after a weightlifting session- maybe it will.

The general principle seems to be

" What doesn't KILL you makes you stronger "

However 'general principles always seem to have need of a foot note or three so I'd add

" IF you LEARN from your hardships AND don't keep on REPEATING the same causal errors THEN a person probab;ly becomes both stronger AND wiser!

And, generalities always have exceptions ... some people seem unable to learn from their experiences !

cheers

That is exactly how it works, but yes as life tempers u do get more resilient after a while, but the shock stays enormous, and it takes a while to first overcome that, before u can realy think over the situation, and handle the loose threads left after.
I react immediately, but the shock only hits after.
