Don’t worry if you have a problem! This is easy to say if you don’t have one yourself, I know. But the only people who don’t have troubles are gathered in little neighborhoods. We call them cemeteries (坟墓).
If you’re breathing, you have difficulties. That’s how life is. But believe it or not, most of your problems may actually be good for you! Let me explain. Maybe you know about the Great Barrier Reef (大堡礁), running some 1800 miles from New Guinea (新几内亚) to Australia. Tour guides often take visitors to see the reef. On one tour, the guide was asked an interesting question. ―I notice that the lagoon (泻湖) side of the reef looks pale (苍白) and lifeless, while the ocean side is lively and colorful. Why is this?‖ The guide answered, ―The coral (珊瑚) around the lagoon side is in still water. With no challenge to its survival (生存), it dies early. The coral on the ocean side is always being tested by wind, waves and storms. It has to fight for its survival every day. As it is challenged and tested, it changes and grows healthy, it grows strong.‖ He added, ―That’s the way it is with every living thing.‖ That’s how it is with people. Challenged and tested, we come alive! Like coral by the sea, we grow. Physical problems make for a stronger body. Stress makes for a stronger mind. So, you have problems—no problem! Just tell yourself, ―There I grow again!‖ ( )26. From the beginning of the passage we know _______.
