Has anything bad ever happened to you that turned out to be for the best?

I've tried & tried to write about a bad experience that turned out for the best or enriched my life but I am finding it impossible. I am not glad or grateful for any of my bad experiences no matter what happened because of them.

I'm sure that some of my bad, hellish experiences led to something good but I would much rather have got to the good bits in my life without having to suffer the hell or misery I went through to get there.

Why should I belittle the bad times I suffered? because that wouldn't change anything or make me feel happier that those things happened it would only make others feel better.

To be honest I want the people who were in some way involved in my bad times to know I don't appreciate any of it. I want them to feel bad & guilty but not sad for me or to pity me.

I will make sure people know my life has changed for the better once I have gone through something. I will lie & act like my life is so much better just to save my own self respect but in reality I don't think the good things have happened because of the bad because that's just life.
In life there is a pendulum that swings between good & bad, highs & lows & we cannot do anything but go with the flow.

How about this... is learning from a bad experience and not making the same mistake (or coming near it) and warning a loved one away from making a mistake a good thing?
