How to manage adversity?
A great way to deal with adversity is understanding that it should not be taken at face value. The true meaning of adversity lies on the other side of the coin. Adversity can be viewed as a positive force that helps us grow and shapes us into better people.
Adversity is a good positive force
Adversity gives us room to overcome our past - in the most basic of terms, we all have a history, and that history has shaped who we are. But it is hard to be born with no challenges; everyone has a good story about the difficulties they've faced.
Adversity allows for the opportunity to improve oneself from any negative situation, so one could say adversity justifies itself through its positive effect on human beings.
How adversity helps us grow
Adversity allows us to learn from our mistakes. Part of the human condition is making errors, and it may be that without adversity, we would never learn to correct our mistakes.
Indeed, adversity allows us to take a closer look at ourselves and the things around us. It is through our own trials and tribulations that we can see what we need to improve.
Hardships are the catalyst for change. Without them, we would not be able to grow and mature as people.
Therefore, we should be grateful for the adversities that we face. Without them, there would be no way to evolve. It's truly one of life's best teachers.
A force of nature
Adversity is, to a degree, a force that drives human beings forward. It is in our genes to fight adversity. Us humans have evolved to fight the elements to survive. It's in our DNA.
It is through the process of adapting to adversity that we are able to achieve greater things. If there were no adversity in our lives, then life would be boring and mundane. We want adventure, excitement and novelty in our lives. We will face some obstacles during such pursuits.
Also, it is through the process of adapting to adversity that we become greater human beings. It makes us realize our true potential and how far along the path of self-actualization we have come. When we look back, we can savor all the great things we've achieved.
Recovering from an injury
One should not allow the injury or problems associated with it get bring us down. It's easy for things like an unfortunate accident to cause us pain and also emotional distress.
Recovering from an injury is can be one of the most challenging experiences to go through.
No matter the severity of the injury, broken foot, strained or ruptured tendons, sports injuries, car accidents, etc.—the one thing that will help us get through the situation is our mental resilience.
Luckily, today we live in an era in which medicine is better than it has ever been. We have tools and medicines that help us get better. Just imagine how, a few decades back, people died from polio. Now we've pretty much eradicated it.

The big picture
Aside from the personal advantages, there are also social benefits of adversity.
It's often seen that societies with more adversity have a stronger sense of community, solidarity, and accomplishments than those without.
For example, you can see this in communities that have suffered from, to name a few: natural disasters, economic downturns, pandemics, or social inequality.
In conclusion, I would say that adversity is perhaps one of the strongest factors in a persons identity; without it we may not have developed into who we are today. However this does not mean that hardship cannot be overcome and reduced where possible - there are always other options.
I can say that adversity is a force that drives human beings forward to greater and better things. It also makes us realize what our true potentials are.
