"Some of our struggles involve making decisions,
while others are a result of the decisions we have made.
Some of our struggles result from choices others make that affect our lives.
We cannot always control everything that happens to us in this life,
but we can control how we respond.
Many struggles come as problems and pressures that sometimes cause pain.
Others come as temptations, trials, and tribulations."
