Collateral beauty is the beauty that seems impossible, but it can turn into a life lesson. For example, when you lose something or someone you love or worked hard for such as:

1. Death – losing loved ones
2. Job – retrenched
3. Divorce
4. Sickness/disabilities
5. Current situation, COVID-19 etc.

We sometimes lose hope and feel like it’s the end of the world. We forget about our goals and everything we’ve always wanted and fought for, and didn’t get because we think that it’s the end of the world. We think that we are useless, which is not true, we must notice the collateral beauty and think of the beauty of the things we actually have.

Tough times and challenges are not here to kill us and make us miserable. Tough times are here to make us strong and help us to become a better person.
