This is good! Sometimes it is said that hardships develop us, and that is true to a certain extent, but we must first survive and not make the circumstance worse than it initially was because we reacted badly. We respond properly to adversity when we have the perspective that we can and will work through the adversity, with God's help. We can then approach the hardship with a sense of pragmatism where we are in control and not the hardship. Hardships will display how our character has been developed to this point.
