What we go through in life is what shapes us into who we are, and more often are we shaped by the hard times rather than the good. In order to live a fulfilled life we need the challenging steps as much (if not even more) as we need the easy ones.
Instead of working against your trials, embrace them. Acknowledge that you are facing them for a reason – to learn a lesson. Life is about learning lessons and growing as temporary human beings and as eternal souls.
