Yes, we should surely learn from experience. Yes – everything happens for the good. Yes G-d had some positive reason for it to happen.
If this experience helped to become a better person fine.
If it helped him to become a bitter person – then they lost the message of G-d.
G-d wants his children to be happy. Some people have propelled themselves to heights through overcoming difficulty. Athletes. Business people. Musicians. Artists. Inventors. Scientists. People from all walks of life.
Other have become the complainers. The deniers of G-d. The haters. The abusers. The bullies. The hermits. The self-pity-ers. The naysayers and those with the negative attitudes towards life. They blog about the negativity of the world. They cast negative stereotypes on others – who are similar to those that made them suffer.
Suffering is a two edge sword. Some take it as a reason to look at the world with negative lenses. Some take it to cut the cake and eat it. Like it says – the pessimist sees the glass half-empty. The optimist drinks it.
You chose your attitude. “He made me sad” is not a reason – it is an excuse. You may not control what happens. But You control your attitude. And you can choose to be happy or bitter. It is in your hands.
Obviously each should seek help from others. Each should work on their self esteem. Each should take the time to learn from the suffering – to overcome it. To learn what good came out of it. And to look at the good in everything G-d sends.
That is the goal of suffering – to become better not bitter.

If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is equal to: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
H+A+R+D+W+O+R+K* =8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
L+U+C+K =12+21+3+11 = 47%
None of them makes 100%.* *Then what makes 100%?
Is it Money?
M+O+N+E+Y= 13+15+14+5+25 =72%
Every problem has a solution, only if we perhaps change our “ATTITUDE”…
A+T+T+I+T+U+D+E ;* 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
It is therefore OUR ATTITUDE towards Life and Work that makes OUR Life 100% Successful.
