There are advantages and disadvantages to anything that happens in life. Some events will have more of one compared to the other but very rarely one will consist purely of only one and none of the other.
Even the garden fire we had last summer bought some advantages and benefits despite the unpleasant nature of the event. It's great to reap the positive side of it now although admittedly we would have preferred not to have undergone it in the first place.
