This post (answer) is 𝘳𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘥 to everyone. Because hard times and challenges comes in everyone's life in one way or another. So having this valuable spiritual insight on WHY they come and HOW to overcome the challenges can help you.
🌴With this response, i wanted to send this message, not only to the person who asked this question in Oct 2022, but to everyone reading this.
🌿We all get into situations in life, where we find our set of rules & values falls apart and doesn't work... You may call it "hard times" or rather "challenging times" but indeed they are our most precious gifts from God. Confuse not... As you read this message, this will get clear.
🌹With gyan (𝚜𝚙𝚒𝚛𝚒𝚝𝚞𝚊𝚕 𝚞𝚗𝚍𝚎𝚛𝚜𝚝𝚊𝚗𝚍𝚒𝚗𝚐) you could easily "forgive" others for their doings. And of that, you are proud. But the real challenge was to learn to live with them, isn't it? The real purpose of the stuggles of life, is to get out of them more evolved, more powerful than you ever was!
🌿You see now... that exactly is the purpose of our struggles. The "hard times" gives us an 𝚘𝚙𝚙𝚘𝚛𝚝𝚞𝚗𝚒𝚝𝚢 to LEARN and REVISE our way of living and thus to 𝚛𝚎-𝚌𝚛𝚎𝚊𝚝𝚎 our values, our life itself. In other words, challenges may give us temporary troubles and discomfort, but to the SOUL it gives a precious opportunity to grow!
➥ So in this case, a person was struggling to maintain good relationship with their spouse. And so they ask us to guide them on what should be done: 𝘚𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘵𝘳𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘮𝘢𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘢𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘱; 𝘰𝘳 𝘴𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘴𝘦𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘦? The below is our insight on this matter:
🌳I hope the first part is clear to you... So now, the question of whether you should stay around a person or people, who troubles you >> is a question of YOUR personal choice. That is: If you find yourself having the inner powers of "tolerance" and "power to adjust" and you wish to exercise these inner powers (and thereby increase/strengthen these powers) then by all means sustain the relationship with love and patience. And if you find and feel that actually "separation" can better heal the relationship, and you wish not to stay in the picture, then do separation.

On Material Success
As you understood already, material success can provide us comforts of live and can give us better things (house, car, resources, etc) that only makes our life more comfortable. But they are never the source of joy. And not to forget that all hard work we do, is to find that joy, that happiness, isn't it?
⭐The source of joy is spiritual. True joy is within... The 𝕤𝕠𝕦𝕣𝕔𝕖 is YOU the soul. Purity, Peace, Love & Joy are our original & eternal virtues! > 𝐋𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧: Original Virtues of Soul
🌺The entire point of 𝚜𝚙𝚒𝚛𝚒𝚝𝚞𝚊𝚕 𝚞𝚗𝚍𝚎𝚛𝚜𝚝𝚊𝚗𝚍𝚒𝚗𝚐 is that "YOU NEED NOTHING" as you have all that within you, what you seek outside. Yes that does not mean we do no karma (act)... but it means, we do not search for happiness in the outside world & in material possessions. By all means, buy everything you want, but have no attachment to them. That is to say: "𝘗𝘰𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘩𝘭𝘺 𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘤𝘦𝘴, 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘥𝘰 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘨𝘦𝘵 𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘣𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮"
🌻 Spirituality is so very simple and in the words of the Bhagavad Geeta: "𝙀𝙣𝙟𝙤𝙮 𝙀𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜. 𝘼𝙩𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙝 𝙩𝙤 𝙉𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜"

Bhakti (devotion) and Gyan (knowledge)
Know that "bhakti" or "worship" although it does make us feel peace & protection, and be faithful to God, but indeed it does not take us any closer to God than we are now. 𝚂𝚙𝚒𝚛𝚒𝚝𝚞𝚊𝚕 𝚞𝚗𝚍𝚎𝚛𝚜𝚝𝚊𝚗𝚍𝚒𝚗𝚐 (gyan) is the only way to God realisation, for it is the only way to "𝚜𝚎𝚕𝚏-𝚛𝚎𝚊𝚕𝚒𝚜𝚊𝚝𝚒𝚘𝚗" and knowing one's true self, one approaches to the universal truth, which GOD is.
✨"LOVE GOD... be GOD LOVING"✨
Do not fear him for God is Love itself and God is our eternal spiritual father. He will never bring us sorrow, but raise us above it. He comes to give us this knowledge, understanding and remembering Shiv baba alone refines the soul's intellect (buddhi). And when our intellect is refined and pure, we take better decisions/choices, and so our life is elevated. This is the 𝘥𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘦 𝘴𝘪𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘤𝘦𝘴𝘴 of how God comes and uplifts and liberates us children.

He is ready, always ready to help us. Only make a step in the direction you want to move.
🌸You see... All religions, without exception, in one way or another, preaches to fear god and to fear doing any disrespect of what is written in scriptures, as if God himself wrote it! But human beings hardly use common sense and intuition. This blind worship (blindfaith) in fact takes you away from God and his truest knowledge. Because God can be KNOWN, not touched. Knowing comes from questioning ... and the job of religions is to ban (dismiss) the questions.
