When circumstances or situations work against you, you face adversity. Refugees from war-torn countries encounter terrible adversity.
Adversity, a noun which has been part of the English language for over 800 years, comes from the Latin adversus, literally “turned against” and figuratively “hostile or unfavorable.” When things seem against you — circumstances or a stroke of bad luck — you are facing adversity. Sometimes people use a form of the phrase “turning adversity into opportunity.” This refers to the ability some people or companies have to take a bad situation and make it into a successful one.
Adversity 是一个名词，800 多年来一直是英语的一部分，来自拉丁语 adversus，字面意思是“反对”，比喻为“敌对或不利”。当事情看起来对你不利时——环境或运气不好——你正面临逆境。有时人们会使用“转危为机”这句话的一种形式。这指的是一些人或公司有能力把糟糕的情况变成成功的情况。
