I'd like to Extinguish My Share of Hell
A bedouin asked the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam): “What extinguishes Hell's fires on the Day of Judgment?” The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied: “Patience in adversity and misfortunes.” [Related by Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal]
Each person has a place in Paradise and a place in Hell reserved for them. We earn with our deeds one of these places and forfeit the other.
Deal with the challenges and disappointments that come your way with patience: kindness, forgiveness and holding firmly to the guidance from Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). This will extinguish for you your share of Hell, inshaAllah.
