English term or phrase: to be the less for sth
This is the time to acknowledge that life is comprised of spiralling growth experiences which peak and plummet, but when fully lived, lead ultimately to the good of all.
Those who shield themselves from the fullness of life with all its highs and lows, and those who never learn, adapt, adjust or change can be the less for this. (a book published in Australia)

tzn. wpisałem "be the less for" (koniecznie w cudzysłowie) i z fragmentów zdań dało się wydedukować, że takie właśnie jest znaczenie - co nie zawsze się udaje.
