I guess the good lessons earned are the positive outcome in every card, and you're right, as a pentacles card, it's all about materialism, and as a 5, is all about challenge and setback.

You're also right, this card is kind of a proof that true friends stay with you even when you're passing through a rough time!

That's true. In Spanish we have a saying that translates literally as "I throw myself to the floor just because I want to be picked up". So that's what this card may be talking about: victimization of the self to call for attention and help, in stead of dealing with the problem or realizing that the way out is easier than we think. And that's positive, because it means that the answer to our materialistic struggle is there, we just don't see it!

I don't see it as a positive card only within the larger scheme of things and in the 5P the wheel of fortune is usually at the bottom but it will turn again and we rise even higher at best.
