In brief: Vulnerabilities
I know people who have hard time sleeping when away from their normal bed.
Others sleep perfectly regardless. There are many factors involved in adjustment reactions. Sometimes it is not the individual, but the circumstance itself that makes adjustment difficult. Key thing is to use the opportunity to learn new skills for future situations. Never hurts to be more prepared for next time.

In brief: Differences
Everyone experiences stress differently, so whether or not a big life event causes adjustment disorder is highly individual.
It can have a lot to do with the situation, our overall coping skills, and the level of support we have. Adjustment disorders do not have a long duration, but if you are having a hard time, talking to a mental health professional is a great option.
