What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Sometimes I wonder if I want this to be true in my life. After going through some shitty times in the last year, most of which I brought upon myself, I've come to realize that this phrase is kind of true. I am stronger.
But I don't want this newfound strength to mean that I'll now be harsh or insensitive or unfazed by the things that happen around me. Pain sometimes does that to people. Sometimes I am "those people". I no longer want to be like "those people".
What doesn't kill me makes me...
more vulnerable (in new ways).
less vulnerable (to harmful things).
Happy Valentine's Day to all of you, whether you are in love with your husband, your wife, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your friends, your kids, your parents, your siblings, your nephews, your nieces, your parents, your dog, your fish, your cat, your pet iguana, whatever makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside, hehe. May you be shielded from feeling lonely or miserable or misunderstood. Better yet, may you find in your loneliness or your miserableness new truths about life, new lessons to be learned. May this day remind you of all that is good and wonderful and worth loving in this world.
What doesn't kill you makes you...wiser. I liked that one.
