Life is tough, well that’s an understatement. You’re not handed a manual at each stage of life which quite frankly would make it all a lot easier. Yes, there are lots of self-help books out there but as soon as they have gone to print they are out of date and there is a new way we should be doing things.
So we continue to bimble along trying to make the best of it. Then we screw up. Or someone else does and it affects you. The first argument with a loved one is a huge learning curve. The argument that leads to breaking up is life-altering in so many ways. We don’t get jobs we always wanted and we fail at marriages.
I always thought I was very meek, mild and timid. Wouldnt say boo to a goose and as for being strong enough to handle anything? Not a chance. But the funny thing is its not until you have to be tough and just get on with it do you realize what hidden strengths you actually have.
When life gets tough you will find all kinds of hidden strength reserves without yourself. You might not believe it at first but its there. And the more you have to go through the tougher you get.
