Nietzsche wrote “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger”
, ain’t it… satisfying?
In action movies, it’s a strong frowned eyebrows phrase, and then let’s go fight the evil evilness!
In a self-help book, it’s more like a hidden injunction. “You suffer? OK! But not too long, please! Now stand up and move forward”, you’ll heal, blah blah and triple blah.
In reality, what doesn’t kill you… leaves deep scars, lets you feel miserable for a long time, puts your game all puzzled down on the ground. You’re done, bawl a bit and all.
But, aaaaall right. Stand up. It did not kill you, right? One more scar, it’s charming. Weaker maybe, you’ll hide it. You’ll find a way, and will do your best. I hope so!
Amor Fati, because you have too.
