If you feel angry when you hear, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger..."


Some people get really annoyed when they hear, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” If it’s taken as dismissive of you feeling beat down and discouraged, I totally get that. 

But...did it make you wiser? 

Is wisdom not strength? 

Did it make you more compassionate to anyone going through what you went through?

Is compassion not strength? 

Did it give you more confidence to realize you made it through something you never thought you could have made it through, or haven’t you realized yet how incredible it was that you made it?

Though the saying is cliche, and you may rather wish you hadn’t gone through it because it took so much time, energy, and sapped your motivation. But because of it, you became wiser, more compassionate, and more confident in your abilities. You are living proof. 

It didn’t "make you" stronger, but it did cause you to find and bring out strength you never knew you had in you.

You may never feel grateful for it, but please feel grateful for you. Celebrate your hard earned wisdom.
