as the days war on, you grow stronger...

With a coffee in hand, I looked at a negative situation and made it a positive one. Every few months, you just have to have those times when life throws you a whole bunch of snowballs while your hands are tied and can't block the oncoming bombardment of winter violence. You got to take it. At the time, you're mad at the world. Want to grab it by your hands and just crush it, throwing the remains on the wet pavement, lighting a smoke and continue on your travels without looking back. It's natural. Everyone does it. When reality sets in, you think, well, you have past the worst part and the only thing you are is just that much stronger for surviving it. Whatever IT is. As the days war on, you look back and might shiver thinking back at the mistake you might have made or why you were in that specific situation. You try not to think about it. Try to erase it from your mental biography. But you can't. You start to tell people about the experience and treat it as just that. An experience. Something that you got through and taught you a lesson. Something that just made you stronger. Pardon the old saying, but it's true. What doesn't kill for hell does make you stronger. Strength used in a positive way. Used to help you progress and propel you to the next level is what is needed from anything that's negative in your life. Mourn, Get angry. Cry. Hit the wall. Slam doors. Whatever. Just know it'll pass and when everything is said and done, IT will get you in the next stage of your life. On a higher stage. The stages continue to get higher and bigger. The all mighty supernatural being that rules you and your soul will never give you anything that you can't handle. Be mentally well and progress.
