What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Is that true? I mean the majority of the time you get hurt you’re stuck at the bottom of a well. It can either turn out two ways. I can end up like the girl in ‘The Ring’ or the other one in ‘Scary Movie 3’ (I think it was 3 or 2… no it was 3).
These emotions we face are really head on. You can drown in them or make a joke out of it. It doesn’t make me stronger or weaker. I’m just evolving, slowly but surely. There are certain things we will hear throughout our lives that will still hurt us even if we’ve heard it a thousand times. Just because we don’t show it doesn’t mean we are hurting as much as we did the first time. Some can become static because they’ve heard it on repeat. That is what they’re left with a static emotion which is nothing. That is neither stronger or weaker.
There’s a huge difference between saying you’re fine and that you can handle something. To actually interpreting that within your actions. I mean that girl in the well in ‘The Ring’ climbed… wait no crawled through the TV screen and haunted people. That’s what your mind does, haunt you of those emotions and memories you try to compress. It will just climb or crawl and eventually lash right back.
So it may not kill me but I will eventually feel okay again. The stronger part will need more work. There’s only so many times you can laugh at the comedy version of things until even that gets old. I will be aware for next time, but not prepared, because as prepared as you think you are can be completely wrong.
