What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Something | Thought Catalog.
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger but it also makes us f-cking tired.
We promise ourselves we’re going to stop letting ourselves get hurt. We wrap ourselves in impenetrable cocoons, or we try to. But it doesn’t really work that way — as much as we want to become immune, become untouchable, we can’t be: the world still wants to play and we can’t really say no. We’re just as fragile and breakable as we’ve always been; we just have more layers on this time around.
We keep moving, because there’s not a whole lot else to do.
