Wednesday. Why there is always something? Why when you think things can’t get worse you get the ugly surprise that indeed things can not only get worse, but much, much worse. And you thought you had all you could handle and the idea of more crap coming your way is unbearable. And yet, it happens.

On the way you’ll meet a lot of people who will tell you: “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”. Don’t believe that shit. What doesn’t kill you, for sure debilitates you in a way that you won’t ever be the same. You’ll be just a shadow of who you used to be. And full of scars. At least, that’s what happens to me. I’m in no way stronger. I look like crap and the memories of the bad times threaten to haunt me forever. I wish I could forget but I’ve got a good memory. And don’t tell me I live in the past… because we both know that’s impossible.

Believe more in those who tell you other kind of crap, like: “You can do it”. Because that’s something that’s more likely to happen.

So, for all of you who are going through shitty times, all I can say is: “You can do it”… Don’t ask me how, just do it.

  1. โ€œWhat doesnโ€™t kill you, makes you strongerโ€. Drives me insane. All of the shitty platitudes that invalidate your feelings. I agree with the one in your last paragraph, but not many more

  5. My opinion on other people’s advice tends to be, “Seriously, don’t try to make it better, just recognize I’m not ok and deal with it.”

      You made me read this post again because I had NO IDEA what was it about.
      Yesterday I said that to a friend: “I tolerate all you crap and if I say something you don’t like, you don’t run away, you f#$king deal with it”. (But I’d love if someone tries to make it better, specially if they succeed ๐Ÿ™‚ )
