‘Pain only makes us stronger.’ -Black Widow
When you push your muscles to the point of microtears and they recover, you can then lift heavier weights.
When life hands us tragedies and we somehow make it through, we uncover strengths and resilience we were unaware of hidden inside us.
When our soul is split open, the wound is where the light enters us as Rumi pointed out.
That which is difficult is that which develops us. We do not wish for the pain or heartache, the stress and uncertainty but we can use it to improve ourselves, to make us better for the future.
“That which does not kill me makes me stronger”, and we can all have an Incredible Hulk buried inside of us.
