If you were to plan your life’s path, there is no doubt you would’ve steered clear of all the hell you went through. The reality is that some of those trials chiseled some of your better features.
Life comes with pain, and don’t let anyone ever try to blow sunshine up your ass and tell you otherwise. What matters is not trying to dodge every obstacle but using them to forge in you an impenetrable character of steel from which you’ll face every future adversity.
Life isn’t fair, and it won’t stop bringing you bad days. The only solution is to embrace the fire and let it shape you. Exploit the adversity for your own benefit.
We must act, and not react. If you want to be predictable, then react. If you want to be the example, then act in a way that is unmoved by the fiery trial.
The hotter the fire, the easier it is to shape the steel. The question becomes will you be shaped into a weapon of destruction or a tool for building? It all comes down to how you handle the flames. Metal up!
