Resilience: the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties toughness. Have you ever met an old bitter grump?
This person probably wasn’t always like this. They were probably betrayed at some point, cheated, talked about, endured struggles and lost loved ones.
Because of this they are bitter with life. That is who i do not want to be.
I want to be one of those old folks who tells the younger generations of the trying times I endured with a smile on my face. To give encouragement to those with pain in their eyes to stay hopeful and see the blessings in the midst of the fire.
It is far too easy to become bitter, and I spent a majority of my 20s feeling this consuming dark bitterness. Life is way too short. It’s too short to get mad at the waiter for messing up your order, or your significant other for flicking boogers on the carpet you just vacuumed. Life is too short to get stressed out when you get lost and miss the beauty around you in the process.
