the pain of character
We all want what we want. And when we want it. And how we want it and where we want it and on and on…
The problem is, getting what we want does nothing to stretch, to develop, to form who we are.
It’s the struggles, the setbacks, the failures that mature and grow us.
Someone wishing to be strong gets no stronger.
It’s the tearing and rebuilding of your muscle fibers that makes you stronger.
And oftentimes, that can be painful.
But with time, you learn to enjoy the pain because you know the growth that comes from it.
And life is just like that. There’s pain, and as we are able to embrace it, our character is formed.
