I saw this on Pinterest and while I get what it's saying, it got me thinking.
Can't I be both? I want to be hard/tough enough to face whatever life throws my way and not break under pressure ... yet keep a soft heart that still hopes for the best, sees the good in people and life while keeping a positive attitude.
I don't want to lose what makes me ME.
Sometimes it's hard. REEEEALLLLLY hard. Sometimes just the slightest thing causes a crack and there's no holding back tears. It's in those moments where a choice has to be made - do you shake your fist at the sky with anger, wondering why the hell must you endure something so unfair OR do you cry, feel what you need to before taking a deep breath and going on.
Life's going to happen regardless and sometimes ... sometimes shitty things happen to good people. Sometimes we don't get the outcome we want - what we've dreamed for - what we desperately long for. It's a bitter pill to swallow.
But, we'll survive. We'll get through it.
We'll adjust and keep on going.
So, be an egg AND a potato. Actually ... just be you. You'll get through it. I'll get through it. What doesn't kill you, defines and refines you, right?
