Give me anything in the world and if I had the opportunity I would flee from my current circumstances. The fact that I have not implies nothing, except that I have neither the means nor the opportunity to do so. I never will.
So in this context, what constitutes strength?
- Is it making the ‘best of’ a miserable situation and finding the little things to make a happy life?
- Is it forming the unrealistic expectation and hoping circumstances change?
- Is it trying to find a way out hoping that a ‘better situation’ can be found?
This also takes away the last two questions: there won’t be any changes and better circumstances will not be found. So all that is left is to remain stoic.
This is the reason why I am highly opinionated. When I am required to sit down and cop my misfortune on the chin for every minute, of every hour, of every day, I refuse to do so in any other aspect of my life.
Perhaps that is what strength means?
