I kind of hate the saying “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”.
It doesn’t make you stronger from surviving, it scars you. The scars you see and feel each day are a constant reminder of whatever stupid shit got you into that situation in the first place.
All you can do is learn from it and move forward.
What makes you stronger is who you choose to have in your life as you move forward. That’s when you realize that the scars that were a terrible reminder become a story, a stepping stone from your past, that will continue to be there but now it hurts less.
Scars will heal, memories won’t, but that’s okay. You’ll be okay.
