Applauding Adversity


I Write Her

I say defiantly success.png


Uttered with recalcitrant anger through gritted teeth; words forcefully arising out of my clenched mouth.

I’ve not let my life, situations, people or anything end me. Yet.

I grant a thank you, of sorts, to the pain played out by substandard friends, broken relationships, betrayals, nature’s force and every disturbing event determined to pierce me in my psyche.

It’s a necessary process, albeit grueling and inconvenient.

Enduring hardships becomes my opportunity to best myself.

I welcome the growth, but I do despise the adversity.

There’s no escape from struggles, or hurt and pain.

The victory gives me just enough strength for the next battle.

  1. Yay! That is an attitude more need to cultivate. Growth is hard and so is adversity but I have to agree that it molds us into better and stronger people. Hope the growth process isn’t wearing you down.

    1. I think that’s why they called it “old age”. Parts of you just keep breaking down. 😉 But no, I feel like my mind and essence are better for what I’ve been through. 🙂 Thanks, Val!
