“I’ve been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought is could give me lemons!”
-The Lemon Speech, Portal 2
Yeah, it’s true. Sometimes life stinks a little bit, but there’s no reason to let it defeat you. These are 8 things you should remember when the going gets tough.
1. Pain is just part of growing.
Pain is something that helps us develop as people. Think about your past for a moment. If you hadn’t experienced some of the rougher parts of life, what kind of person would you be today?
I know in my case, if my past pains hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t be nearly as developed as a person as I am today. Strife builds our characters.
If we didn’t experience pain, we’d probably all be like Paris Hilton.
