Tough times don’t last, tough men do.
The saying’s supposed to make people who are suffering feel better.
Can I, however, opt to be a weak man and not go through the tough times?
How I wish I wouldn’t be given “opportunities to grow” — to go through no resistance at all, to enjoy life all the time without having any setbacks or tough times.
Give me an easy life any time; I do not wish to be any better than I am right now.
Give the pain to those seeking “opportunities to grow”, and leave me alone…
But it seems we’re all forced to grow as people, whether or not we want to or not.
