The moment will come when you will have to show what has made you like that

The moment will come when you will have to show what has made you like that.

You will not know what that moment is until it happens to you. Until you’re the center of everything, because of something that you did or didn’t do, because of something that’s within you and you cannot understand. They will try to kick you in the corner, and stone you with words, hurt you and put you down, but the trick is always in how powerful your psyche is, to either shut off or allow them to enter.

They will try to break your bones, bones that none of them strengthened until you realized it. And whatever mistakes you’ve made, they are yours, and each has its reason because each has its burden. They will try to give you these burdens even more and throw you into the abyss with them.

It will remind you of your failures and how they are the definition of you in every possible negative context. And they will try to take everything from you, wanting you to be empty and irrelevant, but they will never take away everything you made from yourself. And that’s your weapon. Use it as best as you can.
