it takes courage to say you can’t do it

It takes courage to admit that you can’t do it, that you have limits.

It takes courage to admit that you’re wrong.

It takes courage to do all this and still live happily after without thinking you’re a horrible person.

It takes courage to be upfront and honest and to admit your feelings.

We’ve been invaded by the image of strong characters in movies, people that fail but yet will prevail.
No one in the movies admit this. They do it always later, after the storm, after they’ve won.
They don’t do it during the struggle.

And guess what? It’s during the struggle that matters.

It’s admitting that you can’t do it and still fight for it that it’s hard.
It’s saying your limits, your issues, your feelings while life’s a shit, that’s hard.

While I write all this I can’t stop thinking that the words “saying your limits while life’s a shit” can be applied in 2 ways.

  1. you feel the struggle, you know it’s hard and you know that admitting publicly that you can’t do it will make you look like a shitty person, yet you do it.
  2. you want to be cuddled, you are self-pitying and want to have more attention and so you admit that life’s a shit.

What’s the difference?
One needs courage.
