Do you agree with the saying "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger"?

I think that it largely depends on the person.

The person is you. The question is: do you agree with the saying "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger?"

Sorry - I was speaking generally
27th-Sep-2014 03:05 pm (UTC)
No need to apologize (but I probably should, since my comment comes across quite rude. Sorry about that!)

I moved from Germany to Canada and lost 100 pounds.
40 years apart, though. ;-)

Willkommen in Kanada eh!
28th-Sep-2014 02:52 am (UTC)
Dankeschön! :-)

Moved from USA to Finland (my parents moved back) - not my decision though since I was just 4 years old XD
27th-Sep-2014 03:02 pm (UTC)
do you love Finland? when and why did your parents move back, if I may ask?
28th-Sep-2014 09:37 am (UTC)
I do. :) They came back here about 1979. All the closest family were here, it was safer and getting a job wasn't hard.

"Moving to another planet" just demanded to be clicked.
27th-Sep-2014 06:22 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I knew the temptation to click it would be too much for someone. I'm glad you surrendered to your inner ET!

By "experiencing the loss of a close friend," I was thinking not literally death, but losing a friend due to that person's drug use and the implosion of their mental state, causing their personality to change significantly and them to turn unstable and mean. In that instance, it sure felt like the friend died because the friend we knew was gone. I've lost a few other friends along the way too.

I don't think that what doesn't kill you always makes you stronger. However, what doesn't kill you can certainly give you PTSD, wear you down, or burn you out.

What planet is this again, hee hee. That was a good one ;-)

I guess in general "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger", but sometimes being stronger sucks. The stronger you from being beaten down in life and able to better accept shitty circumstances that you once thought intolerable... that's a mixed blessing. A VERY mixed blessing.

Also, I'm reporting from the new planet I moved to. ;)

well I was never a drinking a lot of alcohol but when I became pregnant I stopped all drinks, beer wine etc. I am still breastfeeding nearly 2, 5 years later so i am still not drinking.

I think what doesnt kill you doesnt necesarily makes you stronger but it shapes who you are.s

I was made in Australia and born in the USA. Does that count?
