"will just make you stronger..."
I can't even begin to count the number of times I have heard my Mom tell me this; even worse I can't count the number of times I've used it on my kids! However the other day, I was talking to my Dad about a certain situation that has been a thorn in the side of our family for several years I caught myself using it on him. Then I really thought about it perhaps the real saying ought to be:
"What doesn't kill you instantly will add up over time and kill you eventually..."
But that doesn't sound nearly as nice. I'm the first to admit that I have been crazy blessed all my life but being crazy blessed doesn't make me immune to the little things that cause stress and all that stress can add up to ill health. Now I'm not just talking about the biggies like heart attacks, high blood pressure and strokes...I'm talking about mental health. The kind that causes you to think about and obsess about things that are out of your hands. We've all had something in our life that happened wa-a-a-ay back when someone wronged you or made you mad and even today when you think about it your blood boils. It's just not healthy to let someone or some situation have that kind of control and power over your life.
