I judge you unfortunate because you have never lived through misfortune. You have passed through life without an oponent – no one can ever know what you are capable of, not even you.
You act like mortals in all that you fear, and like immortals in all that you desire.
You’ll face changes your entire life. When you encounter one that seems huge, remind yourself of all other challenges you conquered to get here. You faced mountains before – you’ll learn how to overcome this one as well.
Fear tends to come from ignorance. Once I knew what the problem was, it was just a problem, nothing to fear.
The truth is that the world is full of dragons, and none of us are as powerful or cool as we’d like to be. And that sucks. But when you’re confronted with that fact, you can either crawl into a hole and quit, or you can get out there, take off your shoes, and Bilbo it up.
You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way.
Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley.
Challenges Are What Make Life Interesting And Overcoming Them Is What Makes Life Meaningful.

I read somewhere… how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong, but to feel strong… to measure yourself at least once.
Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.
