I feel that I personally identify with the “that which does not kill us makes us stronger” quote by Friedrich Nietszche. In my opinion, this quote means that all the problems people have to face and deal with in their lives help shape their personality. If you have to endure a certain hardship in your life you will usually become stronger and wiser from the experience. This quote makes me think of the word “fight” because I feel like it’s saying you have to fight and get through stressful and painful things in order to become stronger. I’ve had to deal with a few rough patches in my life and I’ve allowed the situations to make me stronger. Some people let the hard things in their lives negatively impact their life. I felt that this quote meant that if you got through this hard time in your life then you could get through anything. For instance, if someone had to deal with multiple deaths in their life and someone else hasn’t experienced that yet then the person who is somewhat “use” to it will have an easier time cooping with the loss compared to the person who hasn’t had to deal with it yet. Last year, I had to deal with both of my grandparents passing away within three months of each other. My grandma passed away three days before my 18th birthday and her funeral was on my birthday, which made it even harder for me. I tried to stay as positive and strong through it all. I’ve learned how to handle emotional situations better because of it and I’ve learned to stay positive. I’m not saying that I can easily deal with hard things but I definitely think that my past experiences have substantially helped me. If you’ve had to encounter something that was emotionally or physically life changing you’ll become more prepared for any situation in the future that is relatable to the one you already had to go through. We learn from all of our experiences whether they’re positive or negative, it helps mold the person we are.
