I chose the following quote "That which does not kill us makes us stronger" -Friedrich Nietzsche because it demonstrates how the struggles through life are sometimes difficult but in the end we become a stronger and more wise of a person. This quote speaks to me because of a time I went through in junior high made me become who I am today. I was in seventh grade and I was walking to my next class and then I realized I was a little late. I looked around and saw there was no one in the area except for a few guys walking towards me. I get a little nervous and I realize the situation was about to go wrong. They circled around me and asked me what was in my book bag like I had something valuable in it but I did not. I said nothing and that I'm just trying to get to class. Eventually they start to push me around and start becoming aggressive, I feel a fist hit my face and I fall to the ground, 2 guys pick me up and one just start whaling on me. Eventually they stopped and then ran away. As I got up and tried to clean myself off I thought to myself that I couldn't speak of any of this to no one except my mom because running to the principle about the situation made me become more afraid about the guys that jumped me. I still to this day wish I would've done something instead of standing there and taking the beating. So after that event, I promised myself that I would never go down without a fight.
After the promise I made to myself, I held that promise through every situation I went through. That event has made me stronger not just in strength but also in mentality. There hasn't been a time where someone has talked down to me or tried to push me around without me pushing them back or saying something and standing up for myself. "That which does not kill us makes us stronger".
