War can condition a person to be resilient, tolerant, dependable, strong, and capable of so much more than one who had experienced nothing of it; it can bring out the very best in us, but also the very worst. Where is it, I ask, the proper conduit through which a soldier should be raised from whence they would become an upstanding citizen of the world, instead of a single country?
If we change our station in life, people’s attitudes towards us may change. True, but the people who genuinely love us, care about us and want the best for us will be happy for our success.
I don't give up. That makes me incredibly resilient or maybe stupid or just plain stubborn. Whichever...
It's not the winning that teaches you how to be resilient. It's the setback. It's the loss.
