Being weak doesn't mean you've had an easy life, and being strong doesn't mean you've had a hard one. But strong people never seem to me to have had an easy life, because there would be barely any mistakes to learn from or falls to pick yourself up from.
Oh how I love this. Girls were always extremely mean to me growing up. Now I almost cry every time my son steps onto his bus. I'm terrified for my children to have to endure mean people. And I hope they never have to. Be nice! Children learn by example.
