Weekly Inspiration: Varying States (of Damage and Repair)

"You don't develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday.
You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity."
Epicurus
"He sings about the pain in loving someone that hurt him in the past, and when they wanted another chance, he wants assurance from them that he won't be hurt again. He's so hurt from before that he's trying to have control on his heart this time. In the end, he realizes that love is not about control or playing safe. It's about losing control and letting all your guards down to let someone into your heart. That that's the way of truly loving a person, so we have to take that chance and truly fall all the way. This song is beautiful. Takes time to learn the lesson though."

"The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places."
