As a drill sergeant from basic once told me after dislocating my shoulder the first time, "Suck it up buttercup because you gotta embrace the suck". I've done my fair share of embracing the civilian suck for the past couple of months and keeping everything locked away never to utter a word.
Shit happens in life we may not want to deal with and may not want to ever happen. However instead of getting all pissy about shit and feeling sorry for myself all the damn time or wondering where I went wrong I instead have decided to embrace the civilian suck, pick myself up by my boot straps and carry on.
I'll survive this shit storm as well just like everything else that gets thrown my way. And I will come out the other side stronger and better because of these situations. And for everyone who took the liberty of kicking me while I'm down, I'm on my way back up and no one's going to like it because the storm you thought you knew is changing and changing for the better.
