“The bad times don’t go away just because times are good. We say these things build character; they make us who we are. And that’s true. But that doesn’t mean they don’t suck. It doesn’t mean that winter isn’t cold.”

-R. Eric Thomas, Here For It: Or How to Save Your Soul in America

    That’s a great quote Chelsea. It often annoys me when people say things will get better. They should just be honest and say this sucks.

      😀 Don’t worry. I’m okay with admitting the obvious.

    a good quote to remember; while it is nice to be optimisitc, that has to be balanced out with being realistic…

      I’ll admit I have a lot of the latter and too little of the former. 😀

    I guess it depends on the situation; in some cases, it may be better to be a realist; other times, it may be helpful to be an optimist…

      Thanks, Robbie. I’m definitely a realist.
