"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone.
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over cos you're gone"
I was riding in my daughter’s car, listening to the radio as we headed home the other day. I heard these words and remembered that this Kelly Clarkson song called “Stronger” came out last year when I thought the pain would really kill me. I never knew such pain was even possible.
But now I hear the words and I sing the words and feel them in my soul. The pain came close to killing me, but here I am. And I am stronger and I am a fighter – just like our fellow blogger Fighter and Survivor. She has been an inspiration to me. The lessons I’ve learned have been harsh, but I’m still here – just like Foolish Woman, who really isn’t foolish at all. I have learned so much from her! I am not just a number in a study on infidelity – I am more than that – just like More Than a Statistic. She is a woman worthy of praise! We are all here searching for answers and sharing with one another, like my friend Aaron whose blog is called Aaron’s Truth. And while I have often contemplated becoming Divorced and Angry, that man has taught me so much about Looking for Buddha Again – I often mention him as my wise old sage, LFBA. He isn’t old – the word old just goes so well with the words wise sage. And he most definitely is a wise sage. These blogs are all on my blogroll – you just have to click on their names to visit them. Every single blog on my blogroll has made a significant impact on my recovery and I feel blessed to have become part of this community. Thank you all.
