You may break your heart, but men will still go on as before.
-Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
We must build ourselves up so that we may overcome our obstacles, those that are put in front of us, whether through individuals or situations.
We must build inner strength. From within, we can push through external forces that try to shift our balance.
We must stay true to ourselves.
If one can maintain truth in themselves and balance from within, then they can conquer what this world throws at them.
We must maintain this balance.
The world will continue, whether our heart and spirit is broken. Therefore, we must forge strength and maintain our balance.
