Toughness Is Not The Same As Wisdom

When faced with obstacles, we have 2 options. We can either close our hearts towards it or face the obstacle with courage even while being afraid. One is toughness, the other is wisdom. Read this blog to find out.

When faced with obstacles, it’s easy to close your heart
To become pessimistic about the world
To build a shield
And point out the worst before it may show up

Sometimes we wear this toughness like a badge of honor
Like we’ve grown up and been around the block

But toughness is not the same thing as wisdom

Toughness is closing your heart because you’re afraid of having it be broken
Wisdom is knowing that that’s possible and keeping it open anyway, because the only true heartbreak is not feeling

Toughness is being afraid of life’s surprises
Wisdom is knowing they are more beautiful than you could have ever planned for or comprehend, especially at the time

Toughness is putting on an armor to protect yourself
Wisdom is knowing you are already protected.
