Tough, you think you've got the stuff
You're telling me and anyone
You're hard enough
You don't have to put up a fight
You don't have to always be right
Let me take some of the punches
For you tonight- Sometimes U Can't Make It On Your Own (U2)
We are always having to put up a tough front. Women and men alike. Because the weak gets bullied. It's tough to act tough sometimes when all you want to do is just drop dead and give up. How many of us can face a crisis with just a big gulp or a casual shrug? How many blows can a person take in one's life? The song struck me as a reminder that sometimes, it's OK to get a little help, it's OK to be weak sometimes, and that it's OK to ACCEPT help, or to have someone to 'take some of the punches' for you. You don't always have to be the tougher one.
