True grit reminds me of that John Wayne movie
but we each face our share of rustlers and gun slingers
safer to deal with them in a more balanced way

It takes true grit to face our demons
what ever they may be
addictions, mental health or harmful emotions,
abusive relationships, greed, no work or ill health

We all have various afflictions
and deal with them in different ways
but our inner resilience is what truly sustains us

No need to resort to guns, anger or harsh words
didn’t work for the cowboys and has less respect now
so connect with your own resources and find a healthier way ..
