“I could take the beatings and the physical punishment, but it was the attempt to destroy your dignity, to make you a nonentity that was the hardest thing to bear. For one thing, you have to learn self-discipline if you are going to succeed. You have to have confidence in yourself and believe that no matter what you’re faced with, you can deal with it — that you just can’t give up. And then there’s the aspect of staying in shape. And humor helped a lot, even in the gravest times.“
Words from Captain Louis Zamperini, the Olympic runner who became an airman during World War II, who crashed into the Pacific, who was listed as dead after spending 47 days adrift in a life raft before being captured by the Japanese and enduring a brutal captivity for over 2 years.
Moral of the story: your daily shit ain’t that bad, get passed it, figure it out and don’t quit. #survival
