I think grit is a fundamental resource to survive. I have this theory called the “broken egg theory.”
I think this is true in life too. People who grow up without struggle never experience the joy of cracking the egg.
They go on, cracking the egg, live on a sort of constant life support, never establishing the deep independence and happiness that they could truly achieve.
I call it the broken-egg theory.
Sounds weird, I guess, but I always appreciate grit in people. I have deep appreciation for people who have had to crack their own egg and develop grit in the process.
Even those with silver spoons, suffer in the end.
