The Philosophy of: The Shins’ Simple Song (On adversity)

It’s not a stubborn strength that gets us through the tough times. Not showing a toughness and invisibility that allows those close to us to help us. It’s vulnerability.

I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
Don’t go thinking you gotta be tough, and bleed like a stone

The thing that truly connects us to one another is our vulnerability, not our strengths.
