7 Reasons Why You Are a Warrior
Warrior is not a title that is meant to be thrown around lightly. Warriors all over the globe and throughout time have been exalted and celebrated. To call yourself a warrior is to declare yourself as powerful, a defender of the weak, and a pillar of strength. A warrior can’t just be a warrior in name, however, because actions speak louder than words. The character Suzy Wong from Bad II the Bone is a towering example of this.
Cool Under Pressure
Shit happens. Better yet, shit’s gonna happen and no matter how many precautions we take into consideration, we can’t take everything into account. What’s important is not experiencing a total meltdown for every one of life's glitches. Let someone else have the mental break down while you take stock for a minute then swoop in like a knight all calm, cool and collected to slay the dragon.
Ready for Action
Are you the first person everyone calls when there’s trouble? Some of us are lightning rods for the problems of others but it is not unusual for people to turn to warriors and call upon their strength, whether it be physically, mentally, or emotionally. Warriors are movers and shakers, ready to pounce at any given moment. No opportunity goes unnoticed under her watchful gaze. Being the strong silent type has nothing to do with being gung-ho about what life throws at you. it's about being prepared even against things that go bump in the night.
Back on the horse
Failure is as much a part of life as taxes and sunrises. But the warrior who is knocked off her horse must find the strength to get back on. Life is a tumultuous thrill ride and there are absolutely no seatbelts. The warriors strength is defined by a “never give up” spirit and a can do attitude. Giddy-up!
Fighting the dishonorable and defending the innocent
Being a bitch has become a really popular movement. It’s almost a cultural revolution to be cruel and nasty to others, but it takes a warrior’s heart to step in and make sure that the weak are cared for and the dishonorable are put in their place. Even as Suzy helps to save London from a supernatural meltdown she still finds time for charity.
Admitting When You’re Wrong
“Whenever you're wrong, admit it; Whenever you're right, shut up.” - Ogden Nash
It is hard to admit when you’re wrong but the people who depend on you require it. Honor is deeply ingrained in any warrior’s code and part of that is knowing when you’ve messed up. Suzy has had her share of those moments in Bad II the Bone, but she keeps her sisters close and their relationship tight.
Know When to Ask for Help
Suzy is a powerful woman, but even she has her limitations and she knows it. That’s why she has come to love and depend on her sisters in her time of need. Often in the hustle and bustle of life we get caught up in trying to do everything on our own and then are confused when it (including ourselves) all falls down. Somethings just happen to take more than one pair of hands, and that’s okay, warriors are team players.
A Warrior is Compassionate
It’s easier to be big, bad and cold than it is to be big, bad and caring. It almost creates an oxymoron in the brains of many to think of a compassionate warrior, but if it were not for the compassion shared amongst the sisters, the world would be doomed. A warrior does not move for their own personal gain, but for the good of the whole.
