2) Your Best Strength Is Your Ability To Keep Going.

Morgan has always been one of my favorite Walking Dead characters because, in spite of everything he’s lost and everything he’s endured, he carries on and tries to help others do the same. In this week’s Fear, even though he saw what looked to be certain doom, he still wanted to keep going, keep trying to fight on, trying to find a means of stopping the warhead’s detonation.

Yes, he contemplated committing suicide, but Grace had to convince him to do it. The moment he heard baby Morgan crying, he stopped and went to find her. At the first opportunity to find an excuse to keep going, Morgan took it.

Human beings have an amazing capacity for resilience. There have been people who have faced the worst events in human history and not only lived to tell about it but went on to live prosperous lives long afterward.

I say this because it is this ability to keep going, even in the face of disaster, destruction, and despair, that will allow us to push through all of that and come out the other side of a zombie apocalypse.

As I was saying earlier, so long as we have the ability to stay ahead of the dead and believe that we can keep surviving, we can keep surviving. Half of surviving a zombie apocalypse is mental — realizing that you have the ability to keep going in spite of the situation and then set your mind to keep going. It may be one day at a time; it may be for a while, but once you’ve committed to survive, you’d be amazed at how much you can survive.
