1 : to rise to a standing position 2 : to remain sound and intact under stress, attack, or close scrutiny
— stand up for : to defend against attack or criticism
— stand up to : to face boldly
Why so important to be able to stand up?Why do I feel less of a person for failing to achieve this simple task? Why when we are born can we not stand ? Does no longer mastering this skill make me feel vulnerable a return to that dependent state. And too we stand up to life’s challenges. We stand up for what is right, we stand by our friends. I may feel by failing to stand upright I lose ability to mentally stand but that is not so.
Old friend stand by me. Today stand tall.
