Tough is a word that few people truly understand.

Tough=grit. Tough people are never taken down by challenges. Suffering, for tough people, is endurable. The goal, however, is the objective.
Father: No more hanging around your pal Jimmy. He can't stop getting involved in fights and drugs! He 's no friend to you!

Son: He's my pal, a tough guy......

Father: No! It doesn't take much grit to throw a punch or smoke a joint, but it takes a hell of a lot to work yourself to death for a sociopathic boss and come at 2:00 a.m. every night without complaining! I'm the tough guy, I'm the one with grit!!!!!
