I’m sure you’ve heard of Johnny Cash. Like me the chances are you’re not a huge country & western fan but I do love the story telling that comes across in his songs – it’s always a bit of magic. A great example of this is “A Boy Named Sue“.
If you don’t know the tale, it’s about a boy who is named “Sue” by his father before he abandons the family. Perhaps take a moment to enjoy the storytelling in this clip…
HR is a boy named Sue
So if you know the song or paid attention to the clip, the reason the father named his son “Sue” was to help him become tough as there’d be no father figure to support the son. In a world that is “rough“, giving him that name meant he’d “have to get tough or die” and “it’s the name that helped to make you strong“.
A bit like the story, HR comes in for a regular beating for good and bad reasons. The name “HR” can become a burden at times.
It is what it is. Will you choose to become strong or die?
