Ever wondered what it means to be strong

I suppose everyone imagines power in their own way. Power has several meanings. We know we are strong when we bring a heavy bag from the store, do some hard work, etc.

But we can also be strong when:

1. We do not tolerate the things and people that hurt our souls.

2. Take time for ourselves when we suffer.

3. We respect our emotions by allowing ourselves to express and feel them.

4. We ask for help when the burden on our shoulders becomes too heavy.

5. We give ourselves permission to meet our needs by setting boundaries.

I think I could list it because there are so many things we need to show our strength.

  1. I have not always considered myself strong, but in the last twenty years or so I have never thought of myself as anything but strong. I have learned from my experiences and grown. I live by my own rules .

  2. When my soul mate suddenly passed away in Latvia I had to sink or swim. So I had to gather enormous strength to get myself through those first tough days. And now on my own, I have to keep being strong because there is no one else to take care of me, but me.
