There are many ways to define strength, there are even more ways to identify that strength in your life.
Often times, you singularly focus on your strength when you are working your way through difficult events in life.
And, that’s certainly obvious. However, in your every day life, you exude strength. You simply have to take a closer look.
Strength is walking away from conversations that don’t serve you.
Strength is letting go of friendships that are not healthy.
Strength is following your heart when everyone else might say you are wrong.
Strength is admitting how you really feel instead of saying “I’m fine.”
Strength is crying when you need to instead of brushing everything off with a smile.
Strength is not retaliating when someone hurts you.
Strength is forgiving those that have hurt you, whether they feel bad about it or not.
Strength is communicating with others even when the conversations are difficult.
Strength is being honest about where you are in life.
Strength is saying “I can do this” in the face of fear.
Strength is sometimes simply getting out of bed.
Strength is focusing on your mental health.
Strength is having HOPE.
Strength is BELIEVING you are enough.
Strength is standing up for yourself when something is not good enough for you.
Strength is saying “enough is enough.”
Strength is not delaying all the things you want to do in your life.
Strength is reminding yourself, daily, how worthy you are.
There are many ways you can identify your strength. I hope that you can see all those things, because it doesn’t just exist within your trauma and pain. It exists within your life every single day. Don’t give your trauma and challenges all the power – YOU are the one fighting through that stuff. You are recognizing and believig your strength. YOU ARE DOING THAT!
YOU ARE STRONG
YOU ARE LOVED
YOU ARE WORTHY
YOU ARE ENOUGH
