“Sometimes the strongest people are the ones who love beyond all faults,
cry behind closed doors,
and fight battles that no one knows about.”
Now I saw this quote and it really touched my heart. For so many of us have felt that we are so weak and do not even realize the strength that has developed within us because of the struggles that we have endured. As we overcome struggle after struggle, obstacle after obstacle, a resiliency develops within us that we don’t even realize… until we have to stand up and fight to overcome another obstacle.
Now resiliency is defined according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as “the ability to become strong, healthy, or successful again after something bad happens or the ability of something to return to its original shape after it has been pulled, stretched, pressed, bent, etc.” In other words, it is our ability to overcome traumas, tragedies, and the struggles of life and come back stronger, wiser, and more determined to overcome anything that we encounter. So again, “sometimes the strongest people are the ones who love beyond all faults, cry behind closed doors, and fight battles that no one knows about.” So just guess who that describes. You may feel like a victim… but you are stronger than you think. Be empowered today!
