Today’s thought…

Is being strong the ability to get up and dust yourself off and give it one more try when you feel like you can’t go on? Or is being strong finally admitting its over, letting go, and walking away for the last time?

  1. 100% both. But, I think strength being strong starts somewhere else — in speaking up, voicing what you need by knowing and trusting yourself to identify what is wrong and what you need to make it better. Then asking for it and finding ways to get it. Also from looking through another lens to see if you are giving what is needed to make it work. I am reflecting for myself here and the strength I think I need!

  2. I think being strong is doing what’s best for you in your situation. The scenario can change, but strength is about making the hard decisions that can be scary, but ultimately land you in state of greater awareness and wisdom.

  3. Being strong is holding onto who you are no matter what and letting go of what is keeping you from doing that. That’s my thought at least. Great sentiment–something to ponder for a while.

  4. I would say both. In the ttc world, we are often told how strong we are. I think a lot of being strong is carrying yourself through something that would break most people

    • That is what i thought as well for a long time. Now i am wondering if it takes more strength to give up on those dreams and move on with your life based on what you have and not what you dream of having (if that makes any sense). Realizing there is no problem ans being happy with what you have as opposed to trying again and again and again. This is a very diffifult thought for me right now so thanks for reading.

  5. I guess it would depend on the situation at hand.

    Happy holidays!
