The ability to be hold things together when no one else is there to help,
The ability to know when to cry and release that pain and emotion,
The ability to say no when you need to and yes when you don’t want to,
The ability to know your own limits and then the power to push them,
The ability to never give up even when it seems you have nothing left.
To me strength means all of that and so much more.
Being strong is not something to take lightly; having such power is an amazing gift.
One gift that you should never let go of, one that you should carry with you throughout life.
Strength is the one thing that will never fail us; a strong mind and an even stronger heart are the best weapons in any battle that life throws at us.
Some may not see their inner strength while others may embrace it and accomplish great things with it.
But I believe that eventually we will all find that strength, that true inner strength that defines who we are.
I know I found mine and really it’s just up to you to search deep inside yourself and pull it out, use it to its potential and prove to yourself that you are a strong person.” —Gabrielle Travis (via guidetosurvive)
