In some circumstances of difficulty it is amazing to see how some succeed greatly when arising against a challenge while others seem to get discouraged and shut down completely in the face of adversity.
Those who are able to succeed greatly in the face of stressful turmoil are those who are strong. Whether it be mental, physical, spiritual, or a good mix of all three, when someone has great strength it shows in the way that they handle themselves in different situations in their everyday lives.
Being strong is a trait that takes time and effort to achieve, but with much hard work, dedication, and determination, being strong all around is definitely something that anyone is capable of.
One main component of being strong is getting yourself to realize that periods of pain won’t last forever and that whatever situation you may be going through in your present, will only make you stronger in the future ...
"Being strong does not mean avoiding the truth. It means accepting it, learning about it, and dealing with it head on."
"It is the nature of the strong heart, that like the palm tree it strives ever upwards when it is most burdened."
