Reflecting the Positives in Me – #AtoZchallenge – S is for…

I am Strong

I Am Strong!

A lot of people tell me how strong I am for dealing with the things I have to deal with and how I try to have this positive outlook on people and life. (If you don’t know my story, please read it here.) It has been a real struggle to accept that I am strong because, to me, when I break, when I cry, when I want to run away I feel weak. Asking for help has always been weak in my eyes. But I’m learning it’s really not. And I AM strong! Because when all is said and done, my track record for getting through those really rough times is still sitting at 100%. 😀

    You and I have that tiny inner voice that tries to keep us from asking for help. It takes a strong person to admit they need help with something. We’re better people for it.

    By the way, I have the same shirt!! :)

    You are so very strong, and I often find myself thinking of you when my life feels like shambles, because I know we have/are going through some very similar situations, and if you survived, then I certainly can. Even when I don’t want to >_<.

    I’m glad you are seeing your strength and embracing it! It is not weak to ask for help or to cry or feel overwhelmed. Those are normal feelings. What makes you strong is reaching out and finding ways to persevere and thrive. Nice pipes, too!

    Flex those biceps because you are strong. And it takes a strong person to recognize that there is strength in asking for help, not weakness.

    Heck YEAH! I must remember that still, quiet voice of strength when doubt tries to take over my ambitions, LOL.
