I Admire Inner Strength

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,174 People

    Outer strength, while it has its place,

    is destructive by nature, while inner strength is constructive. Never forget that inner strength is a light, while chaos is shadow. Shadow cannot exist without light, but light needs no shadow to shine. ~

    Hi, I am supposed to give an inspirational

    speech this weekend. Any suggestions about topic? I thought I will speak about my friend, who survived domestic violence, because personnel experience can connect well with audience

    Don't forget that you're human.

    It's okay to have a melt down. Just don't unpack and live there. Cry it out and refocus on where you are headed.

    Flawed.

    I am quite tenacious. I am a strong woman. But there are times...when i just feel so weakened. Like now. I am a human being... I suppose I cannot be a pillar all the time. Shhhh. Don't tell anyone. Our secret, okay?

    Seeing someone have the strength to push past a

    rough point in the their life gives me strength to do the same. Even when everything is going against you, even when everything is tainted by bad memories and painful emotions. There's always a brighter side.

    I honestly admire inner strength.

    To see people with a spark inside them just makes me admire them more. To know that they would have something in them, even for the hardest of decisions, is very inspiring.

    Stand up for what you believe in.

    Even if it means standing alone. I've been through so much **** in the short years of my life. I don't let it tear me down though. I rise above it and fight back. I'm stronger than I may appear. I'm proud of who I've become. I'm also a work in progress.
