    who have ever thought about suicide but changed your mind, major props to you. This life is one worth living, and we can make it through together. All it takes is a little bit of courage for great things to happen.

    The strength to not pity yourself,

    to learn from your mistakes, to not blame people for your own problems. The strength to keep it all in, and stay calm in difficult times. The strength to be able to let go, and say no. Laugh at your mistakes. Yeah, I appreciate it.

    We all face trials in our lives. We lose the ones we love. We deal with heartbreak and betrayal. Rejection from the one we love the most. Each day we can't make a sick child well is torture. We face uncertainty in this world we live in. We lose a friend when burned bridges can't...

    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. ~
