    I think I admire it because I don't have much

    of it myself. I carry a dwindling flame and admire the bonfire. I hope that the person I find in the future is strong enough for the both of us.

    I admire calm peaceful composure,

    grace under pressure. It is difficult to achieve, but I find it so cool. Emotional strength to deal with adversity in a compassionate way.

    Some people are strong.

    I know some or quite a few single women. My friends. I don't have married friends. These friends don't bother. Don't bother looking. Don't bother presenting their best sides. And yes, when looking you do present your better side or parts of your personas. I can understand it...

    I genuinely admire people

    who stay strong throughout everything, even when they have every right to break down, give up, just say f it. I want to be like that one day, it's just so amazing to me.

    Every time I see my friend,

    I can always see the conflict she faces from her anxiety. She's improving so much though, and I admire her so much for the progress she's making. She's been through so much yet she's still carrying on with the best attitude and is probably the most angelic person you could ever...

    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.

    I do admire inner strength.

    I really do. Probably because I know I don't have any. Maybe when I was younger I did, not anymore. I've lost all sense of strength in my life. For some reason when I was a little kid and something bad happened, I knew how to be strong. When my twin brother, Matt passed when we...

    Decisions

    ...I didn't choose my birth place, my parents, my race, my height, my intelligence, my eye color, my siblings, my body type, my inclinations, my influences--but I chose to be more than the surface, to transcend, to become, Great.

    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.

    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. ~
