    WILLPOWER! Determination… motivation…

    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.

    To me it is an under-appreciated quality

    that takes time to see and truely recognise.... you never know someones true inner strenght until they have come through things and reflect..... it never ceases to astound me the strenght of the human spirit....

    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.

    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. ~

    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 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...
