A few thoughts on strength…
Do you realize that without tough times, without struggles, you wouldn’t have the chance to get stronger?
Now, don’t get me wrong.
I know it can be something hard to hear when you’re actually dealing with something truly devastating.
But in the end, if you have the right mental attitude, hardships can act as the stepping stones you need to attain higher levels, in the long term.
It is because of them that you’ll get stronger, not in spite of them.
So please, keep that in mind when you’re struggling.
And most importantly, keep going.
