It’s really hard to be strong. Really hard. Sometimes a client yells at you, or you get stuck in awful traffic. Maybe you get rained on walking your dog. You’re going through a breakup, or dealing with wondering why you’re still single after all this time. It’s hard. However, each and every one of you has everything you need to get through your current situation. You just have to believe in your inner strength. Hopefully these quotes will help. They’ve certainly helped me. Some even come from my favorite songs, so I’ve included links for those too. Nothing like pretending to be Christina Aguilera, belting empowering ballads in your car.
Sometimes, the strength you need it just to believe in yourself. Wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and believe in you and all that you are.
There are a lot of obstacles in life. They vary in severity, but each person fights their own battle. At the end of the day, don’t give up because it will be worth it in the end. Just remember that you’re working toward something.
This one is kind of sad but true. A lot of times, you find yourself feeling strong in numbers. However, you also have to be individually strong. It takes far more strength to stand up for yourself than to stand together in a crowd.
This is one of my favorite songs when I feel like I need to build myself up a bit. If you’ve never listened to “The Distance You Have Come”, I would definitely recommend it. Natalie Weiss does an incredible job in this song. You really feel her heart and soul put into each verse, and Scott Alan’s lyric are so empowering.
A lot of the difficulty in being strong is those times that you may fail. It’s hard to be rejected in any capacity, and try again the next day…love, job hunting, etc. Take the time that you need to wallow or mourn, but just remember to come back fighting.
I don’t think there’s anything more empowering than this. Each and every one of us was put on this planet for a very specific reason. Each reason is unique to us individually. You’re strong enough to face anything in front of you because God put you there.
It’s difficult to feel strong if you feel like you’re constantly being passed over. Like the previous quote, you are put on this earth for a divine purpose. Find your purpose, and become memorable for it.
Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to walk away from people that you thought would be in your life forever. It takes incredible strength to realize that you don’t need to change for anyone, and to believe in yourself.
This quote actually makes me a bit sad. I first saw it on a necklace at an antique/vendor market back home with my mom. I thought it was so powerful. After whatever happens, she still goes on. Upon further research, this quote is actually associated with Suicide Awareness. I still think it’s beautiful and should be empowering.
This one really speaks to me. So often, we get caught up in the worry of wondering what could go wrong instead of pushing forward and fighting for what we want.
Strength is one of the hardest traits to come by. Finding the drive within yourself to overcome obstacles and doubt…it’s daunting. I hope that you find quotes or people or other means of coping when you feel like you might not be strong enough.
