What is Strength?

I spend so much time trying to represent strength because I’m afraid. I’m afraid of being vulnerable; that somehow vulnerability equates to weakness. But it doesn’t.

Strength also means being receptive, understanding that emotions are messy and complex. We’re human beings at the end of the day. We always make things harder than they need to be.

  1. Strength also represents the resilience of knowing when to ‘be strong’ and when its ok to be afraid. Because sometimes its ok to have that emotion. Not to let fear win ultimately of course, but to embrace the feelings they bring out. When you understand those feelings, true strength comes out.
