what constitutes strength?

One of the many definitions that society has for the word strength is “the power to resist strain or stress.” Is that not a different way of thinking about it. Strength is a power, something that we can harness.  Franklin D Roosevelt once said, “When you get to the end of your rope, tie a not and hold on.” It is like when we are at our emotional limit, we need to look at life and say, ” you hit like a bitch” and keep moving forward.
Here is an amazing quote to remember:
” Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
So, I come back to this idea of us coming together to help each other be positive.
