I am strong
You need to commend yourself for having the strength to function under pressure. Unfortunately, we often bear the weight of our burdens alone, since we don't feel free to tell anyone about our struggles. So, whatever strides you have made, be they large or small, you have made them against the current.
I still find it difficult to view myself as a strong person. People always say to me that it takes a lot of strength to endure, survive, persevere......and not "buckle". Well, I'm trying to tell myself that daily, to little or no success. Maybe I'll work on believing myself more.
I am strong.
I am a strong person.
Feeling a little better already......let's hope it sticks.
