After having a brief discussion about dating with a new friend of mine, he said “You seem like a really strong person.” Instantly reflecting on all of the moments where I felt weak in the last year, but yet very strong in identity and character, I responded “It depends. Everyone differs in what knocks them down or makes them weaker. I believe everyone is strong in SOME way or area.” We often like to measure and judge other people’s level of strength. We throw out adjectives like pathetic, spineless, cowardly, and fragile; forgetting times where we could be easily pegged as such. A breakup may be the end of the world for one person, and not a big deal to someone else. Having little money may turn one person’s hair gray, while another person doesn’t stress about it at all. Don’t be so quick to call someone weak; We’re all a little bit tough in our own way. It’s funny how the simplest things or conversations inspire a blog post, huh?
