You see her and to you, she is a strong and independent young woman who seems like she has no trouble on her mind. Like she has her whole life figured out. She is a warrior. A true inspiration.
You see her and you cannot believe how someone can have it all in life. It seems like everything she does is done easily because she has luck. As if the gods are on her side. As if the whole universe conspires to help her create her perfect life.
You see her and you judge her by her looks. By that bright smile on her face. By those sparkly eyes that shine with optimism. By her confidence, that screams loud.
The funny thing is, you don’t think about what’s underneath that exterior…
Yes, she is a strong and independent individual who knows how to take care of herself, but she wasn’t always that person. Her strength is a result of many challenges that she has been through. Many tests that life has put her through.
She is strong because she fearlessly faces every obstacle along the way. She is not afraid of life’s challenges because she knows that getting out of the comfort zone and changing are two most important factors for growth. She is strong because she is fearless in her pursuit of happiness.
She is strong because she persistently fights her insecurities every single day. She knows her fears, she is well aware of her insecurities, but she could never let them stop her from reaching her potential. She uses her weaknesses as a tool. She is strong because even though she cries and breaks down, she still somehow finds a way to lift herself up and learn from her experiences.
She is strong because she chooses to move forward, instead of t giving up. She fails, but each time she learns something new from her failures. Instead of being discouraged by them, she sees them as steppingstones. She is strong because even though she is exhausted from the journey, she doesn’t give up.
She is strong because she always speaks her mind regardless of what people have to say about that. Even when her voice is wobbly, and her emotions make her feel overwhelmed. Even when she hesitates about something. Even when her opinions are different than the opinions of others. She is strong because she is not afraid to show the world who she really is.
She is strong because she’s been through many things in life and she is still standing on her own feet. She’s survived many storms in life. She has been through hell and back. She has been down in the gutter. But somehow, she is still standing strong. And with each fight that she wins, she becomes even stronger.
