THE ACTUAL MEANING OF STRENGTH!

As human beings, we all have the strength to face the challenges that we come across in life. But have we ever questioned ourselves what our true weaknesses and strengths are? Sometimes, when we fail to face the situation and succumb to the pressure, we think we are being strong. But in reality we are finding ways to protect/safeguard ourselves. This especially is applicable to sect of people who enable toxic behaviour of their close ones. When we do this, we might actually think we have become immune to others abusive behaviour, but what we are actually doing here is, protecting ourselves and choosing to be in our comfort zone instead of speaking up for ourselves, which is actually our “weakness”.

And also, when we keep venting out our frustration every now and then on our family members and expect them to be strong, in our eyes, we think that people who don’t accept our unreasonable behaviour are weak minded. But we will never muster the courage to actually question/introspect ourselves and closely observe our thought patterns. So the actual strength lies in introspecting ourselves instead of expecting others to be strong by putting up with our unreasonable behaviour.

But quite often, we associate strength with tolerating unreasonable behaviour, emotional abuse, manipulation, staying quiet and smiling through the tears. While smiling through the tears takes great amount of strength and courage, standing up for ourselves and speaking for what’s right is actually an epitome of strength and courage.

Again, it takes immense courage to delve into ourselves and sort out our thoughts,emotions and most importantly, face our Ego! The moment we decide to stop venting our frustration for smallest of the things just to constantly satisfy our ego and stop expecting others to tolerate our abusive behaviour, we become stronger from within.

Actual strength lies in Self awareness. Actual strength is when we refuse to become slave of our ego. Actual strength is when we decide to conduct ourselves in such a way that all the people around us feel good about themselves. Strength is when we decide to create healthy, positive and conducive atmosphere to all the people around us. Strength is when we decide to speak up for what’s right and take a strong initiative to break the unhealthy toxic patterns and become more compassionate and empathetic. Actual Strength lies in delving deeper and drop our toxic traits instead of expecting other to be strong by putting up with our nonsense. Strength is when we decide to watch other grow as individuals instead of trying to control or manipulate them.

Most of the times, what we consider strength in us, will actually be our weakness. Eg: Refusing to speak up for what’s right and choosing to stay in our comfort zone. Obtaining clarity on what our true strengths are and cultivating the habit of breaking toxic patterns and vicious cycle is very much essential for our growth and evolution.

Hope we all realise what our true strengths are and create a stronger, healthier and compassionate atmosphere wherever we go.

Love, light and peace to all.✨❤️🙏

DERIVE IMMENSE STRENGTH, COURAGE AND RESOURCEFULNESS FROM DEEP WITHIN!

There comes a time in life when we all feel lonely and zoned out. There have been times when we felt like we are all alone and nobody would understand our emotions and feelings. We can shrug this thought by saying it’s a common human tendency to feel this way at times. Now, feeling lonely and isolated may seem completely natural. But what really matters is the way how we are going to deal with such feelings — loneliness or to be more precise the feeling of not being understood by others.

Everyday thousands of thoughts cross our mind. When we pay attention to them closely we will come to know where these thoughts are coming from and we ultimately figure out a way to differentiate between useful and useless thoughts. In the process of doing so, we may find ourselves at the crossroads completely confused. We start to feel the world around us is bizarre! We might start feeling that all the things, people and the atmosphere that surrounds us is absurd and weird. And, that’s when we have to know it’s the time to “look within”.

When we have nowhere to go, and no one to look out for, we must always remember to look deep within- The core of our existence, the reservoir of purity, resourcefulness and Peace. Whenever we come across unpleasant circumstances in our lives, we must always remember to turn inward and derive immense courage and strength and ask our Higher self to help us guide through.

Once we start consciously cultivating the habit of deriving the energy, strength and courage from within, we become more aware of our true powers and start utilising them for the right purpose. This happens only when we realise how powerful our Higher self is!

Our Soul/Higher Self always guides us in the direction. So, instead of being driven by Ego we must always be willing to listen to our inner voice/ intuition and choose the right path.

It’s easier said than done, isn’t it? Most of the times we get so caught in our thoughts, thinking what’s right and what’s wrong that we forget to pause for a moment and just relax. When we take a minute to look within, no matter how confusing or unpleasant the situation seems, we still somehow manage to muster all the strength and courage within us and face the situation gracefully. Though most of the times, things may not go as smoothly/ peacefully we’d expect it to be, at the end of it we still feel relieved because our inner voice says that everything happened for a reason and a strong feeling arises that everything’s going to be just fine! Or at least we will know how to deal with the situations resourcefully.

So, just to give a gist of the whole article:

Always delve deeper and deeper and look within for peace, strength and courage. Believe in our intuition/Higher self and always have pure intention, constantly work on bettering ourselves and always wish the best for others🙏✨

I hope all of us find strength and courage within ourselves and emerge as stronger version of ourselves and try to make this world a healthier and peaceful place to live in❤️

If you find this article relatable and helpful, please feel free to share your experiences ( where you have dealt with unpleasant situations all by yourself) , and of course your thoughts and opinions. Would love to hear from y’all.

Love, peace and light to all beings❤️✨💫
