We are all beautiful in our own way, we are all survivors, and have our own ways to cope with the numerous storms we face in life.
Yet, some people are simply stronger than others, independent, more resilient and prepared for various challenges in life.
Strong people are always the ones ready to encourage others to move on, not afraid to handle problems with a smile on the face, never surrendering without trying their best to change the direction of the events.
However, what we often forget is that we are all humans, so strong people can grow tired of everything just like everybody else.
The difference is that people do not expect it from them, and strong people often feel pressured and alone.
Being a hero is not always the most rewarding job in the world, and strong people need affection and love too. They need to be rescued as well, just like they rescue others all the time.
They have their own problems that can break them down.
Being strong for too long can make these people forget about their own needs, so they need a break to recover and regain control of their life.
Even the toughest person you know can get tired of being the one who saves the day all the time. Being a “shoulder for crying” for others and “just fine” whenever asked about their feelings can sometimes be a very heavy burden to carry.
This is not a sign of weakness, and it does not mean that you are not the strong person everyone believes you are. It is completely normal to be tired at times and to feel the need of love and care you offer to everyone around you.
Strong people do not have super-powers, so if you know one, give them the time they need to recharge their batteries.
Being strong is learned throughout the numerous difficulties in life, and if you have such a person nearby, make sure you show that they can always count on your support, attention, and love.
If you are a strong person yourself, remember that you should take proper care of yourself to be able to help others, so take your time and regain your strength whenever you feel like it. You deserve it.
