Simple Truths .. Thoughts on Strength
We each have a different kind of strength. Some of us are able to persevere against hopeless odds. Some are able to see light in a world of darkeness. Some are able to give selflessly with no thought of return, while others are able to bring a sense of importance into the hearts of those around them.
A person who can sit quietly at home and care for an ailing parent is as strong as a person who can climb a mountain. A person who can stand up for a principle is as strong as a person who can fend off an army. They simply have quieter, less dramatic kinds of strength.
True strength does not magnify other\'s weaknessess. It makes others stronger. If someone\'s strength makes others feel weaker, it is merely domination, and that is no strength at all.
Take care to find your own strength. Nurture it. Develop it. Share it with those around you. Let it be a light for those living in darkness.
