Stay strong. One of those catch phrases we often see on mugs. But..
what if it’s more than that? What if it’s a mantra to remind ourselves we ARE strong. Even when life seems to want to push us down, shove us in a corner, until we feel compelled to hide in our cave until it’s safe again?
You ARE strong. Even when others sow doubt in our minds. Make us think we are wrong, that there is something wrong with who we are.
Not in words. But in belief in yourself. In knowing you have the right to be who you are. Shed the negativity, let it slide off you like a summer rain. Don’t let that negativity control you, change you.
You CAN choose how you respond, physically, emotionally, internally. You CAN choose to believe in your self. That you ARE strong.
