In the times of grief, it is hard to find strength. This is probably the worst thing that befalls on you but somehow you have to find the strength to keep going on. The anguish of any journey makes you feel weak and powerless but somehow you realize that you can take it and pretty much anything else that comes along the way. But staying in that moment, you move forward with an extremely slow pace. The blow of immense grief cannot be reduced immediately but you can keep yourself motivated once you become aware of your strength.
Pain or strife is the only way to know the extent of your inner power and they make you stronger.
Following are the changes that you will observe to know that you are stronger than you think:
You have become accustomed to changes:
If you find yourself not very much disturbed with the occurring changes, it means you have become accustomed to them. When things happen you seem more resilient and remain calm during stressful situations. This indicates that you have gained some strength and they no longer appear threatening.
Not hesitant in making decisions:
Another important thing that indicates your courage is that you are not hesitant in making decisions. You flawlessly take action and are more eager to getting things done even when the times are tough. When you can easily take decisions and separate yourself from what is going on then you have surely become stronger.
You take care of yourself:
If you can make the tough decisions, take the actions which you previously never imagined of doing, and are financially in a better position to live life, it means you have gained strength. Taking care of yourself both physical and mental indicates that you are aware of your needs and prefer your own wellbeing over everything else.
You can wait:
You may not have patience initially when you started facing difficulties, but now you are more comfortable with waiting. When you can wait for something and allow things to resolve on their own, it means you have changed to a great deal.
Retain your passion and desires:
Your strength also lies in how much you stay loyal to your morals and standards that you have kept for yourself. If you do not find comfort in settling for relationships that aren’t right for you, you stay firm to your desires even when others try to make you compromise. This also indicates that you are stronger than you believe.
You don’t feel yourself as weak or powerless even when the things do not go as you planned. You understand how you feel and have a healthy image of your own self. You give preference to your likes, dislikes, and passions. You defend yourself without hesitation even when you know the stakes are high. This indicates that you have become stronger than you believed you are.
