Life can be hard.
We make mistakes, go through rough patches, and times in our life where we just want to curl up into a ball and give up.
Because it just seems easier.
I think we all have times when we feel like our lives are falling apart and we wish for the strength to get through it, to make it through the other side in one piece.
We often put more pressure on ourselves than we need to. Maybe it’s to meet the expectations of others, or maybe it’s to keep up with what we want from ourselves. And it can build up.
Sometimes things just seem too much to handle.
Sometimes things get away from us, and we feel like we are failing.
But you are not weak, and are stronger than you thought possible.
Reasons you are stronger than you think you are.
You keep going
Being strong isn’t about not being afraid of anything. It means you have the ability to keep going, putting one foot in front of the other, even when your doubts and insecurities tell you that you can’t.
You aren’t afraid of failing
You keep going even when you think there is no point. Giving up is not an option.
You don’t care what others think
It can be difficult for someone who has always worried what other people think of them to let it go. You do things because it’s what you want.
You care what happens
A sign of strength is the fact you still care.
You focus on the things you can change
We all know that there are things that are out of our control, but taking note of the things you can change shows that you still want to make a difference.
You see value in the little things
We often have our sights set on great dreams or things that we wish to accomplish. But when you can see the value in the little things you see and do every day, it shows your strength in seeing the bigger picture and enjoying the moments along the way.
You are stronger than you think, and more capable than you realise.
What Happens When You Doubt Yourself
Self doubt brings fear
When you doubt your abilities, you bring fear into your life. You start feeling like you are out of control and nothing you do is good enough. It can make the things you want in life seem further and further away.
Giving up can be a habit
It can seem like the easier path to take when things seem difficult. Give up before you really fail. Because then it seems like you didn’t want it as much, and it was more a change of mind rather than giving up and not trying. If you don’t push yourself through it, you will never know where you would be if you had have kept going.
You Will Struggle to Reach Your Goals
If you don’t believe in yourself, you will always have these goals and these dreams which will always seem a bit too far away. You will have already convinced yourself that you don’t deserve it or it’s just not something you will ever be able to achieve.

If you ever have a voice, either in your head or someone else’s telling you are not strong enough, prove them wrong. Do the things no one thought you could. People do amazing things and prove other people wrong every day. So why can’t you?
The more you see what your self doubt has been doing to you, the easier it will be to see the strength you have. You will begin to see more opportunities, where once all you might have seen were obstacles in the way, stopping you from where you wanted to go.
It can affect your self esteem and lower your feelings of positivity and self worth.
Keep saying to yourself, “I am stronger than I thought. I am stronger now. I will be even stronger tomorrow.”
Be the person you want, and show the world who you are. You are much stronger than you think!
What makes you feel stronger and ready to take on the world?
