They say that you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only option you have. Some people like to put a lot of emphasis on being strong.

There is a big difference between being strong and being tough. Between having the courage to pursue one’s dreams and isolating oneself emotionally from the rest of the world.

It’s about having a purpose, about having principles and abiding them no matter what.
