Though it may seem obvious, many people maintain a faulty perception regarding emotional strength; they believe being emotionally strong means controlling, shutting down, or shutting out thoughts, feelings, needs, and perceptions – in other words, dismissing what you know.
By contrast, when someone stays aware of and attuned to their experience (“know what you know”), they consistently feel more empowered and more willing to take risks in all areas of their life.
Feeling capable and being resourceful are necessary in order to develop true emotional strength, self-confidence, resilience and a sense of wellbeing.
How have you defined emotional strength?
Or expressed a different way, what makes you feel emotionally strong?
I’d love for you to respond on my facebook group!
