Finding Your Own Inner Strength

It is so difficult to find a way out when we are suffering from disappointment in life; but we can find our own empowerment. In fact, finding our own empowerment or inner strength is what keeps us from giving up in life. It is what keeps us going. It is what leads us to where we are supposed to be, inevitably.

Often we continuously ask questions of ourselves. Why is this happening to me? How will I go on? How will I survive? While these are all very reasonable questions, and in the heart of our pain we will ask them, and more of ourselves. But really there is no answer. We don’t know why we must suffer in life to find happiness. We won’t ever know why some receive a lot and others just a little bit. Only after we realize this, will we be able to go on. Going on and letting go is the best present you can give to yourself.

You may sometimes feel like you are losing the battle; but when you push through the battle, you come out on the other side and feel like you’ve just won a war. Do you know why? It’s because you are empowered when you conquer life’s toughest battles. Only at these times of empowerment, do we grow into the people we are meant to be. Think about that for a minute. Think of all the struggles you’ve faced, all the tears you’ve cried in vain and realize, they got you where you are today. Who would you be right now, if it wasn’t for the struggles you have been through in your life?

For me personally, I constantly wish I didn’t have to go through the battles life has confronted me with- heartache,depression, financial difficulties, chronic illness and career change to name, but a few. But all of these things have turned me into the compassionate person I am today. It is through my pain, I found the ability to inspire others with my writing. I wouldn’t have ever begun to write, if my life hadn’t changed in the way it has. I’m not sure there is anyone that hasn’t experienced some pain that has made them grow into who they are today. In fact, would you really want to be without some pain? How would you ever know joy and happiness, if you never knew the pain?

We need to realize that our past has shaped us into who we are right now. We need to accept who we are and love who we are. Find the empowerment within yourself to just realize you are amazing, beautiful and worth love and affection, from yourself as well as from others.

  1. Thank you so much for writing for Be a Leading Lady, Deb. What a wonderful and encouraging article! I honestly believe it takes having gone through the fire to write like this. We are kindred spirits, my friend.

  2. I absolutely agree with you, Debbie. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right? Cliche, I know, but a good one. I agree that without pain you have no idea that you are even feeling joy when you do feel it. How would you know the difference? Every bad thing that we go through teaches us something new. It’s hard to see it while you’re going through it. Sometimes it’s hard to see even when it’s been a while. But, eventually you do learn what you are supposed to learn from the situation.
