strength - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
I became my own strength. I learned not to lean. I began to process my own troubles. That is a thing mature adults must do if they are to protect the youth and those they love.
The strength of man and woman stems from love of the self and others, for as we learn self honesty we are honest in society, and from honesty comes trust and the bonds of love. Love is our strength. Circles are strong. All of human biology is feedback loops and this is the same.
Show me a knife and I'll show you naked skin, for when I heal I will be stronger than you. Come to break my bones and I will stand with feet rooted in the same spot, for when I heal my bones will be stronger than yours. I have direction and focus, and so even my smallest steps carry me further than your greatest strides. This is strength without power, leadership without dominance, something priceless in every sense. Perhaps once you stood beyond me and looked back, laughing, look again. It is I who am now ahead, yet I hold out my hand to help you with sincerity.Though you caused my greatest pain, I remain your greatest hope. I am strong because love is strength. I love therefore I am.
In my weakness I found my strength. All along I was turning outward, expressing love to the world in the hope of some coming back. I offered my soul like a brilliant white light, a force to heal an ailing world of cynicism. Yet what they saw was my wounded side and pushed me further away, that survival instinct to sideline the weak kicking in. I've never been like that, always running toward the needy, and so was confused. Now I understand, that to help others I must be strong in myself, love myself. And so I take that love I poured outward and let it flow in my own veins, channelling the spirit of the lioness. I am not in need of company; I am not alone - I have solitude, peace and time to heal without the needs of others. I take my adversity and I make it my advantage.
When you have felt the difference between a real loving bond and a parasitic clasp, you will always remember and thus be better protected. A real love, a real lover, a true loving bond, will bring you to new strength and inner peace.
