The Anatomy of Inner-Strength.
Inner Strength comes in all shapes and sizes. It takes many forms, from compassion to kind words, from silence when faced with insults to taking action when faced with injustice. When faced with aggression, inner-strength can take the form of non-violence.
You were not born with inner-strength. It is something that you can develop at any age, and it’s never too late. You can cultivate it, just as you can acquire most of life’s strengths, skills, and traits.
The Components of Inner-Strength.
When you learn to be more present, you are more aware of what transpires in your immediate surroundings. It is going to be an essential strength you develop through meditation and other mindfulness exercises.
When you are present and recognize things around you, you are more aware of your thoughts and emotions. Moreover, you are more observant of the nonverbal cues of those around you as well. When you stay with your thoughts and notice your feelings, you grow in your ability to check.
When you can observe, you naturally grow in your ability to respond to a situation rather than react.
When you practice this process or path, you are actively gaining the capacity to deal with life’s challenges. When faced with a situation that is distressing or stressful, your inner-strength makes it easier to manage.
