Hello! If you haven’t seen me in person, I am just standing at 1.53m and weighing 46kg. I used to weigh between 40-42kg, and people always say I am so skinny, so petite, so fragile etc. But now, since I work out regularly, I am still considered petite but not strength-less and definitely not as fragile as I look.
Point 1 is too simple in comparison with point 2. Not many people have superb stress tolerance. I, for one, am someone with lots of emotions. I can take stress, yet I can’t. It’s a thin line. At times, when I thought I wouldn’t be able to handle it, I can, to my surprise.
In order to be stronger mentally and emotionally, I used to read many self-help and inspirational books. I used to meditate. If I am having difficulties with 2 sides of a situation, I sit myself down with no distractions and start placing points side by side. Once I have a clear view of the situation, the logical side of me takes over.
If I start panicking about something, I escape to somewhere where I don’t have to face the issue immediately, calm myself down before facing it again. Even when I don’t feel that strong, I tell myself I am. I make myself believe I am strong.
Another way that I can be strong is being there for friends who need me, being there for people who are less strong than me, and it makes me want to be strong for them.
