This is for all the strong ladies, who have been through a lot in life and survived!!!!

I am strong because I know weakness, I am compassionate because I have experienced suffering, I am alive because I am a fighter, I am wise because I've been foolish, I can laugh because I have known sadness. I can love because I've known loss. Repost if you are a strong woman who has weathered the storm but still love to dance in the rain!!!

I saw that on Facebook this week, and saved it so I could write about it later. And now, it's later. It takes so much sometimes for us to learn about ourselves, and to grow from within, and it can sometimes take great adversity to spur the growth and understanding of ourselves.

We can learn a lot about ourselves from what we experience - I went from being a very weak, foolish person that experienced a lot of sadness and suffering. What I've been through in my life has certainly molded me into who I am today - in some ways I am much stronger, but in some ways, I feel like I am still weak.

It's a frequent battle within for me, to overcome some of my experiences. I reflect on my past, talk about it sometimes, bottle it up sometimes, and just try to get past it sometimes. Not sure what works best to get rid of it, but I suppose I will never completely get rid of it. I just have to keep on moving on from it.

Anyways, Not much more to elaborate on the quote, it pretty much says it all!
