Inner strength of character cannot be measured by any means but performance in the time of need.
One of the greatest tragedies in life is to lose your own sense of self and accept the version of you that is expected by everyone else.
I have found that the less expectation you put on others, the more happiness you will find with them and yourself.
Powerful words come with powerful intent. Where you have passion, strength, courage, and determination you can accomplish anything!
