Self Development By Mae Davies / February 16, 2015 You feel the weight of many problems on your shoulder. You feel like the world is crushing down on you. You feel like everyone is against you. And you feel like you have to move mountains just to make everything right. You may feel like you want to give up and curl up in a dark corner, but never despair and never give up, because the truth is, you’re stronger than you think. Women, according to statistics, have a higher tolerance for pain than men. I’m stating this because I really see a lot of women who easily wallow in despair, who easily give up without even trying and giving their best. It’s quite sad when I see my fellow gals lose confidence and faith in themselves, and it’s quite frustrating when they won’t do anything because of it, when in fact I know for sure that they can do so much more with their current situation. Though women may look weaker in physique and body structure, we should never underestimate ourselves because we’re stronger than what we would normally think. From dysmenorrhea, to the pangs of childbirth, to handling emotional pain and family problems, to making our mark in a male-dominated world, we work our way amidst problems with class and style. One of the most amazing things about women is our resilience. We may find ourselves depressed because of a misfortune, but still, we try to stand up once again and face the problems that we have head on. We may cry whenever we encounter a hard time in our lives, but after wiping away and drying our tears, after licking our wounds, we fight back with our heads held high. That’s why whenever you have a problem that you feel like you can’t solve, don’t just easily give up and don’t just give in to depression. Always look at the bright side of things; never despair and never underestimate the fighting spirit that you have as a woman because you’re way more powerful and stronger than you think.
