Making mistakes is an inevitable part of being human and they can occur in various areas of our lives, but strong people embrace them as opportunities for growth and learning rather than fearing them.
Strong people accept their mistakes and don't prioritize always being right, as they view these instances as opportunities for growth.
Strong people persevere in challenging situations, find positives, and don't give up, even if they experience setbacks, such as losing a job opportunity or financial investment.
Strong people know that it takes courage to be truthful and honest about their struggles, which is a sign of strength, and they don't suppress or hide their experiences of struggling, as they accept it as a natural part of life.
Strong people embrace discomfort and personal growth, trusting the process and becoming the next best version of themselves.
Strong people are not afraid of having difficult conversations and are straightforward in dealing with situations, being honest about their feelings and addressing any issues head-on.
Perfectionism can be a sign of weakness and an excuse for not starting something; strong people know that progress is more important than waiting for perfection.
Strong people don't waste energy on thinking about regrets and how things could be different, but instead accept the past for what it was, see the lessons in their past experiences, and frame things in a way that is helpful.
