Strength Hurts / La Fortaleza Duele

Everyone wants to be strong.
Being strong hurts. You become strong when you persist and you learn, and you don’t refuse to accept the lessons pain can teach you. And there’s always someone to help you. Always. But you must allow them to help you.
Never underestimate the pain of the strong because it is forged in silence and with a smile, under pressure. And don’t try to test someone’s strength just because.
Would you test someone’s weakness just to see how weak they are?
Strength is a virtue that can be cultivated, not a gift. If you want to be strong, work on it, but don’t push someone to the limit of their strength. Maybe you’ll discover there’s strength in a goodbye.


Todo el mundo quiere ser fuerte.
Ser fuerte duele. Te haces fuerte a base de aguantar y aprender y no cerrarte a las lecciones que te enseña el dolor. Y siempre hay quien ayude. Siempre. Pero hay que dejar que Te ayuden.

Nunca subestiméis el dolor de los fuertes porque se fragua en el silencio y entre sonrisas, bajo presión. Y no pongáis a prueba la Fortaleza de alguien porque Si. ¿Os ensañaríais con la debilidad de alguien para ver cuán débil es?
La Fortaleza es una virtud que se cultiva, no un don. Si quieres ser fuerte, hazlo, pero no te dediques a empujar a alguien hasta el límite de su fuerza. Quizá descubras que también hay fuerza en un adiós.
