When you are strong

When you are strong people forget that you are a person who has needs too. When you are the strong one there is a comfort, for others, that there is someone to turn to. But when you are strong, often people forget that you may need to turn to someone too.

When you are strong people tend to think you have no worries. You are there for them, their shoulder, their eye, their security. But when you are strong, you often have to simply find strength in yourself.

When you are strong people often don’t realize that sometimes you are worn down, exhausted, and needing a break. You will find people starting off a conversation with their problems, not even pausing for a greeting. You have the answers, the solutions to their problems, their drama, whatever the case may be at that moment. W

When you are strong you tend to become invisible as a person, you become a source of comfort for others. You are no longer you, you are there to be a pillar of strength for others.

When you are strong, the strength becomes exhausting. It becomes draining. It becomes overwhelming. Sometimes you just want someone to be strong for you.
