Being soft does not equate to being weak. Bamboos, they may not be as sturdy as a tree trunk, but they can bend with the wind, and still rise up the way they were.
Let people think you are weak, for they only mistaken your softness as your weakness. Let them see weakness during the dark. Let people think you’re a prey when you know you have always been a wolf, the leader of the pack. Let them mistaken your call of strength for a cry, surprise them and show them something in you when they least expect it. Use it as an advantage to show them something that they never thought you were, a person full of resilience shaped by everything you’ve been through. Let their own judgement deceive themselves and be unapologetic of your strength.
There will be people who will never think that a dark battle is something you hide. Your softness is the language that others cannot speak. It is your voice that not everyone can fathom. Your spirit is meant to be wild and should not be tamed. Do not think of your softness as weakness, for rarely will anyone shows their real side. Do not be affected by the people intimidated by your strength for they have never thought of it as something for the world to see.
Be grateful for the tears that drip from your heart, for it waters your soul. Being soft is an attribute of strength. Do not apologize for feeling your emotions. Not everyone has the strength to embrace the times they are vulnerable. Tears are concentrated feelings that tells you’re alive. Let your softness build your presence, for your presence will always be better than other’s mere existence.
Sometimes, it is good to embrace the solitude of being soft. Your sensitivity is your strength because you have the power to embrace what others can’t. You have the power to see the pain and struggles of others. You have the power to lend a hand when even you, needs one. You know what is it like to be in the darkness, you know pain. Courage doesn’t always roar, sometimes it is a voice deep inside your heart whenever you try to carry on. Let them be amazed by the strength you have been keeping yourself.
Ignore people who think that they know you more than you do. If you are ignored for feeling sad, it does not mean that what you’re feeling is bad. It is because either your feelings are too deep for the people who can’t dive as deep as you, or because they have also been ignored the same way they do to you. You have been through hell, but you still rise with the wings of an angel.
You became soft in the hardest way, which tells that you are unstoppable.
