I don’t think it’s a virtue or an accomplishment to hide or deny your pain 

so that you can take care of others. 

To say ‘but you are strong’ is telling someone ‘I don’t think you should feel that way,’ 

and it’s not a compliment. 

I don’t think that strength means being invulnerable, or pretending that you are. 

The belief that silence and stoicism are inherently good qualities is how you end up dressed up like a bat punching criminals in an alley 

– it’s not a good road to emotional health.

The lie of "strength".
