I know many of us are feeling worried and believe me when I tell you that you’re not alone. People the world over are feeling the same way as you, and it’s so easy to fall prey to fear, panic or anxiety with everything that’s happening in our world today.

And it’s really easy to think how lovely it would be to say in bed, hide under the covers and wait until it all goes away.  I have lots of days when I’d just like to hide under my covers!  Let’s be honest, it isn’t surprising that we sometimes think this is all we can do. 

But it’s not.

We do what we can to protect ourselves and our loved ones physically, but there are other things we can do to to stay strong and prevent our fear and anxiety from poisoning us from within.

Motivational and inspirational quotes have, over time been proven to be beneficial in giving hope or opening the door to a mindset that reminds you that ‘you’ve got this.’

Words are one of the most powerful forces available to us.  Words we speak aloud or those we speak to ourselves.  They have the power and energy to heal or harm. And in times of trouble, we need to be using them to lift us up, to heal, to help.

Here’s 30 Stay Strong quotes for times of crises. You can use them to tap into your inner strength to better see you through troubling times.

This hell on earth is unlike anything that’s ever taken place. Who knows when it will end, or if it ever will? We might all be in for a lot of pain in the near future, so we need to be strong and we need to stick together. There’s no telling how bad things will get

Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.

 PAULO COELHO

It’s interesting how we often can’t see the ways in which we are being strong – like, you can’t be aware of what you’re doing that’s tough and brave at the time that you’re doing it because if you knew that it was brave, then you’d be scared

It is one thing to be strong but it is quite another to be strong and understand that any issues or obstacles can be tackled with more confidence when you have someone by your side. It doesn’t have to be someone that does anything in a direct way to help you, it can be as simple as lending you an attentive ear so that you can talk through your current issues.

BYRON PULSIFER

ROBERT H. SCHULLER

On your worst days you need faith and strength. Faith that everything will work out and strength to hang on until it does.

ELLE SOMMER

There you have it. Never underestimate the effect and power of words and quotes. They can work magic in your life. Remember repetition creates patterns for the subconscious to operate from. Say and think something often enough, even if it’s not true and before too long you will begin to believe it. And then act from it.

Stay safe and well and remember to encourage one another. We are all in this together and hopefully we begin to see more fully the connection we all share.

    • It’s a tough time for the whole world right now Sandra. I think every bit of love and light we can share can only be a good thing.

  1. Thank you for the inspiration, Elle. I like this one:

    “Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. Strength comes from overcoming the things you thought you couldn’t.”

    My son is on the front lines in a mental health /addiction facility. He keeps telling me how tough it is …and I have no doubt it is. I also keep telling him that he is building incredible strength.

    • Oh wow…many blessings to your son, may he stay safe and well. He is a hero. Much love to you all. <3
