Strong personalities make it in the toughest situations or positions that they find themselves in. Having a strong personality does not only involve having a strong mental character, but involves seeing yourself as a “no pushover” person.
We are living in the world, where first impression they say counts, but what’s the use of a first impression when you make yourself so free and open for anyone and everyone to take advantage of you?
We have to understand that not all faces look friendly, and the only way you can tell if someone is being honestly real with you is by taking the veil off his or her face. Some veils are harder to remove of course, hence the reason you need t develop a strong personality.
Think of it as a shield or shock absorber to withstand the various characters you might encounter or entertaining especially if its in a situation where you are put amongst different people of diverse backgrounds.
Never let anyone devalue you. Let your strong persona defy their notions and its only then that they’ll learn to respect you for who you truly are.
