I am going to write something on the concept of power vs strength for all my kids. Both of my husband's children went through some abuse and trauma when they were younger and have a very hard time with some negative thoughts and behaviors that DH and I have been working on intensely in the hopes that they will have a better chance at healing and becoming productive, decent adults. Recently, I spoke with an adult who healed from the same disorder they have and plan to speak with others, even as I'm in the process of speaking to other adults who are raising children with the same issue. The question I'd like to input on from both adults and hopefully from children you may have, whether they are mentally healthy or have gone through abuse/trauma in the past, is the definition of power vs strength. Is there an example in your life of a time when you used power (in a negative way) vs a time you used strength (in a positive way) and reaped better results from being a strong person vs a powerful one? How much true respect do you have for someone who shows moral and mental strength vs someone who simply holds a lot of power but lacks strength? Was there a point in your life where you realized that you needed to stop trying to be powerful and needed to work on becoming strong instead? BTW, my point isn't going to be that power is wrong, just that strength is better and if one DOES become powerful, it takes strength to control that power and use it with wisdom while remaining uncorrupted by it, leading into the only power we have should come from G-d and simply be His power passing through us instead of us trying to control that power on our own.
