Strength isn't always physical. Mentally and emotionally, everyone goes through a lot of ups and downs in their lifetime. Each person's circumstances are different and each of those experiences puts our mental and emotional strength to the test. While some take a lot of time to find it, there are some zodiac signs that have a reserve of that strength that they can call upon at any time. And it's these five zodiac signs that are not only fierce but also emotionally strong.
You never do anything you don't want to do, especially if it goes against your values. You believe in putting your own needs first and that means being emotionally strong enough to say "no" to someone, even if it comes from a loved one. You'd rather fight out issues than just give in to someone to make them happy. Life is too short to only do the things that others tell you to do, especially if you're not interested in it in the first place. Sometimes, your emotions might spill over but because you know how to control them, your outbursts don't last very long.
When it comes to letting people into your life, it's a slow, tough process. Not because you don't want to be with new people, but because you've been hurt before and you refuse to let anyone else do that to you. Only after a careful vetting process and of course time, do you allow them to see the side of you most others don't get to see. It's your way of protecting your emotions from being damaged again. People may accuse you and rant at you for taking too long to trust anyone, but it's your choice. You aren't going to loosen your standards to please someone else.
Virgos, you may not be the best at always expressing your emotions but that doesn't mean that they don't exist. Instead, you've taken all your experiences with loved ones and used it to build up your emotional strength so that you can finally share it without worrying about it being broken down. But one thing is for certain — you will not be rushed. You aren't afraid to take it slow and make sure to take time out for yourself. Self-care is a priority for you and you understand the value of stopping to smell the roses or sitting to enjoy your surroundings.
When you walk into a room, you turn heads with the confidence you ooze. You have a healthy ego, one that doesn't allow you to stop believing in yourself. You take pride in your accomplishments and rarely second-guess yourself. You know the importance of good self-worth and wouldn't do anything that could make that shatter. But what truly makes you an emotionally strong sign is the fact that when you need to provide encouragement for yourself, you don't hesitate to do it. You don't allow anything to bring you down and make you feel like your feelings are invalid.
Sagittarians practically live inside their head all the time. While it might not be the best in the long run, it means you know every nook and cranny of your emotional state. It's given you the power to take all your weaknesses and build a defense around it in such a way that you know just how to cope well with stress or life issues. Because you're well-informed about your own emotional state, you process information well and know exactly how to control your emotions. Being in the thick of a bad situation doesn't bother you anymore, because you know how to handle it, and privately to boot. You calm yourself down and make sure that things will be alright.
While it might just be these five signs mentioned, everyone has a reservoir of strength. You are a culmination of all your experiences, hardships and hurdles overcome and it has made you into the person you are today — wounded but not scarred.
