I used to wonder whether or not I was just being weak. I kept trying to make each time worse, just to see how far I could push myself, to build up to that moment when I wouldn't be afraid to finally let go. But I realized that I didn't need it, and I haven't for almost a year now. How many were jus

That is great to see that you have overcome some troubles in your life. You have let go of that and it has allowed you to move forward.

You are never weak, darling. Weakness is just the lack of trying. When you feel like you are being weak, you are just hoarding all the strenght you need to get up and beat every challenge you might face. Sometimes we can not let go all of our brave behaviour, sometimes we can not just do it, and we push ourself to the bottom, to the worst, just to see if we can sink any more. And it isn't a bad thing, because you are, in fact, testing yourself. You are telling your own body that you won't fail that miserably again. You are never weak, you are just making some strategy that can or can not be effective.

Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.

I can't quite say. That would be up to you to figure out. Now, since your question cuts off, I can't correctly answer it, but I can say that you being able to stop is a good thing.
