What makes a strong person? Someone who has a well-sculpted body with hard muscles everywhere is one thing to consider in the literal sense of it. But allow me to bring it a little further towards where something must be gauged out of a person who swims through life’s stormy seas exposing the kind of material he or she was being made of and the quality of the things that he or she possessed crucial to his or her showing of his or her full potential as a person.
German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche was right when he said that “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Scientific studies conducted to prove this claim revealed that a person who had the most of life’s traumatic experiences is the one who would most likely to become more resilient and can cope up with any bad situation easily and faster. In other words, it makes one a veteran in that field.
Perhaps these bad experiences and other negative things in life, in my own opinion, are designed to make you become immune with these things and that they will only bring out the best in you. But still, no matter how things turned out to be in the long run, it is what you decide to choose and how to react with the things you have chosen for yourself should be important.
I would like to question, though, about how much should the extent of severity for these traumatic experiences and difficulties a person must have endured or survived to be considered beneficial. Will these things make you or break you?

Of course, to have a miserable life experiences can be bad for anybody else although the same could also make people become tough and better in overcoming difficulties. The following are just 10 of the best qualities that, in my own opinion, makes up a strong person:
