  • I've thought so and then I've learned that I was wrong and could handle much more. Who knows when I'll hit a breaking point though.

  • I push myself pretty hard, more emotionally than physically. Physically, I'll push to see if I can get "just one more" set in, emotionally - I tend to just keep piling it on until it's too much.

  • When I break down and cry I have hit my point emotionally. When I am in so much pain that I am in tears again, physically then I have hit my limit.

  • Yes, I do. This self-awareness has really developed with age and maturity. When I was younger, I fought certain things about myself, or let them get me down, but I don't really do that anymore. I am not in denial about what my strengths and weaknesses are and this helps me to not only be a more productive person by understanding my limits and coming up with other ways to accomplish things, but also to explain to the people around me why certain things are as they are for me.

  • My DD was killed at age 20 in 2003 and I learned that I'm a stronger person than I ever thought I could or would be. I asked the police to kill me for hrs when they came to my door, and now 7 yrs later I'm not nearly the emotional wreck I was then. I have learned how to live thru my grief and live my life again, and now help in the raising of her son.

  • Oh boy I would say yes! My brother died a few years ago and it totally paralyzed me. I was totally caught off guard. Now I am stronger and much more sympathetic.

  • Yes I know my limits, but how do you get stronger if you don't push yourself physically or challenge yourself mentally. Limits should just be a general idea of what you think you can handle
