25 Personality Characteristics to Prove You Are a Mentally Strong Person

By Andrew Alpin, 3 November 2017


Life isn’t a breeze and it is life’s challenges and ups and downs that make us stronger. The attitude to accepting failures is best summed up in the words of my favorite film, character “Rocky Balboa “nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!”

Not everyone is as strong in mind, but!! You can learn from your experiences and stop regarding yourself as a sorry figure unable to achieve your goals. Every one of us is a unique person and remember it takes, even more, courage for a person facing anxiety and depression to stand up and stare back at life and move on. In truth you are mentally strong, it just takes a bit of digging into your own faculties you thought you never had. According to psychotherapists, here are 25 characteristics of a mentally strong person. 

1You maintain a balance between logical reasoning and your emotions

As a practical person, you maintain a good balance between emotions and logic applying the same to life’s decisions. An emotional situation doesn’t always influence the right decision and this is why you think before acting by analyzing the possible outcome of a situation. You allow neither to prevail over the decision making process.

2You are a productive person

You don’t believe in wasting your time and giving excuses for not doing a job well. You will always get your work done because like all mentally strong people, your priorities are set and you know what to focus on and when. You don’t believe in indulging on time-wasting activity.

3You are highly adaptable to change


Evolution is all around us and so is life. Changes don’t seem to faze you like it may do to others. You are more than willing to adapt to new circumstances through your own ability to cope with ever-changing reality.

4You face your fears and tackle them head on

Everyone has fears even mentally strong people do. But a strong mind will face up to the fact of having to face life’s demons that can’t be avoided and will summon up the courage to do so. Mentally strong people will confront obstacles and fears just to remove them from the path of self improvement.

5You learn from failure and mistakes

A mentally strong person accepts failure and mistakes as part of the learning process only not to commit them again. They don’t hide in corners regarding themselves as losers neither will they hide their mistakes and acknowledge them in hopes that it will make them better.
