If you've ever talked to a weight lifter about doing a dead lift near their max, they don't feel strong either, they feel like "holy shit this thing is really heavy". It doesn't mean they aren't strong though.
I reckon the stuff you have survived, the huge lessons you have learned, the generous and kind things you have done for others and the skills you have built make you very strong (and a good person, too). When bad stuff happens, you're kinda working out your brain, and testing all those skills, but i hope you don't mistake that feeling of strain for weakness.

@j95 'shoulds' can get us into a real trap, although it might feel like there are specific reactions you 'should' be having to dealing with a lot right now, really everyone will handling things in their own unique way and that's totally okay.
Feeling like it's inescapable is a lot to contend with. There's some stuff you feel you can't change at the moment and that's absolutely not a failing on your part. What can we do to help you feel like coping is a bit more bearable right now?
