en·dur·ance (n-drns, -dyr-)n.1. The act, quality, or power of withstanding hardship or stress.
And a few quotes on the topic:
We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation.”
― Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept
Don't judge me until you know me. Don't underestimate me until you challenge me. And don't talk about me until you talk to me!

"and I will take this wound and all the wounds beneath and I'll wash them with my tears... watch my metamorphosis... blackness in my belly I'm not scared of you anymore for my wounds are the soil in which I grow... I will not lie down... I am more than the sum of my broken parts"
