Strong Enough is about when I was coming to terms with my sexuality, beginning to embrace it and reach a level of acceptance. On some level, it was representative of a period where I did feel like I was gaining strength in my identity as a gay man. At the same time, I also realized that there was an internal feeling of emptiness beginning to develop. Even though I was beginning to embrace my new lifestyle, somehow there was something still missing. I was stronger but not yet strong enough.
