To me it's someone who can handle emotional struggle without breaking down or falling apart. Also someone who knows how to guard their heart.
I agree that inner strength is anchored not necessarily in the defeat of others but of conquering one's own self.

Emotional stability, strong moral backbone and belief system with courage to see things through.
I also agree that inner strength is having the wisdom and courage for the voyage towards what's good, as well as taking on and doing what's necessary.

She was named Strong Heart because of her conviction. Despite all odds, physical hurt, and internal turmoil, the protagonist did not fail in her endeavour, be it paddling the boat, adjusting to new people, or reading thoughts. Her thin frame did not define her ability, and she proved it by working harder than ever. The character of Strong Heart is quite similar yet unlike Sarah.
Sarah is the epitome of what her native name stands to signify, indeed.

Two things I think, strength and perseverance.
True. Tenacity is one, indeed.

Her conviction, perseverance, and not giving up in the most challenging situations
Sarah truly embodies the meaning of her traditional name, indeed.

I agree that it is not about conquering others. I think it can be defined differently for everyone though. There are many ways to have a Strong Heart.

I agree. Our individual perspectives could indeed vary. Even the most similar-looking twins could still have inherent differences much more so those who aren't born the same. It's good we've got a forum where we could connect with as well as learn from or about each other's ideas and thoughts.

A belief in an absolute system of right and wrong combined with the willingness to do what's right no matter what the consequences.

For me, a strong heart is the one that may cry and may get afraid, but still, it never loses hope and faces its fears.

Emotionally strong, willing to follow through with commitments, being there for others and knowing yourself and who you are.
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
