Rigidity can have the appearance of strength because of all the effort it requires. Muscles are flexed and grasps are tight.

An imbalance it this direction however, builds only the foundation of fragility. When anything is held in or held onto with such tension, there will come an inevitable snapping, breaking, exploding.

With such a tight grip on feelings or beliefs there is a closing up as muscles are contracted.

With stretching though, there is an opening up, there is a release. Spreading out means inviting space in and developing the flexibility to bend without breaking.

True strength comes when suppleness is brought into the emotional and physical body. So be gentle with yourself. Go slowly and stretch into the tenderness.
