Nobody wants to strain their voice, but so many singers do it because they put too much strain on their THROATS instead of relying on the BODY to be a natural resonance chamber. You don't have to have a big body to employ this technique, either!
When singing, relax the throat, keep the larynx down and imagine placing the voice in the body, not high in the head or throat. When you release your sound and relax into the body, using the body to actively support your tone, also, you get a huge voice with little or no effort!! That way, you won't hurt your throat while you're singing or speaking, and the voice will be rich and resonant, too!
