There are those who like to point out that we live in a modern age. An age where women are allowed to vote, have equal rights and can work to acquire their own income. Many people think that because of the times we live in, that this has brought a new generation of strong independent women…..
I’m really not sure how or why this is being brainwashed into people…. Women have always been strong, this isn’t a new phenomenon!
12.You must match her level.
Strong women know that balance is key to successful relationship and they won’t settle for anyone who isn’t a vibrational match. Whatever she does, she gives it her all, and she expects you to do the same. While your strengths might not be the same as hers, she appreciates what she saw in you from the beginning and wants you to always drive yourself.
11. She can express how she really feels
A strong woman knows that there is no point in beating around the bush when it comes to how she really feels. Holding things in won’t serve you or her and she is able to tell you what is bothering her, no game playing.
10. She expects you to pull your weight
The last thing a strong woman needs is potato couch. A strong woman is driven, her goals are clear and she is focused. So get off the couch or she will leave you right where you sit.
9. She is secure in herself
A strong woman isn’t afraid to show her true colours and she is proud of who she is, no matter the hell she has been through. Because of this stability she has a tendency to make others feel insecure about their own path, and so you’d better have yourself figured out before you go looking for a relationship with her.
8. She will hold things for you
A strong woman, is strong inside and out. She knows when your plate is full and you can’t handle anything else. A strong woman will hold some of your emotional burdens until the point where she feels you are ready to face them for yourself.
7.She doesn’t mind being alone
A strong woman knows the difference between being alone and lonely. She has mastered herself and won’t enter into a relationship until she has overcome the “need for someone”. A strong woman will choose you to share her life with you, and it is your choice to share yours.
“Don’t be the kind of woman who needs a man, be the kind of woman a man needs”.
6. She has strong morals and values
A strong woman has found the balance between logical thinking and following her heart. She is compassionate, generous and courageous. A strong woman knows when she is being taken advantage of and won’t stand for it, even for a minute. A strong woman knows her limits and stays true to herself ensuring that she doesn’t indulge in things that will insult her soul.
5. Her conversations are full of depth
A strong woman looks beyond simple pleasantries, and small talk. While she is naturally gifted at it, she wants to see beyond your words to look a little deeper. Strong women find intelligent conversations stimulating and can’t get enough when it comes to learning new things.
4. She isn’t afraid to be vulnerable.
“Vulnerability is the corner-stone of confidence”. A strong woman is confident and this confidence has been manufactured by strategically placing herself in situations that made her muster her courage in order to achieve greatness. These happenings would have left her vulnerable, as she awaited the response, judgement and criticism of others. A strong woman recognizes that it takes putting yourself out there in order to move yourself forward, no matter how many times you fall flat on your face.
3. She won’t stick around because she has to.
A strong woman doesn’t fall for guilt trips. She has a forgiving heart, but knows all too well that too many “I’m sorry’s” without a behaviour change is a clear sign that its time for her to continue on her way.
“Sometimes I’m sorry isn’t enough, you actually have to change”.
2. She respects herself and you had better too.
A strong woman holds the same level of respect for others as she does herself. Disrespect her, and you are only hurting yourself.
1. A strong woman knows when to be weak.
The strongest women I have ever known are the women who have completely destroyed themselves in order to rebuild from a blank canvas.
The strongest women know when its time to lay down her sword, take off her mask and let her soul cry out in surrender. A strong woman knows when it is time to cocoon herself so that she may undergo the metamorphosis and emerge from her chrysalis to fly on the wings of new life. A strong woman knows that in her greatest weakness, she will also find her greatest strength.
