One of you all sent me this. I thought it would be interesting to share it.
A true strong woman doesn’t back down from challenges. She face them head-on. She doesn’t hide from them, she faces them and comes out swinging.
A true strong woman has survived more storms than the weather has battled upon the earth in her lifetime and has the real battle scars to prove it but yet she still stands tall. She isn’t perfect but she knows how to forgive her own imperfections and never hide them behind a facade. What one see is what they get. She knows to cry isn’t a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of humanity. It’s a sign of strength.
A true strong woman isn’t so caught up into herself, into proving herself, that she doesn’t need anyone. She knows when she needs help and isn’t afraid to ask for it even if she doesn’t get it. Rejection doesn’t hurt her for she knows her worth and knows that those who reject her, it’s their lost, not hers. She doesn’t allow petty gossip to grace her ears for she has much better things to do. She doesn’t hate unless given a valid reason and even then she soon push it aside for it only stands in the way of her greatness. It’s hard to ruffle her feathers for something or someone has to be extraordinary to do so. The average or mediocre bores her. Even in the role of motherhood or being a wife, she never lose sight in who she is as a human, as a woman. She doesn’t allow these attributes to define who she is. It is she who defines them, not they defines her. She is a fountain of tranquility for she knows her strength and is at peace with herself.
The truth be told, most people can not deal with a true strong woman. That’s why the weak, confused woman, or damsel in distress is so popular in literature and the media because a true strong woman, too many find her intimidating. Men and women alike.
