Let’s all admit it. Strong and confident ladies are the ones who make this world go around.
These remarkable beings know how much they’re worth. They know exactly what they want from life and they don’t sit around expecting things to just land in their laps. They work hard for it and they make their wildest dreams come true. Strong women are undoubtedly the motivation that we all need in life.
But, there is something even more inspiring about these women.
They don’t allow to be defined or controlled by men.
They bow down to no one!
You want to know why?
Because real, courageous ladies are not afraid to be alone. They’ve been through a lot in life and they know that the only way to find happiness is by creating it yourself.
They’ve wasted a lot of their energy dealing with toxic individuals to finally understand that this life is short enough as it is and the only way to make it worthwhile is by focusing on themselves.
I know what you think, it’s far easier to talk about strong women, than to actually be a strong woman.
It takes courage and will to fight for what you deserve, and not settle for what comes along the way.
It takes countless sleepless nights of contemplating life.
It takes real bravery to be able to resist the tides and swim in the opposite direction.
It takes real balls to know what you want and GET IT.
It takes true integrity to say NO.
It takes honesty to be able to say what you truly need in life.
That is why, when it comes to relationships, half-assed, make-believe, pretended love is something that these women would never settle for.
Strong women know how precious their time is and they refuse to waste it on people who don’t bother respecting it.
Strong women live life by their own rules. They carefully set their boundaries and punish those who violate them.
Strong women don’t need to settle down. They are focused on their own journey of self-growth.
Strong women know that happiness can be found inside their hearts, not in some shallow relationship. And especially not in the manipulative embrace of a player whose only concern is whether he’ll get laid or not.
Above all, strong women don’t perceive relationships as safety nets in which one should lay down and just relax. They see relationships as life challenges. Powerful connections that are made to last a lifetime.
Just as the wise as Buddha once said, “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
That is why these beautiful, fearless and incredible creatures don’t waste their time on inconsiderate, rude and arrogant men. They would rather spend their lives in solitude, working on their spiritual growth and their dreams, than waste another minute in a shallow, immature relationship with someone who only sees them as a disposable toy.
To them, being alone has nothing to do with loneliness.
To them, being alone is how the journey of self-love and self- improvement begins.
So, here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them!
