Strong and confident ladies make this world go around. I can honestly say that I’m proud to say that I’m surrounded by real ‘girl boss’ women who know exactly how to grab life by its balls and take matters into their hands.
These remarkable creatures know their worth. They know exactly what they want from life and they don’t sit around expecting things to fall of the sky. They work hard for their biggest goals and deepest desires.
But, most importantly, strong women don’t allow to be defined by men.
They will never be obedient and submissive to another person.
They will bow down to no man!
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 yourself.
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 when it feels like a NO.
It takes honesty and nobility to be able to say what you truly need in life.
So, when it comes to relationships, half-assed, make-believe, pretended love is just not going to cut it.
Strong women know how precious their time is and they refuse to waste it on a people who don’t bother to respect it.
Strong women live life by their own rules. They carefully set their boundaries and allow no one to cross them.
Strong women know that happiness can be found inside their hearts, not in some shallow relationship. And especially not in the deceitful 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 consider relationships a life challenge. A powerful connection that can only encourage them to open their wings and fly.
Strong women don’t need to settle down. Because they are focused on their own journey of self-growth.
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 douchebags. They would rather spend their lives in a solitude, working on their spiritual growth and their dreams, than spend a minute trapped 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!
