In life, we’re all put to the same test. You either accept society’s pressure, please everyone, act cool and behave like a nice woman or you choose to live life by your own rules.
A life that doesn’t fit society’s standards, nor people’s expectations. A life that is created by you and yourself only. A life that goes against every socially acceptable way of living and every conventional idea of success.
It is a tough call. And it is exactly this choice that makes a woman stand out from the crowd and develop into an even stronger person.
But, the price these women pay is often higher than they expect. These women have a lot in common, but the thing that binds them the most is the fact that they’re usually lonely.
Here’s the bittersweet truth about why strong women tend to end up all alone:
1. THEY PLAY BY THEIR OWN RULES
Which of course, are not always easily accepted by other people. Some of them judge others belittle and then there are a few special ones who actually encourage. They are the people who actually make the difference.
Other than that, life for these strong individuals is just surviving through another day of pointed fingers and judgmental looks.
2. THEY STAY AWAY FROM FAKE PEOPLE
Strong women never had any trouble speaking their mind. The thing that always bothered them were people who have a hidden agenda behind their words and actions. Phony, fake, manipulative people. Hypocrites. Liars. That is why they’ve always stayed away and kept their guard high up.
3. THEY GIVE A LOT BUT EXPECT NOTHING IN RETURN
Strong women have a big heart with a lot of love to give to the word, but when it comes to opening up and showing their vulnerability to other people, they are usually overprotective. It’s not their fault really. They’ve been through a lot of drama and pain in their life to finally learn that they shouldn’t expect anything from others.
4. THEIR INTENSE ENERGY INTIMIDATES PEOPLE
These amazing beings are sunshine in human form. But, no matter how bright they shine, not everyone around them has the strength to endure their intense energy. Some people are afraid that they might burn. Some are better off in the dark. Others are simply jealous of their light. As a result, the general ignorance is what keeps people at a distance from these confident women.
5. THEY’RE EITHER ALL ON OR OUT
More importantly, strong women never settle for average. They’re either 100% in or 100% out. There’s no in-between for them. Love, to them is about commitment, devotion, and mutual understanding. It should never be compromised.
That is why, when these women love, they love from the very bottom of their hearts. They love with their entire being. They love madly, deeply, passionately and completely.
6. THEY DON’T ASK FOR ATTENTION
Lastly, strong women never seek approval. They don’t need to be validated or accepted in order to exist. They know exactly who they are, what they search for and how capable they’re of achieving their visualized goals. They don’t need to be the center of attention. They don’t want to be the life of the party. What matters to these women is finding kind, genuine people who would understand the songs of their heart.
