“A strong woman looks a challenge dead in the eye and gives it wink.” Gina Carey
Women. I love them. I admire them. I am one of them. And the best part is that I feel proud to be a woman and you should too.
I became more interested in women and our potential when I was told that being a woman means I am something less. I’ve met too many females who bowed their heads down or quietly followed just because it was expected. Many women live their lives according to others wishes or expectations, some stupid society rules and never fulfill their true desires.
Since I am excited to see changes which are happening and the fact that more and more women are stepping out, I decided to share a piece of my mind with you. Here are 6 signs of a strong-minded woman who can become unstoppable once she realizes her true power and strength.
1. A strong woman kick-ass
I know we are supposed to be gentle and cute, but in this world, you need to learn how to kick-ass. There are situations when you need to be tough and stand your ground, so people stop taking advantage of you.
A strong woman doesn’t wait for some hero to save her, she does it herself. Once you learn to rely on yourself and your ability, you will become much stronger and confident. You won’t be surprised when things hit the fan because you are going to be trained to deal with it.
2. She educate herself
Education and knowledge are power. As an active woman, you should always learn and explore new things. Maybe you are a housewife and your top priorities are kids and household. This doesn’t mean that the only learning material you should use is a cookbook or how to deal with your daughter’s first period.
Find topics which interest you. Maybe you like to read about infinite space or how to train a dog. It doesn’t matter. The important thing is to fulfill your interests and desires, not only needs of your family or your husband. I truly believe that women should have their “own thing.” Something that they can build up and feel proud of.
3. She knows her worth
And here comes a catch. How many of us truly know their worth? You don’t have to tell me, just answer this question for yourself.
One single most important thing you need to do is embracing your self-love. Only healthy self-respect can empower you and make you happy. Everything in your life will unfold base on how you see and value yourself.
Strong women understand and know their worth. They don’t let anyone play with their minds or feelings because they already know who they are and what they deserve.
4. Strong woman doesn’t give a damn what others think
In general, women are always judged more than men. Since many of us lost interest to figure this nonsense out, there is one practical thing we can do. Lose interest in others opinion. The moment when you stop carrying what people think about you is the moment you set yourself free.
Every strong woman knows that she is going to be judged. Powerful women are usually breaking the rules in some way and act rebellious. With this behavior, they automatically become a target of gossiping and criticism. If you know who you are and have respect towards your individuality, bad words of mouth can’t touch your heart.
5. Courage of a strong woman is always on fire
A strong woman isn’t afraid to stand up and say what is on her mind. She is courageous enough to express her opinions and disagreements. A woman who knows her worth can easily recognize toxic relationship and have the courage to walk away from them no matter how painful it may be.
Courage is one of the fundamentals of living a phenomenal life. Your future and your personal and professional success depend on it.
We are enjoying a higher freedom and better opportunities not because someone just decided to give it to us. This world is changing because of a few brave women who decided to break this discrimination pattern and demand equal rights. Use your courage and stop hiding in the corner. Become an inspiration to others, many women out there need that more than you think.
