    Strength is more than possession of physical

    prowess. Having the emotional muscle to speak your mind constructively and without using your words to injure the vulnerable and defenseless or the ones you love and trust most is real strength. Not all of us can advocate for ourselves. We've been conditioned to not make...

    I never cry over nothing.

    Only when i'm mad, or because of something reasonable. I haven't cried for months. But last night, as I was crying I realized that what made me cry was my weakness.

    a weak man can't love a strong woman.

    He wouldn't know what to do with her.

    As woman I feel like many times being strong us

    viewed as a negative. Yes we live in a male - dominant world but it does mean we have to be dominated by MEN. We are allowed to have minds,thoughts and opinions of our own. We are allowed to be educated and pretty at the same time. We don't need a man to come to our rescue...

    Choices are a part of life.

    And here I am. Making a big one. My boyfriend and I have decided to move in together. Try things out to see how our marriage would stand. I'm excited. Scared. Nervous. But that's all normal. It's a big step. I can't wait to start this new chapter of my life.

    A strong man can handle a strong woman.

    A weak man will say she has an attitude.

    Strong Enough People will think I'm a weak woman

    because I'm submissive. What people don't realize, is that it takes a very strong woman to submit. I'm strong enough to be His sub and that's all that matters.

    A strong woman is one

    who feels deeply and loves fiercely. Her tears flow just as abundantly as her laughter.... A strong woman is both soft and powerful. She is both practical and spiritual.... A strong woman in her essence is a gift to the world. I am a strong woman....... - Ritu Ghatourey

    I love women that are strong

    and unbreakable during the day and at work. In control of everything, on top of their responsibilities, but when they get home, their vulnerability shows and they want none of the same things as they do during the day or away from home. A total 180.
