    She Stands To Greet The World

    I am a strong woman. I am intelligent, compassionate, gentle and wise (enough to know I don't know everything).   I love people with my entire being once I know they can be trusted; sometimes I trust them for no reason at all, and try to love them still.   I fought hard for...

    I wasn't born the woman I am today,

    but that makes me no less a woman...... No one has the right to judge me, because no one really knows what I've been through...... They might have heard the stories, but they didn't feel what I've felt in my heart...... I am a strong woman......

    I get beat up by life every day

    but I keep fighting back. The way I was born, I am very sensitive emotionally and physically but it doesn't steal my joy or emotional strength, my willpower or my drive. Just this past weekend, life gave me another double-whammy weekend but I stuck it out and overcame the storms...

    a weak man can't love a strong woman.

    He wouldn't know what to do with her.

    At least, I'd like to be.

    I'm actually quite weak and suffering from depression, as I should be because the man who made a commitment to me has ignored me and left me in the most hurtful and childish way. It's hard to be strong when you trusted someone and believed they were your soul mate. I still...

    they knew me as Johnny's girl. I could hear people in the store whisper who I was, and sometimes I'd see guys looking at me and see their friends shake their heads. "Nah, that's Johnny's girl". I liked that. I know it sounds weird, and possessive probably, but I liked that. It...

    Strength is not about muscle.

    Its about how we deal with our lives and what it consists of. Its about knowledge and will power. How we remain. I am a strong woman and everything that's made me who I am today, I am thankful for.

    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.
