    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.

    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.
