I Am a Strong Woman

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,537 People

    I am fully aware of the fact

    that my headstrong ideas make me intimidating to some people, but I am not proud. I don't glorify myself and I don't think I'm God. I feel its so easy to be judged as being a *****, when I'm simply my own person. I get the impression that it has a little bit to do with people...

    It is what I keep telling myself,

    By the time I was going to college I was

    escaping a father who called me 'retard' instead of my name and who would hurt me physically. At this time my mom was attempting to get a divorce (that would fail) and my non-immediate family was finding out the truth of the last 18 years. They all asked why me, why did he hate...

    Strength is something to be admired,

    I am a strong woman. This is a statement

    that I have been certain of over the course of my not inconsiderable years on this planet. It was something I prided myself on, and was a cornerstone in my perception of self. And pride cometh before the fall I suppose. Over the past six months, this very trait seemed to abandon...

    How To Be A Strong Independent Woman..

    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......

    Everywhere I went in town,

    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...

    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.
