“She made broken look beautiful
and strong look invincible.
She walked with the Universe
on her shoulders and made it
look like a pair of wings.”
― Ariana Dancu
Strong women, we make the world go round. We put ourselves out there every day, pushing our boundaries, expanding our horizons, extending support and nurturing, balancing between being a badass and embracing our vulnerable sides.
People respect and admire us for our confidence, accomplishments, and ability to take on the world – but they forget that we need love and support too.
Here are 11 reasons strongest women get hurt the most in life:
1). You are a role model
“The worst part about being strong is that no one ever asks if you’re okay.”
If you’re a strong woman, people look up to you and come to you for advice and help in times of crisis.
Since you’re aware of the inspirational role you are playing in people’s life, you most often show your vulnerable side and deal with your stuff on your own and this leads to exhaustion.
2). You are always there for others
If you’re a strong woman, you are empathetic. You feel the struggles and pain of people around you and you want to help.
You always love and give from all your heart and don’t expect anything in return.
But at the end of the day, you would like someone to provide you the support and nurturing that you deserve.
3). You are authentic
Strong women are authentic. They are self-aware. They are insanely passionate and follow their own heart.
They do not conform to rules and do what they feel is right.
They are not afraid to be different as long as they are true to themselves.
This opens them up to a lot of criticism from people who don’t get her rebellious spirit.
4). You are unapologetic
Strong women would admit when they are wrong but they won’t apologize for who they are.
They are unapologetically themselves and won’t change to please your ego or whims or fancies.
5). You don’t settle
Strong women know what they bring to the table and therefore they want to be with someone who matches her effort.
They love with no holds barred and are very nurturing for their loved ones. But they are not afraid to walk out of the relationship if they feel they have had enough and they are not getting what they deserve.
But it hurts them to give up on anyone.
6). You love with all your heart
Strong women love with all their heart. Their love is unconditional; they don’t play mind games with you.
They are looking for mature, pragmatic love. They give you space to be yourself. They become your best friend, biggest cheerleader and toughest critic.
More often than not, people don’t know what to do with this kind of love and don’t get her depths.
7). You take a lot of chances
Strong women have had their heartbroken so many times that it does not scare them anymore.
They know they can survive any heartbreak or disappointment and for them, it is more important to go after what they want even if they fail than spending their life in regret.
They chase their wildest dreams and they would rather get hurt than not take a chance at something that could be great.
