“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.” ~ Diane Mariechild
Being a strong woman is not about behaving like a man. Instead, it is about embracing your femininity and showing it to the world, while making sure that you take control of the things that you’re doing and get them done.
Being a strong, independent woman is all about being in charge of your life and embracing your femininity.
Let’s go through the traits that define her!
15 TRAITS OF A STRONG WOMAN
1. Strong women know who they really are
They have already identified their needs and their goals. They always put their dreams over anything else. They are not embarrassed to show their genuine self. Although life is a fast evolving process, strong women will continue to grow while staying true to themselves. They do it partly by giving time to let their interests and passion develop. Another reason for their success in being honest about their identity is that they recognize their strengths and use them as leverage to be successful in life.
2. Strong women stick it out for themselves
They are truly confident and know a good cause when they come across one. They would show intense passion for their advocacies, something that vulnerable adolescent girls should have these days as they deal with peer pressure and bullies.
3. Strong women like to challenge themselves
They want to keep growing and improving, which is why they are keen on pushing themselves more even onto new boundaries. They make sure that they don’t only do good, but better.
4. Strong women always have room for improvement
Despite their strength, confidence, and capabilities, they don’t slack off and say “I’m better than everyone else.” They don’t grow complacent for the sake of improving themselves. If they don’t know certain things, they don’t hesitate to ask questions and get answers. Strong women are not ashamed about still having to learn a lot of things, but this doesn’t mean that they are not willing to teach what they have learned to others. Although they are confident about what they can do, they don’t let it stop them from learning more.
5. Strong women know how to be happy
They are determined to stay happy and jovial in their everyday life. Their principle in life is to always stay positive. They know how blessed they are and how to be thankful for it. Strong women are noted for making things fun, whatever it is that they are doing. This is how they ensure that their family and loved ones are happy. While they are serious about achieving their goals, they do have a great sense of humour.
