7. She deals with all her own issues alone.
She wouldn’t let anyone get a hint of the trouble she is going through, and that is why people feel comfortable with her. She has solutions to every problem, and she will never let anybody suffer unnecessarily. She will deal with all her emotions and issues alone, without looking for anybody else’s support.
She knows how to deal with difficult situations. She doesn’t get angry when others ask for help but she is all alone when she needs help herself. She doesn’t show her vulnerability, and she shields herself completely from other people and keeps up the act of everything being perfectly fine.
8. She knows everybody makes mistakes.
She knows people conspire, betray, and hurt you, but she doesn’t let others’ shortcomings and weaknesses make her lose faith in humanity. She believes in the power of forgiveness, and never makes other people suffer like they have made her suffer at times. She makes people believe in themselves by her goodness and kindness.
Even if she has shut herself down from the rest of the world, she doesn’t let others do it because she knows the importance of communication. A strong woman knows that no human being is perfect, and according to her, it is unfair to keep on making them suffer for their mistakes.
9. She goes the extra mile or two for the ones who come to her for help.
When it comes to the people she loves, she can do anything to protect them, and make them happy. She will not think twice before doing what needs to be done in order to bring a smile to their faces. The happiness of her loved ones is what matters to her the most, no matter what the cost.
But what about her, and her happiness? The unfortunate truth is that what she does for other people, she doesn’t always get it back; whenever she is in any trouble or difficult situation, she will handle it herself. No wonder strong women often feel so broken inside.
10. She gets affected physically when she resists being vulnerable.
A strong woman is so used to keeping everything on the inside, that after a point, she starts getting physically sick. Too much stress and pain makes her susceptible to heart diseases, and declining cardiovascular health. Constantly suppressing emotions end up making her heart weak.
The saddest part is, she does not only feel damaged inside, she actually does get damaged inside.
11. She derives her strength from past tragedies.
Strong women get extremely resilient after going through difficult and painful tragedies, so the next time you see a strong woman being strong, think about all the horrible things she must have gone through to be who she is today. She has been psychologically scarred in her past, but she is still powering through life.
Just because she is strong now, that does not mean she has forgotten her painful past; she still remembers it sometimes and feels sad and heartbroken. Because strong women do not talk about their painful pasts, they feel broken inside more often than not.
12. She strives to be happy.
She overcomes all the pain, and trauma she has experienced in her life and becomes her own sunshine and guiding light for others. And this is not the first time she is doing it. Happiness does not come naturally to her, so she has to work extra hard to find it. But she never gives up.
No matter what she has gone through in her past, she will continue to look for happiness, and will not stop until she finds it one day. If this doesn’t make her a strong woman, then what does?
It’s a cycle for her. She knows she will keep on shining, and her immense strength will never allow her to feel defeated or give up on life.
