I Am Tired Of Always Being The Strong One

I Am Tired Of Always Being The Strong One

We all do. Yes, I do. I too have my fears, my insecurities, my nightmares. It’s perfectly legitimate to cherish the desire of being with someone. There’s no wrong in craving for someone to hold you, to take care of you. When two souls unite, it’s a blessing, it’s not something to be ashamed of. It’s not a weakness. It’s rather a strength, it’s the power of love.

I am exhausted from being this strong woman. I am independent economically but I don’t wish to remain psychologically strong anymore. Yes, I desire to be caressed by someone.

I need someone who would take me in his arms and cuddle me, who, at the end of a bad day will be there for me, take me in his arms and tell me that things will be alright, who will look at my messed up face and tell me how beautiful I look, who will love me without my make- up, who will admire me for just the woman I am, not for the strength I have shown.

We have just one life. What’s the use of putting on garb and be the person I am actually not in reality?

I can’t hold on to this anymore.

I have grown indifferent to being this strong woman. A kiss and a hug to heal my wounds…yes I need them. Needing someone doesn’t mean that I have broken down. It means I am getting rejuvenated.

Yes, I can’t go on like this. We all do. Very few are willing to accept it. Yes, we all need this strong person. It’s okay if we are not strong always.
