If you ever wonder about her confidence it was the moment she realized to love herself the first.
If you ever wonder about her ambition and how she takes everything she wants with a smile and a bit of cockiness, it was the promise she made to herself that she wouldn’t take no for an answer and she wouldn’t believe anyone who told her she couldn’t.
If you ever wonder why she walks away the moment any guy challenges her, it’s because she promised herself long ago, she’d never get caught up in games and it was there she learned to make her own rules.
And if the thought ever crosses your mind of why she’s single and you think you know it’s out of bad luck, think again. It’s the promise she made to her younger self she’d never again settle for less than she deserved or tolerate bullshit.
And if you ever wonder why she questions you it was in the moment she learned the only person she can trust is herself.
So the next time you see a strong woman and wonder where it all came from, it was in every person of her past that motivated her to never be weak again.
It was the promise she made to that same girl who had black tears running down her face, that she said, ‘no one will ever make us feel this way again.’ It was at that moment she never looked back.
It was in every moment after she never jumped at their texts. Because the ghosts from her past came knocking and she stopped answering.
And it was at that moment they all began to regret it because when a weak girl realizes she deserves more, she becomes a woman who never settles for less.
