Every day I get to hear women say, ‘I am a strong woman’ or ‘if you went through half what I have been through, you would not be alive.’ Well it could be true. I don’t know how you define who a strong woman is but personally that woman is a survivor. She is someone who has gone through thick and thin, braced the dry and bushy grass to grace and is someone who refused to give up despite how hard life, career, relationships, health and or poverty kicked her down.
Well Serena Williams is one definition of strong. I mean there are still sick-minded people who maintain she looks manly (sigh) but did you know she won the Australian Open whilst 11 weeks pregnant. I mean many women can’t, don’t or will not do anything when they are having their menses. She literally proved what dedication, work ethics and carrying on regardless of the situation is all about.
There’s a certain woman somewhere who loved with all she got but got bruised for giving out love. She sacrificed all she had for her partner who later pushed her aside or even kicked her to the curb. I know there’s a woman who laid her goals aside to help her better half grow to her level, but he outgrew her and went for the next catch. But she still picked herself up, kept her head up and survived. Strong women survive. Even when they are drowning in deep muddy waters and can’t seem to see what’s ahead of them, they somewhat swim and survive.
Don’t get me wrong though, being violent and loud doesn’t make you a strong woman.Neither does playing irrational hard to get.
