Become a stronger woman
Many women can be their own worst enemies. Women are constantly comparing themselves to other women, trying to be the perfect partner, mother, friend, sister or colleague. All this pressure women put on themselves doesn’t make them a stronger woman, it makes them more vulnerable and susceptible to failure.
This sounds more complicated than it is. A woman is many things but no woman is the same. There are no limitations on what your definition of a woman is. Are you a caring mother? Are you a happy feminist? Are you a sports fanatic? Accept your definition of the word woman, and do not let others change that definition.
A stronger woman is one who not only knows what she wants but has learnt how to get it, and this has nothing to do with material things. Becoming a stronger woman is easier than you think and takes just 5 little steps, which you can begin doing today to make you a stronger woman tomorrow.
Step 1: Strong women define the word ‘WOMAN’ on their own terms. This sounds more complicated than it is. A woman is many things but no woman is the same. There are no limitations on what your definition of a woman is. Are you a caring mother? Are you a happy feminist? Are you a sports fanatic? Accept your definition of the word woman, and do not let others change that definition.
Step 2: Strong women are healthy women, both inside and out. A strong woman does not judge herself by her weight. She does not look at her reflection and loath what she sees. A strong woman eats for her health, not her weight. She exercises because it makes her feel strong, feel happy and feel alive.
Step 3: Strong women do not judge other women for their choices. Accepting that everyone will choose the path that is right for them is a major step in becoming a strong woman. Mistakes are always made along the journey to becoming stronger, but these mistakes are truly yours and should hold no regrets.
Step 4: Strong women determine their own balance and values in life. This area is all about comparing your life to those around you. No one lives the perfect life and everyone holds different values which determine the way you live yours. Write down what you value most and teach yourself to live by these. Tell yourself that you no longer need to worry if your friends and family are doing it differently to you. They have their values and you have yours and by prioritising, the stress of no longer being perfect starts to fade.
Step 5: Strong women understand what gives them positive energy. It is easy to say remove negative energy from your life but harder to do. The best way to begin the process of living within your positive energy is to know what gives you this energy in the first place. Each day, watch your emotions/feelings and soon you will be a pattern of what gives you energy and what takes this energy away. When you understand this, you can slowly make decisions in your life that allow you to be involved in energy giving, not energy taking activities.
