We’ve all met a strong woman before. You know, the type with the confidence and zest that lights up any room she enters.
She knows exactly what she wants in life and how she’s going to get there.
And if you’re lucky enough to be in her inner circle, she wants to help you achieve your goals and get the most out of your life.
And despite what most people are led to believe when they see her walking confidently in the street, she isn’t cold or “bitchy”. She’s just careful and selective with who she lets get close to her.
From my experience, these type of women have similar characteristics and habits that allow them to be the way they are.
Here are 7 of them:
1) They know how to ask for help
A little surprised with this one? After all, a strong and independent woman doesn’t need help from anyone, right?
A strong woman realizes that to achieve anything in this life, you need help from others. You can’t do it all alone.
They’re not afraid to ask for advice or for help as it’s the only way she’ll move forward in life.
I mean, humans working together is why our civilization has progressed to such lengths.
She won’t take advantage of others either. She knows that to get help from others, you need to give help whenever you’re able to.
It’s how the cycle of things work.
2) See the good in others
Every person has a piece of good in them. You just need to find it.
A strong woman knows that most people have good intentions. That’s why she’s so polite to all those desperate men who approach her for her number.
Most of all, she treats people with respect and kindness. Just like Plato said, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”
3) Live in the moment
A strong and independent women realizes that the past doesn’t exist, the future hasn’t arrived, and the only thing that really matters is the present moment.
Every moment has something to be grateful for, and you’ll be much happier if you always strive to find it.
She also believes that the present moment is where the future is created. If you work hard and stick to your priorities and goals, your future self will be incredibly thankful for it.
4) Be the anti-drama
Gossiping about others because it feels good? Please!
A strong woman hates this kind of negative energy. She knows these toxic people are soul sucking vampires and there’s no reason they won’t be bad mouthing you behind your back.
She prefers to talk about meaningful topics, like, what’s your purpose in life and how technology is going to change our future.
5) Choose a partner, but don’t be afraid to be alone
The best relationships are ones that allow you to grow and be free. A strong woman knows that unhealthy attachments are thwart with danger.
You don’t need to rely on someone else to make you happy. You need to be happy with yourself first before you allow someone else into your life.
This is why a strong woman isn’t afraid of being alone. She’ll be happy anyway.
But if you can add to her happiness, then go ahead and come on in. But if you’re bringing in toxic energy, then you need to get out of this woman’s way.
6) Plan pockets of enjoyment for yourself
We all have individual passions and activities that make us happy. A strong woman makes time for these because it’s essential to her wellbeing.
If she’s able to spend time meditating, or walking on the beach alone, she’ll be a happier and brighter person when she’s around others.
7) She knows what she wants
Because she spends time with herself and is comfortable in her own skin, she knows exactly what she really wants in life.
It’s not material wealth. A strong woman knows that this is superficial and will fail to bring lasting happiness.
Instead, she strives to create meaning and creativity in her work that helps others, because that’s what makes her happy.
Her dreams and the path to achieve them are cemented in her mind. There’s no self-doubt, if she wants something, she’ll go for it. She’ll also seek help from others but won’t rely on that help.
If she has to do it herself, she’ll simply do the best she can.
