14 Aug What Strength Really Means
“Weaker vessels”, so we have been called. We are well believed to lack ability in important areas. That’s not only unfair, but it is utterly ridiculous. Sometimes we attempt to defend ourselves from this worldview. This leads to us stepping into masculinity as a means of defense…
As women, we have the full capacity to engage both the left and right sides of our brain. We can be very intuitive and at the same time logical. This is one of the many reasons we are able to balance our many demanding responsibilities. This is an advantage over the menfolk, who have been conditioned by society to show no emotion.
We have no idea the power we wield unless we allow ourselves to embrace our energy. Now let’s talk about what strength really is. Strength means different things to different people. For one, it could be power, another, beauty and charm and for others, it could be wealth. Strength has absolutely nothing to do with physicality; rather it’s a thing of the mind.
Strength for the woman is the influence. How is she able to steer the ship of a situation? If she speaks or acts, what difference does it make? How is she impacting her community and the world at large?
Strength for a woman is independence. Does she pave her own way or is she highly dependent on how society influences and sways her? What does she bring to the table? Does she even know who she is?
Most Importantly, real strength is personal. It’s what you do with your life. It’s about being confident in your own strength, embracing who you are, and being the best “you” you can be.
