When we compare the strength of men versus women, we realize that men may have more physical strength but women have the upper hand when it comes to mental strength.
I am talking about a woman who can stand on her own two feet. Who can brave the storms and hold her own. A woman who faces the challenges of life. Who takes the world head-on!
She would withstand tremendous pressure and not bend or break. It’s a woman who holds the family life together. It is she, who does the work of ten people without ( often) getting acknowledgment.
I am trying to be that woman. I want to be able to take care of myself, without having to depend upon others. I am aiming to fend for myself and my family when I need to. I want to travel alone and visit places that I have dreamed of. The feminist would ask: Why should it be a man’s job to look after the women in his life? Why can’t women look after themselves? The truth is that it’s usually the other way around. Women being the more organized of the two can plan and organize family life.
It is said that everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses. True, but what is called the weaknesses in a woman are her strong points.
1. She is emotional and that makes her empathetic and compassionate towards others, who are less fortunate, downtrodden, and weaker than herself. Women often take a stand for the powerless people of our society. The emotional side of a woman makes her strong enough to take on the defense of others weaker than herself.
2. A woman lacks physical strength but only a woman can bear and give birth to a child, a feat that a man cannot even imagine. The level of pain a woman goes through during childbirth is tremendous and she is( usually) ready to go through that again after a gap of some time. This speaks of the untold and unheralded strength of a woman.
3. She is easily upset. Cries at small things but laughs at smaller things too! If she didn’t have these qualities, how would she raise a family. Being a mother mainly consists of keeping sane. These emotional outbursts keep her sane and the family too.
To enumerate all the positive qualities of women would take me many hours, as she is so special a being!
But to sum it up, I would say that a strong woman, well-adjusted in her life is a force to be reckoned with. so: To you all women out there, I would say that stiffen that backbone of yours and stand up for yourself!
YOU ARE STRONG
