Women vs Men

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!

  1. Love it Sadje! I found my true strength as my marriage broke up and afterward, when I had to depend only upon myself to handle everything. Turned out, I was good at running my own life! โค๏ธ

    1. Thanks David. I wrote this post when I started my blog. Obviously it didnโ€™t get much exposure. So I edited it and re-posted it for this prompt. And obviously I believe that women should believe in themselves and celebrate their strength.

        1. Yes, thatโ€™s true in some cultures but not all. In third world countries, the number of women dying in childbirth has brought down the average considerably.


  2. We are strong in many ways, but in others we are weak. And we could say exactly the same about men. neither is superior, we all bring something to the table.
    Great post, Sadje. Thank you.

  3. My daughter is shorter than me, but due to going to a gym and looking after her health and eating good food, she can actually lift a car. I do believe, woman and men and any gender, really both have the potential for physical strength and mental ability. It is all about the genes we are dealt, the food and love and rest and peace given to that frame.

      1. That is why we must always be kind, even to the [add expletives here] who are unkind, because someone has to turn the tide. I’m someone, I know a someone and another someone… are you a kind someone?

          1. I do kindness a lot at work, to those that are in the midst of their unkindness. I’ve been pinched, punched, scratched and kicked by those that cannot help themselves or have no grasp on reality. Still, I will not stoop to their level, for thankfully I have sanity (although bonkers at times). I have been know to tell others at what level they’re at and always report each incident. Still, it is what it is.

  4. There are obvious differences between women and men, but I would be willing to compare my mental strength to any woman. I can see you taking pride in being a strong woman, as I think that life can be much harder on women than men.

  5. Even though I can do many if not most of the things most men can, I have difficulty truly believing women are stronger or better in any way. Perhaps I know too many silly women. It’s an issue I think about a lot in order to conclude otherwise since it’s obviously self-harming.

  6. I think women are often emotionally stronger at a younger age than women, but many men grow into strength as they get older. We don’t stay the same. Men don’t stay the same. Women become more adult much earlier than men, but over the years, we equalize.

    But they still never see dirt.

  7. Thank you for writing this post! Your point of view is indeed inspiring. However, I do think that not all women are the same, nor are men.

    Instead of using (All men/women), we should understand that we’re all humans yet all of us are different in a way. I understand that all women have something in common, which is being physically different from the man and that’s okay. In the end, we complete each other.
