Strong women are good at handling just about everything life throws at them. Sometimes it’s a juggling act and the struggle is real, but they handle it because they pride themselves and define themselves by their strength and independence. One of the only things that really scares a strong woman is falling in love. This is because it requires her to go outside of her comfort zone in so many ways. It’s such an irony how really strong women are able to overcome really tough times in their career, but find it difficult to allow themselves enjoy the experience of falling in love, especially if they have been hurt before. Many just decide to focus on their career and forget about love.
These are some of the reasons why strong women find it hard to fall in love:
1. Strong women never settle.
They have very high expectations and standards and even when they really like someone, they’ll choose to walk away if that guy doesn’t treat them right. They know exactly what kind of person they deserve and nothing in the world can make them compromise on this.
2. They’re not afraid of speaking up.
They’re not afraid to tell someone what they did wrong or call someone out on their lies. This is why they’re often labeled ‘intimidating’ because they can stand up for themselves and will not hold back.
3. They don’t ‘need’ a man.
A strong woman doesn’t ‘need’ a man. They might feel a need for love and affection in their life but they will never need a man to feel complete. Love is always a choice to them, not something they desperately need to fill their lonely hearts. They’re perfectly content with the life they have and love can only be a good addition to their life, not a necessity.
