It is no secret that every woman finds themselves a bit insecure. That is because there are certain things they know they can’t do. Their strength and ability are limited to those things they can only emotionally, physically, and mentally handle. However, it does not mean that they are not qualified to stand out from the rest of the crowd. Even if tons of anxiety and stress comes along the way, a therapist would agree that building up the best assets can potentially impact a woman’s societal role.
She Has Faith In Herself
A woman that understands who she is and what she wants is precious. That is because she does not limit herself in finding and achieving her own set of dreams. The faith she has in herself is a type of asset that does not allow others to hold her down because she believes in her abilities.
John Grohol, PsyD, wrote, “People with a good and healthy self-esteem are able to feel good about themselves for who they are, appreciate their own worth, and take pride in their abilities and accomplishments. They also acknowledge that while they’re not perfect and have faults, those faults don’t play an overwhelming or irrationally large role in their lives or their own self-image (how you see yourself).”
She knows she can handle and make way for things based on how she perceives it. The faith that a strong woman has does not allow negativity in her life. She doesn’t need any support from anyone, nor does she seek for approval of what she does. A strong woman stands out from the rest because she makes her own decisions with confidence. She is not afraid to stand by her choices, and she is not scared of pointing that out.
She Values Respect And Not Attention
A strong woman stands out from the rest because she knows she does not need anyone’s attention. She never feels interested in begging for someone else’s love. Every time she knows she is unwanted, she immediately leaves the situation and never allows herself to stay in it for too long. She has a clear mindset of how she wants others to treat her. Yes, some people sometimes fail to understand her and often misinterpret her actions, but she does not care. She values respect more than compliments because she knows it lasts longer than minutes of fame. With that, a strong woman does not allow herself to get locked up in a toxic environment where she becomes unappreciated.
She Lifts People Up
The most significant asset of a strong woman that makes her stand out is her ability to lift people. That instead of creating a drama, she radiates everyone with positivity. She is always open to helping others by encouraging them to show their potentials. She also hates gossips and negativity. She spends more time in lending a hand to those individuals who are in need. She is a type of woman that stands by people’s side through ups and downs. She knows how tough it is to work alone; that is why always make sure that she will always be there when someone needs a helping hand. She is a woman that can turn heads around because she listens, cares, and offers support.
A woman that is not afraid to cry her heart out is a fantastic individual. That is because she knows that crying is not a representation of weakness, but rather a sign of strength. Crying, for her, is an essential part of knowing when she should pause and move forward again. She knows that her tears are not a symbol of failure, but rather an indication of an in-depth realization that she needs rest.
Clinical psychologist Stephen Sideroff, PhD, said, “Crying activates the body in a healthy way.” He added, “Letting down one’s guard and one’s defenses and [crying] is a very positive, healthy thing.”
When a woman cries, she realizes the moment when she needs to pick herself up so she can be ready to heal. For her, crying symbolizes her faith in herself. It is her way of acknowledging that things in life are often challenging. With that kind of emotional stability and mental perseverance, she becomes confident in finding reasons not to quit.
There are tons of things that lock a woman’s mind into a black hole. However, a strong woman does not allow herself to get imprisoned with negative thoughts. She wants to free her mind from the unwanted energy that does not contribute to her overall development. She knows that she can’t control things, so she decides to move on.
Michelle Roya Rad, MA, PsyD, LCP, gives emphasis on working on forgiveness. She wrote, “Whether it is self-forgiveness or forgiving others, this is a must-do for any healing to happen. Self-forgiveness usually has to do with letting go of the guilt and shame, and forgiving others has to do with cutting any negative attachment to people and freeing yourself from their influence.”
However, she never forgets. She uses the experience and heartaches she gets to properly manage things in her life, such as relationship and commitment. She stands out from the rest because she forgives and does not aim for revenge. She is confident enough to handle things without hurting other people.
A woman that knows her worth always makes a difference. Be that kind of woman and empower others as well.
