Women are fragile and strong at the same time, and, unfortunately, they’re often underestimated.
The problem is that their strength isn’t as visible or obvious as the strength men have and take pride in. Still, it’s a powerful, incredible, and admirable quality that should definitely be more talked about.
Sometimes, the situations we find ourselves in test our strength. More often than not, they make us realize how strong we actually are.
More importantly, they make us see that we always have a choice and that we can choose to be strong.
In the moment you put down that phone and decided not to respond to his text, you made a choice. You chose yourself, and you chose to show your strength.
In that moment, you showed self-respect and refused to settle for less than what you deserve. Despite being deeply in love with him, you chose to love yourself more.
You realized that you can’t change a man by loving him harder. You’re aware that he’s not the right man for you, but it doesn’t make it any less painful.
Despite all the times he hurt you, you wish him all the best… but he doesn’t get to have the best thing he ever could – you.
Someone who’ll just destroy something amazing doesn’t deserve to have it in the first place.
You’re done with those who just play games and toy with your emotions.
You’re not going to allow anyone to neglect or disrespect you, no matter how much you care about them.
You’re done with those who can’t recognize your worth or show you love.
You know that people who truly love you would put effort into making you feel loved.
Love isn’t about hurting the person who loves you, apologizing, and doing it all over again.
It’s about making an effort to treat the person you love the best you can because they deserve nothing less.
You’re done with waiting for replies and lame excuses. Now you’ve found the strength to be the one who uses the power of silence.
You’re not going to waste your time, energy, or words on those who don’t deserve it.
You loved, you forgave, you gave second chances, and you tried again.
But you know when it’s time to let go, turn around, and walk away without ever looking back.
There’s incredible power in letting go of those you love because they can’t reciprocate your feelings.
Unfortunately, that power comes with the inevitable pain of having to give up on those you still care about.
No matter how unavoidable the pain is, allowing it to destroy you is not.
That’s exactly why being both strong and fragile is such a rare yet special combination that not everyone can have.
A woman can have a gentle heart full of love, forgiveness, and understanding. But once someone hurts that heart, she becomes fierce.
A fierce woman knows no obstacles, and when she encounters one, she just learns how strong she really is. It doesn’t bring her down, it makes her see that she can do anything she puts her mind to.
If a man abuses you or doesn’t treat you the way you deserve, he’s not worthy of your love or attention.
Strong women know that, and they have to be strong because it hurts.
It sounds so easy when people say that you should walk away from those who don’t appreciate you.
But it’s actually really difficult, and that’s why only strong women can do it.
No human being can simply turn off their emotions just because they know they should.
If it was easy to stop loving someone who didn’t deserve it, we would never get stuck in toxic relationships.
Still, we have to understand that tolerating bad behavior can’t make things better. What’s more, it makes things even worse in the long run.
The longer you wait to end a relationship that’s not right for you, the more it will hurt once you finally do.
In addition, you’ll have to let someone make you miserable for much longer than you should.
Feelings can be confusing, and you can experience a lot of different emotions at the same time. But deep down, you always know what you must do.
He can love bomb you, but you can be fooled by sudden outbursts of affection.
You know that he’s just doing it to gain back the power and keep doing all the bad things he always did.
Those things actually led you to where you are now. But there were some good times, right?
You start thinking about them and remember all the times he was in such a good mood that he would promise you the world.
He swore that you’d have the life you always dreamed of.
It never actually happened though, did it? Making promises is easy, it’s keeping them that requires effort.
Things didn’t work out the way you hoped they would, but I hope you realize that it’s for the best.
Sometimes things have to unfold differently than we planned so that we can learn something.
Regardless of how much you love a man and want to be with him, you don’t really need him.
All you need is actually already there, in you. Once you realize that, you can experience true love.
Someone who can’t appreciate you is just blocking the way for someone who will. Don’t be afraid of being alone and starting afresh.
True love doesn’t abandon or humiliate you. Loving someone isn’t supposed to be hard.
It’s not supposed to hurt because when true love encounters difficulties, it finds solutions.
I don’t know how we started thinking that emotionally abusive behavior is normal…
When something puts your self-worth and safety into question, you need to run away from it.
If you have to ask for love, you aren’t loved, and you need to say goodbye and walk away.
Stand up for yourself, and you’ll be standing up for every woman who’s experienced the same mistreatment as you have.
There’s not a man in the world who has the right to make you feel bad about yourself or not good enough.
Even if you’re deeply in love with him, you can’t allow him to destroy you with his lack of love.
Don’t answer his calls and don’t respond to his messages. Stay strong and love yourself more than you love him.
