Successful women are picky. Successful women have very high standards. We’ve been hurt in the past, so we know that we have to wait for someone who is absolutely right for us.
Here’s to the girls who would rather stay wild and wander than settle down. The one’s who have said, “I like you, but I love to travel so as much as I’d like to stay I have to go.” The girls who don’t want a “normal” life and actually refuse to live it.
Can the two personalities co-exist? Can an introverted-librarian turned nerdy-engineer be satisfied with a burning desire for adventure? Can we go to day jobs in the corporate world and still fulfill our passions?
They were right when they told us to be complete, not to seek someone to complete us.
When you feel happy and whole, and are filled with love inside, you will want to share your love. You will want to learn and play and create with a loved one. Sharing love is the most wonderful experience in life.
I’m letting go of a future that will never be. And right now I’m standing alone but I’ve never felt so good and strong in my entire life. Because along with letting go of the love I have for you I’m letting go of the pain you caused me.
Thank you for making me strong. You taught me strength. You taught me how to be independent. You taught me how to stand up for myself and to not take any shit.
We need to get rid of the idea that an independent woman is someone who walks around scowling at every man on the street and has a heart of ice.
When you love a girl that’s fiercely independent, you learn that you can love her without changing her, but you still show her how wonderful it can be to be taken care of. And you learn that a woman’s strength does not, in any way lessen yours.
There are so many misconceptions about strong women. They can often feel misunderstood and difficult to love. This book shows a few different perspectives on how strong women live their lives differently and how they approach love.
