The other day I heard a guy tell a woman that because she was strong that she would never find a husband. I don’t understand why he said that at all. What does her being strong have to do with her finding a man. I feel a man and woman should compliment each other. I think everyone is strong in different ways. Plus there is nothing wrong with a woman having standards and expectations that she wants her husband to meet. Just like there isn’t a problem with a man having standards and expectations that he wants his wife to meet. I don’t think it is okay for him to assume that she won’t get a husband because of her personality or expectations.
I personally want my daughter to be strong. I want her to challenge the person who comes to her life. The person should challenge her as well. The person she is with should just match her equally. They should bring out the best in her. I don’t think she should ever feel like she should have to lower herself for anyone. If anyone worry to imply that she should they would be wrong. She doesn’t have to be weak to catch a man. A man doesn’t have to do it so why should a woman. I hope she makes the person she is with want to be better and I hope they want her to be better. I always tell my daughter there is nothing wrong with being strong. Strong doesn’t mean you aren’t open to people. It just means you know what you want and the people whom you want in your circle. You are sure of what you deserve and what you want out of life. I want my daughter to not take anyone’s mess and no she is deserves someone who loves and respects her no matter what.
There is nothing wrong with a woman being strong. I just feel that if a man can’t handle it he should leave the woman he considers to be strong alone. Go and find someone that is meant for him instead of going around and telling a woman that because she is strong she won’t find a man. That is not his call to make. No one says that to a man so it shouldn’t be said to a woman.
