Behind the mask of strong independent woman

Behind the mask of strong independent woman

First of all, it’s not a face mask. Being strong and independent woman is a mask of the soul. Behind this mask hides:

  1. A girl who is tired of being strong all the time; tired of being stronger than everyone. She is exhausted.
  2. A girl who is tired of wearing a macho face every day. She needs to be treated as a woman by the right man. The man she chooses and expects to explore her feminine side with him and with him only.
  3. A girl who needs someone to take care of her. She is a human being at the end, and she is tired of taking care of everyone and everything.
  4. A girl who wants someone to get things done for her. Yes, a strong independent woman needs someone to take her car to the service appointment, take her to the doctor, do her laundry, and make appointments at the saloon.
  5. A mature girl who is driven by high sense of responsibility and loyalty.
  6. A girl who also needs a break from responsibility and work for a change. She wants to be pampered with delicacy.
  7. A girl who needs to learn that it’s okay to be bored and sick and frustrated.
  8. A girl who needs to be assured that it is okay when plans don’t go as planned. Things change and one should always be able to adapt.
  9. A girl who need a true gentleman to embrace her but not suffocate her dreams.  A girl who wonders: is it really hard to find someone who understands that her success doesn’t have to overshadow his?
  10. A girl who needs encouragement as much as she gives it. She definitely needs a lover to push her towards success.  She seeks a lover who truly believes in her abilities and her goals.
  11. A very fragile girl who needs shelter. She’s looking for a backbone that supports her during harsh times. She is seeking a comfort zone where she is not shy to speak out her fears.
  12. A girl who is demanding the society to acknowledge her achievements rather than accusing her for being different.
  13. A girl who is so determined to add something to the world, and refuses to fit into typical boring frames assigned to women by the society.
  14. A girl who deserves appreciation for standing out for her right to live life as a full complete human being and not a half human being.
  15. A girl who is seeking society affirmation of her achievements. A strong independent woman needs to feel that her efforts to give meaning to her life and the lives of others around her are being recognized.
  16. A girl who is trying to prove that she deserves to be treated equally with the man. She has the same qualities and capabilities of a man, and her accomplishments support her case.

At the end, you should know by now that behind every rigid strong independent woman is a passionately beating heart. A strong woman can have a heart that is full of love and wants to live life to the fullest with the right companion. So please, can you give her a space?

Grey’s Anatomy: The Valuable Life Lessons of the Show

Published

on

By

The doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital are up for more shifts, as ABC announced the renewal of Grey’s Anatomy for two more seasons, which means the show will run for at least through its 17th season!

This makes the show the longest running medical drama of all time.

The TV series is certainly one of the best dramas to follow, not only is it entertaining, but the issues tackled in the episodes from racism to sexism and violence, are what make the show a high rated one.

Now, if you aren’t into Grey’s Anatomy, here are the life lessons that I, personally, learned from the show. Ones that will get you encouraged to watch the series, and if you’re a fan already, then you will cherish the following:

1- You are the sun, and no one should steal your shine.

It doesn’t matter how much you love someone, you should always set your priorities straight. Don’t let anyone’s wants eclipse your dreams, because you are the sun and you make your own needs come true.

2- No one will ever love you as much as your parents.

The people who raised you will always have the most love for you. And even if your relationship with one of them is unstable, find it in your heart to forgive them.

3- If you love someone, tell them, no matter what.

I’ll just leave Mark Sloan’s quote in here, “If you love someone, you tell them. Even if you’re scared that it’s not the right thing. Even if you’re scared that it’ll cause problems. Even if you’re scared that it will burn your life to the ground, you say it, and you say it loud and you go from there. ”

4- It’s okay to be dark and twisty at times.

Meredith Grey taught us that it’s okay to have dark thoughts at times, to feel vulnerable and weak. It doesn’t matter if you have someone by your side, to always grab you when you are at your lowest. To remind you of the things in you, that are worthy of love. The relationship between Meredith and Derek, is quite the example for two people loving each other unconditionally, despite one’s flaws.

5- You fight for the one you love.

Even when it’s against all odds, and against all the expectations. If you love someone, you fight for them. It may seem like the impossible, but you have got to show them that you care and that no burden, no matter how huge, can stand in your way. Again, look at Meredith and Derek and how they fought for each other across the years.

6- No running from relationships.

For that, I will leave the vows that Meredith and Derek promised each other, on their post it marriage. And remember, love each other even when you hate each other.

7. Sometimes, horrible people deserve forgiveness.

You always have to think of one’s actions from their place, no one is born obnoxious. I believe it is an acquired attitude from the things they have been through in life. If those people are met with compassion, they can change. Just look at Alex Karev, and how love and friendship changed his personality entirely.

The life lessons are countless, and the issues that the show discusses will leave you stunned. My advice is to binge watch the show, that will certainly change your perspective on A LOT.

When it is You Who Sometimes Hold Yourself Back

Published

By

How does one hold their own self back? simple, you overthink, you over-analyze and you doubt yourself. You doubt it so hard that it starts to listen to you, and I for one, am a victim of my own self.

It started a long while ago, but the effects of it wasn’t that apparent. It wasn’t until I started working that I have realized what my own mind is doing to me.

When I was in college, I doubted my capabilities, and never thought that I was smart enough to do better. Always considered myself, as a regular. A regular student, and a regular person. And that caused me to fail behind, big time.

Now that I graduated and working, the doubts are more, even if I get praised for work, I still consider my work as ‘not enough’. And that is causing me to breakdown every once in a while. I overthink every detail, and now it’s not only affecting my work, but also my relationships with the ones I love dearly.

It is all in my head, I now know that quite well, the trick though, is not only to recognize this, but to fight it!

Fight the thoughts in your head that tell you ‘you’re incapable’, fight them with all your might and find the strength to think positively and highly about yourself.

One thing I also started doing, and is helping me a lot, is keeping an agenda with me everyday, documenting all the things that I have done; thus keeping track of my performance.

I remind myself everyday that I’m smarter than I think, and I am doing better than I believe.

Overthinking isn’t only holding you back, but it is also causing a mental toll that you are too young to bear. Learning to refute it is the key, also having someone supportive to remind you what a good person you are, is important.

It is that kind of support and encouragement that got me through senior year, and is helping me excel at work despite my dark thoughts.

I pray everyday for my mind to go easy on me, and I certainly wish the same for all the troubles minds out-there…

On love, Conditions, Obstacles and Irrationality

Published

By

Do we fall instantly in love? No, because that wouldn’t be real, we can get a crush on someone and by time, that crush develops. But can we stop it? That click you get at the sight of that one person, is it stoppable?

I believe not. Because once you click, there’s no going back.

Let me count with you the many clicks that happen in reaction to that person’s most little actions, they laugh, click. They smile, click. They blush, click. The tease you, click. They make you laugh, click, click. They make you cry, cl..ick, click. They mess with their hair, click. They mess with yours, click.

Let me put some math in there to make this article sounds smart, the amount of clicks you get per day is directly proportional to the time you’ll fall in love, in other words, the more the clicks are, the faster you’ll fall in love.

This is love, and below are the conditions:

Girl code

You’re not to click with your best friend’s ex, because this is the rule, you can’t fall in love with your friend’s ex, but what if that one person is the one you’re meant to be with, what if that person brings you happiness and ultimate joy, peace and serenity, what if that person is the one? And you never got to find out because girl code. Guess you just have to deal with it, right?

Your ex

They said your ex had become an ex for a reason, true, what if it was bad timing? What if it was immaturity? What if now is a good time and we’re mature? Guess you won’t find out because ‘integrity’ and ‘dignity’ shall stop you.

Your complete opposite

That person that everyone tells you is not right for you, who’s different in almost everything and does things the opposite way, you fight a lot and people speak about how you two could never end up together and you start believing them, after all it’s what everyone says, except for your heart who thinks the complete opposite. But who listens to their heart anymore?

The irrationality is in clicking with someone from the first place and you know isn’t just right, clicking with someone who goes against the rules, how could you allow your heart to sink so deep? How did you allow your mind to drift to places to where that person is? How can you stop loving someone when all what you do is think of him? Why think of him? How could you?

Silly, isn’t it? To ask someone to stop clicking, to set boundaries to the one thing in life that happens spontaneously, the one thing that has the power to get you off your feet and up in the air, but then comes these boundaries and get hold of your feet, and bring you down to your knees. Because conditions, because rationality.
