Being Soft While Being Strong
Usually, most people believe that in order to be strong, you must be tough, secure, hard, not feeling anything, or be a bad ass, and that is not always the case. You can be soft while being strong. You can be vulnerable, be open, and be loving towards yourself and others while being strong. The truth is, obstacles should only help mold you into being a better person. Usually, when struggle and disappointment occurs, we put up walls, trust issues occur, and more importantly, we don’t allow ourselves to receive, give, and be loved.
I write this blog because I have seen life’s difficulties, heartbreak, trials, and tribulations harden women to the point where they have become bitter. And that bitterness hardens your mind, heart, and takes a toll on your spirit. It creates an ugliness that permeates from within and is evident in the treatment of yourself and how you treat others. Fortunately, it is never too late to change. It is never too late to forgive yourself or more importantly, forgive the person that may have hurt you. There’s no need to be bitter. You must let go of disappointment, let go of your pain, and let go of the bitterness so you can be a woman of respect, a woman of resilience, and a woman that loves herself.
