I learned the hard way that I cannot always count on others to respect my feeling. Even if I respect theirs. Being a good person doesn't . As for others, you can only choose to accept them or walk away.
"A strong man can handle a strong woman. A weak man will say she has an attitude". i am a strong man and proud of it .and yes i love a strong and independent woman nothing like it . there's way too many weak men and not enough strong ones .
A strong women is one who feels deeply and loves fiercely. Her tears flow just as abundantly as her laugher. A strong woman is both soft and powerful, she is both practical and spiritual. A strong women in her essence is a gift to the word.
