"When a woman recognizes the powerful pull that her sexuality has, she learns that it becomes even more of a power when harnessed. Understanding how to leverage your inner forces to deal with the outside world is a skill not many sharpen. "
1) Establish Their Independence
We live in a world where money equates to power. When you depend on someone financially, this presents the chance for them to assert their power over you. Strong women always have their own means to ensure their own survival. Money brings stability and without stability, it is hard to be independent, let alone develop the gifts you need to that will serve you in advancing upward. Statistics show that 7 of every 10 women will live in poverty at some point in their lives. I’m sure this lingers from the historical reinforcement that women had to be depended on men for financial freedom. However, in the present day, women have many more avenues of opportunities to secure their own wealth. Not having money, very commonly, pressures women to stay in unhealthy relationships and definitely demotes self-esteem. Establish your independence, not too make anyone feel insignificant, but simply to ensure your own survival.
2) Recognize Their Feminine Power
Women from the beginning of time have been endowed with a special power. That power is the ability to seduce through sexual prowess. Mostly, no matter the other qualities we possess, women will largely be evaluated based on our sexuality. When a woman recognizes the powerful pull that her sexuality has, she learns that it becomes even more of a power when harnessed. Understanding how to leverage your inner forces to deal with the outside world is a skill not many sharpen. It looks like: walking in a room and being able to command it without even speaking a single word; being able to use the attention that you solicit from others to promote goodness; or using emotional intelligence to build bonds with others and form community. People often underestimate how influential feminine power can be. And while it is well to learn to use this power, it is noble to learn to tame this power and use it for the greater good. When you harness your feminine power and step out into the world, you must have integrity and standards to lead with. Own it; don’t let it own you.
3) Know When to Walk Away
Do not let bad toxic people perch on your soul. The beautiful thing about being a woman is having the maturity and confidence to usher people you really don’t need in your life, out. And doing so doesn’t mean you are being argumentative, mean, or unkind. It simply means you are keeping the space open for goodness to manifest in your life. Don’t let people stay around who make you feel like you are hard to love, or paralyze your growth. Know when to walk away and learn not to feel apologetic about it for it is an act of securing your own welfare. As women, saying no to people truly shouldn’t be the beginning of negotiation. Don’t negotiate with people who disturb your peace of mind.
