Loneliness seems to be identified as the “silent killer,” especially with the suffocating effects of negative social media influences. However, loneliness is not always a troubling feeling to experience. Especially for women, lonely periods of their lives tend to reveal their strengths and greatest passions. In fact, a strong woman may experience loneliness far more often then she hopes for. The following are common reasons as to why a strong woman faces the treacherous journey of loneliness.
You don’t compromise on your principles
You know what is considered right and wrong, and stand your ground on your opinions and beliefs, regardless of who is attempting to change them. Your beliefs have built the foundation of who you are as an individual and you respect that your intentions and ideas are significant. This can be difficult for someone to admire if they have less integrity than yourself. They make feel weak in comparison to you.
You won’t entertain phoniness
Being a strong individual, you know your worth and appreciate the authentic attitude of the people you meet. Especially with today’s society, it’s difficult to handpick the number of genuine people you encounter in life. You don’t want any part of stereotypical conversations and friendships. You’d rather be alone than spend your time with people who aren’t true to themselves.
You are intense
Although a positive attribute for yourself, those who encounter you may take this as a negative sign. Being extremely confident and passionate in everything that you achieve is a quality you should lose. However, one who does not think highly of themselves may view this quality as incredibly intimidating. They also may be jealous that you possess such great courage, considering all you’ve encountered in your life.
You are content
Maybe you have that career you’ve worked hard for, or you are in school focusing on your degree. Whatever the case may be, you are entirely focused on your success and well-being. Because of this, you tend to disregard the aspects of your life that aren’t as significant to you at the moment; such as your relationships, dating, or friendships. This isn’t a horrible quality, but it can weaken your links with friendships you’ve maintained. Sometimes a break from yourself is a healthy distraction.
You are goal-oriented
When you are a strong woman, you tend to have your own goals and tasks to accomplish. You want to make the best of yourself and are dedicated to making a difference. Some people may see that this is your priority, and they may feel as if they aren’t as important. As always, focus on YOU!
