Here are ten wonderful things that you can learn from having a strong woman in your life.

10 Things You Can Learn From A Strong Woman

1. A strong woman will teach you courage.

‘Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.’ – Helen Keller

If you are able to stand strong in the face of danger, you probably have a strong supportive woman to thank at least in part for showing you what courage is. Mothers show us that we are still secure as we step away from them and they also show us how to dust ourselves of after a fall and try again.

2. A strong woman will teach you to love yourself.

‘It’s not your job to like me, it’s mine.’ – Byron Katie

Self-love is a skill that will take you far in your life. If you can love, respect and forgive yourself, you probably have a strong woman to thank who taught you to love yourself.

3. A strong woman will teach you to be independent.

‘I think the girl who is able to earn her own living and pay her own way should be as happy as anybody on Earth. The sense of independence and security is very sweet.’ – Susan B. Anthony

As you already read in our article 9 Things Never to Say to a Strong Woman, there are some things that an independently minded woman does not want to hear from you, for example ‘You can’t do that.’ Strong women can do anything that they set their minds to and if you believe that about yourself, you may have learned that from another strong woman.

4. A strong woman will teach you to choose kindness.

‘Kind words are short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.’ – Mother Teresa

There is a tradition in Chinese Buddhism called ‘filial piety’ which is the ‘virtuous act of being good to one’s parents; being respectful and courteous to one’s parents in honor of realizing and repaying one’s parents’ immense kindness and love for their child.’ The idea of repaying your parents and especially your mother or other strong female role models for their support is an attitude of gratitude that other cultures can embrace as well.

5. A strong woman will teach you how to trust your gut.

‘Never apologize for trusting your intuition. Your brain can play tricks, your heart can be blind, but your gut is always right.’ – Rachel Wolchin

Intuition will take you far in your life if you learn to hear what your gut is telling you. Women are tuned into when their inner Spidey Senses are tingling. If you can trust your gut, you probably have a strong woman to thank for learning this ability.

6. A strong woman will teach you to be a mother to others.

‘A woman is the full circle. Within her is the ability to create, nurture, and transform.’ – Diane Mariechild

The female role models that you’ve had have shown you how to demonstrate caring for others with your actions. Even if you are not a parent yourself, thanks to a strong woman you know how to embrace other people, support them in their growth, and then watch them as they go out and apply what they have learned on their own.

7. A strong woman will teach you to create happiness.

‘You grow up the day you have your first real laugh at yourself.’ – Ethel Barrymore

You can find happiness and joy anywhere, if you know how. Learning this skill from a strong woman is something that you can use many times a day by embracing the humor of a situation.

8. A strong woman will teach you that emotions are powerful.

‘Never be ashamed of how you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion you want.’ – Demi Lovato

Feeling emotional is not a weakness, it is a strength when you use those feelings to understand yourself. Anger, fear, joy and sadness often appear when you experience something that is important to you.
