Sometimes the strongest women are the ones who love beyond all faults, cry behind closed doors and fight battles that nobody knows about.
This Is Why The Strongest Women Often Feel So Broken Inside
“She has fought many wars, most internal. The ones that you battle alone, for this, she is remarkable. She is a survivor.” ― Nikki Rowe.
Here are 6 reasons why a strong woman often feel so broken inside:
1. She doesn’t seek emotional security, even when she wants it sometimes
For a long time, you have been the master of your fears and feelings. Although few people can keep up with their betrayals and things that have hurt them, you have managed to survive and move on. Now, you are not looking for emotional security from people as much as you’d like or want it in some form – making sure that you are not betrayed again.
2. She keeps giving but doesn’t ask for anything in return
The strongest ones often try to be the most resourceful when it comes to being caregivers. When it comes to friends or family, you don’t hold back in caring for them. When you keep thinking about everyone else and putting others before you, it can take a huge toll on anybody. Though your strength allows you to continue, emotional exhaustion gets to you.
3. She takes the hurt but she keeps the pain inside
You are a strong woman, do not let too much negativity get to you. While striving to be yourself and living your individuality, you don’t let toxic criticism get to you. However, a lot of the times people you love can hurt you – unintentionally and intentionally. However much in control you are, it is natural for your emotions are affected. Although it hurts you, you carry on ahead with strength and grace. But it makes you emotionally fatigued as you don’t share the pain and deal with it alone.
4. She is not given care, even when she needs it
Despite dealing with the hectic life and responsibilities, your care almost never fails to get to the others. But when it comes to getting care, you don’t let anyone know that. Since you have been your own caregiver, you feel you don’t have anybody at all. However, we all need someone to care about us from time to time, and its absence can lead to burnout and exhaustion without you realizing it.
5. She doesn’t ask for people’s love
Your drive for efficiency allows you to understand that everyone has priorities. Because you are a strong man, you can manage to be the caregiver, lover, and fighter for others, but are often taken for granted for being able to do all that. Many selfish people can only feed off your love, but they don’t love you back, and you don’t ask for it. Not being given the love you deserve can lead to a build-up of distress and later, emotional exhaustion.
6. She is very cautious about sharing her problems with anyone else
Complications are bound to arise when you are trying to be the one for everyone, all by yourself. While your smarts and experience make you able to take care of problems, sharing goes a long way in reducing the stress which you’re likely to face. But you think that sharing problems with others will burden them and make them pity you – two things you never want. Due to this, your emotional exhaustion is bound to appear sooner or later.
