All Independent Women Want Their Partners Know These 6 Things

Independent women should be considered a treasure to be with for many reasons. If you are lucky enough to be a partner to an independent woman, you know she’s playing for keeps. Independent women don’t need a partner to thrive so when they find someone special, they allow themselves to be a part of your life. The love is legitimate and her commitment to you is a coveted gift that you should never take for granted. She takes care of herself and has the strength to take care of you too if necessary.

1. We Thrive When We Feel Free

If you are with an independent woman, one of the most important elements to the success of your relationship is allowing her to be who she is. Accept that your partner has a greater need for feeling free. It in no way means they love you less, just because they might not want to hang out with you every night. If she wants to go on a vacation alone or with her girlfriends, she’ll appreciate it when you allow her the freedom to do so.

2. We Stay Close to Our Partner When We’re Given Space

Independent women that are given the space they need to thrive will tend to stay closer to their partner by choice. They will appreciate that you honor their independence and give you much in return. Independent women have a good sense of self and have so much to offer. What they expect in return is that you believe in their ability to take care of themselves and that you support them on their journey. She will appreciate the space you allow her and through your actions, she will know you truly love her.

3. We Like Taking Care of Ourselves

Independent women like taking care of themselves; it’s a personal choice and personality trait that they’re proud to have. Going for walks, to a movie or even to dinner by themselves is easy for them. They buy their own jewelry, open doors for themselves and pump their own gas. They succeed in finance and in relationships because they depend on themselves. She is extremely proud to make her own money and make her own way in the world. She will rarely, if ever, rely on you for things she can do herself. Many times, she will do more for you than she expects you to do for her.

4. We are Emotionally Stable

Women who live their life the way they want to are emotional stable. She doesn’t sweat the small stuff and won’t let little things in life break her confidence. She knows who she is and is comfortable with herself. Due to her true and genuine nature, she is comforting to be around. When she does make a mistake (because she’s a risk taker), she won’t put blame on others. She is accountable for her own life and accepts situations.

5. We Honor Your Space

As an independent woman, she will honor you and your space. She will give you all the Independence you need and support your personal endeavors. She will do this because she knows how it feels to her to have that support. She believes in your strengths and you ability to handle life, just as she does.

Although independent women value their independence, they still require the same amount of support and love that any woman wants. Independent women also love deeply, passionately and offer support to their partners. They don’t play games as a rule and are genuine people that want the best for the people they love. They don’t suck energy from you or take advantage of you. If your partner is an independent woman, she is with you because she wants to be and not because she needs to be.

8 Powerful Reasons to Love Your Enemies

8 Powerful Reasons to Love Your Enemies

We’ve all got our enemies; people who take pleasure in causing us pain and misery. Sometimes, the development of an enemy is due to certain differences in your characters and events have led to that. Other times, some people end up hating you for apparently no reason at all.

Regardless of how you got this enemy, as opposed to the paradigm of fighting fire with fire, consider the following reasons and see why you should actually appreciate your enemies. This article will show you not only how to not be bothered by your enemies, but how to actually foster love for them.

Read on to learn the secret.

1. It’s a practical lesson in anger management

To be honest, your enemies are the best people to help you understand your sense of anger management. When it might be true that your enemies have a way of bringing out the worst in you as regards anger, it is also true that they can help you in your quest to have that anger managed. You can’t get truly angry at someone you love and it is only in that time when you get truly annoyed that you learn how to manage it.

Anger management is more effective when it is in practice and not in theory

Your enemies are like the therapists who you need, but actually don’t want. Inasmuch as you might want to hate them, they provide you an opportunity to control the anger impulse that you have.

2. It’s an opportunity for healthy competition

You might not know it, but your enemies make for great rivals as they help harness the competitor in you (sometimes, you might not even know or bee conversant with this competitive side until you come across an adversary). You get the right motivation to compete and this can go a long way to spur you to victory.

However, while doing so, it is also essential that you remember not to become a worse version of yourself while competing. Working against an adversary is tricky, and you need to ensure that you don’t cause harm to yourself or your morals in the process. Healthy competition is all you need to get out of this.

3. Their negative comments can help you make a breakthrough

It is true that your enemies never really have much good to say about you. However, in as much as they might be talking out of a place of hate, there might be some truth to what they’re saying.

To wit, whenever you hear something mean or nasty from an enemy, you might want to take a step back and evaluate yourself. There is a chance that what this enemy is saying is true and coming to face that fact is a major step in helping you to become a better person overall. This is another testament to the fact that enemies can be therapists in their own way.

4. Enemies can also be powerful allies

Loving your enemies can also mean making an effort to interact and make peace with them. In the end, if you are able to establish some common ground and patch things up, you’ll have succeeded in making another friend. And who doesn’t need friends?

This can also help you in working with people in the long run. You get to hone your inter-personal skills, and that can be a big plus to your ledger.

5. It gives you the ability to realize positivity

In a multitude of negativity, a speck of positivity always seems to find its way through.

Sometimes, a knowledge of the fact that you have enemies will also help you to focus on the many positives and good things that are in your life. A lot of times, we neglect what really matters in life. This can be due to being overly concerned with the enemies we have.

However, it is also possible for this acknowledgement to spur you to take a step back and appreciate the goo things (and people who surround you).

6. There might just be a misunderstanding

Sometimes, the reason why you have an enemy might be something very innocuous. You might not have known the cause of this fractured relationship and your enemy will help complete the picture.

Simply approaching them will help you to understand the reason for the fracture. This, in turn, can help you to work towards healing your relationship moving forward. Misunderstandings happen, and you need to be able to work around them.

7. You learn to appreciate love as well

A constant reminder of the fact that there are enemies will also help you not to take those who love you for granted. Love and hate are two opposing emotions and it is possible for one to momentarily overshadow the other.

However, while you’ll always have enemies, there will also always be people who love you. These people need to be appreciated for what they do for you. Never let the hate projected to you from your enemies take the place of that.

8. Do you really need the hate?

The truth is that enemies bring only toxic emotions and generate bad reactions from you. If you’re truly to live a prosperous life, you can’t really be carrying all this baggage around.

Hate is bad and you should try all you can to get rid of it. It is a well-known fact that nobody can get really far in life while carrying a lot of emotional baggage. Well, hate is the biggest form of emotional baggage there is.
