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.

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

What do I want to do with my life? It’s a question all of us think about at one point or another.

For some, the answer comes easily. For others, it takes a lifetime to figure out.

It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those of you who seek fulfillment, who want to do more, these questions will help you paint a clearer picture of what you want to do with your life.

1. What are the things I’m most passionate about?

The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.

2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?

Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of.

How did those accomplishments make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings?

If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. If your child grew up to be a star athlete or musician because of your teachings, then be a coach or mentor for other kids.

Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.

3. If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?

Here’s a cool exercise: Think about what you would do if you had no limits.

If you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?

You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.[1] So don’t waste your time with people who hold you back from achieving your dreams.

Spend more time with happy, successful, optimistic people and you’ll become one of them.

6. What do I not like to do?

An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do.

What are the things you despise? What bugs you the most about your current job?

Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.

The point is, if you want something to change in your life, you need to take action. Which leads to our final question …

7. How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?

Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.

But here’s the cool part: it’s often the journey that is the most fulfilling part. It’s during these seemingly small, insignificant moments that you’ll often find that “aha” moments that helps you answer the question,

“What do I want to do with my life?”

So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
