The tales of a Strong Woman!

Patience Nyange
Posted December 5, 2019 from Kenya

“Everyone wants a strong woman until she actually stands up, flexes her muscles and projects her voice. Suddenly, she is too much. She must have forgotten her place. We love such women as ideas, as fantasies. Not as breathing, living humans threatening to be better than you thought they could be. So we do everything to shut them up. Don’t be afraid to be that woman!” Anonymous

Hi Patience,
Exactly, my point. Suddenly then she becomes over confident and expels everything, everyone, everybody.
You just nailed it on the head. How are you doing?

Hi Patience,

Thanks for sharing your "true" post. It reminded me of a time that my co-worker asked me why women never speak up, then, or don't say what they really mean. The whole, women are so confusing thing. At the time, I was so taken off guard I didn't know what to say. And, I was not the woman that I am today, either, but it still haunts me until today... the whole could of, should of, said this. Would it have made a difference in his mind? Perhaps. I will never know.

Hope you're doing well, and that you have a great weekend!

Hello, Patience,

I love the quote! Yes, let's not be afraid to be that woman because only then we can save other women from violence. We stand with you, dear.
