They love our strength when our passionate Warrior Woman energy takes a stand on matters of injustice for them. They love when our truth talking, fact revealing and status quo disrupting benefits them. They respect us. They say we’re inspiring, fierce, strong, protective. They are glad we’re on their side. They stand taller with us. They sometimes even wish they were like us. They hope their daughters become empowered like us.
But the thing is this — our unwavering, justice-oriented scale-balancing doesn’t take sides. We aren’t easily influenced. We don’t need a tribe to be strong. We know when to retreat, and when to stand up and speak up.
So when our passionate, protective, courageous energy takes a stand on matters of their injustice, they are repelled by us. They say we’re aggressive, angry, emotional, confrontational, loud. They say we’re difficult. They say we’re too much. They say we’re not being ladylike. They want us to be less. They talk in the shadows, seeking others to agree with them to gain strength in numbers. They say we’re b*tches.
And maybe we are all of those things. Maybe. But we’re for sure all of those things to them because that’s how they need to perceive us within their own level of awareness.
But does that even matter? Does it matter how they perceive us when all that really matters to us is that we know how we became this way?
We didn’t become strong by being compliant. We became strong by feeling everything and showing up to life anyway.
We have been fearfully brave going deep into ourselves to excavate and reclaim our treasures. We’ve reclaimed our little girl within and given her back everything she didn’t know she didn’t have.
We’ve elevated ourselves out of the overpowering vibrational pull to keep us contained, conformed and controlled. We don’t waste energy. We have important stuff to do. Warrior women don’t need swords because light cuts through darkness.
Warrior women are torch-holding, light-bringing, energy-shifting, form-defying disruptors. And no, that’s not ladylike. Thank goodness.
