A strong woman knows…

By Alma “Namene” Amunyela

A strong woman knows how to keep her life in line.

A strong woman knows that not everyone is going to like her, and that’s OK.

If you’re strong you’re just strong and don’t wait for someone to come and make you to be a strong woman. If you’re a strong woman like me if you say good bye there is no turning back okay.

I’m not telling nor teaching you to be rude, but I’m advising you, my fellow ladies, to be strong mwa mwena mwa dhama and confident of yourself no matter the haters.

Don’t be an ordinary woman, and don’t be someone who will put up any nonsense.

When people are nasty, you can’t feel devastated because you know yourself. You can cry and scream but you don’t cry for a long time.

When you’re strong enough you don’t point fingers at yourself for your mistakes. If you make a mistake some people will be at your neck criticizing and attacking you so that you will feel bad. But it’s OK.

Once you’re strong then you must also have to be a girl with a powerful mind, a woman with attitude and a lady with class because you know that your strength is greater than your weakness.

A strong woman is able to smile as if you were not crying last night. We all cry and we all have problems but of course we need to be strong and have a belief that what happened to you will not determine your life.

Be strong and be that type of person who will sit in the bathroom and cry but then walk out like nothing ever happened, ha ha hah. That’s the truth. That’s me. Just have that character, intelligence, strength.

You need to be that amazingly strong woman who knows how to keep her life in line with tears in her eyes but sits up and can manage to say nah, I’m fine.

If you’re a strong woman then you can forgive, love, walk away, do your thing, and let life go on.
