What does it means to be a woman?
Being a woman means sharing a special connection that extends beyond race, age, sexuality, political opinions and physicality. It is something that bonds us together on a level that only women understand. It is having the ability to love fully and care for and nurture things around us in a way that women have in strides.
The dictionary defines a woman as “an adult female human being” while purpose is “our reason for being and for what we do.” It is why we are here on the earth. Each one of us has a unique purpose in life and it is up to us to discover our purpose and to fulfill it.
Traits such as nurturance, sensitivity, sweetness, supportiveness, gentleness, warmth, passivity, cooperativeness, expressiveness, modesty, humility, empathy, affection, tenderness, and being emotional, kind, helpful, devoted, and understanding have been cited as stereotypically feminine.
A Woman is a natural fighter - she learns to fight for her own freedom, to decide what she desires and opts to achieve in her lifetime. No matter what adversity she faces, she learns to adapt and overcome, get back up and fight even HARDER!
Although every woman's personal life purpose will be different, a woman's true-life purpose in general is to understand who she is and to create her own destiny. She should cherish her passion, drive and ambitions to excel to new heights so that she can be an example to others. A woman should always seek fulfillment, growth and ways that she can continue to be a contributor, to herself, family, friends and co-workers.
