There are misconceptions about all types of women. However, I think independent women are misunderstood the most. One of the biggest misconceptions of independent women is that they don't want a man to tell them what to do or that they are not submissive. That is so far from the truth. A confident woman doesn't want a man that she can boss around and tell him what to do. However, she will also make it clear that she will not put up with just anything.

Another misconception about independent women is that they do not need a man. There are women that will say that they don't need a man. In fact, independent women do need companionship. Just because you can do something by yourself, doesn't necessarily mean that you should do it by yourself. We were designed to be a help to men. However, they will not let a relationship status define who they are as a person.

Independent women are only focused on their careers. While this is true for some independent women, there are independent women that long to have a family. For example, my sister and I are both very independent women with very different goals for our lives. It is the goals that you establish for yourself and how you take care of yourself that makes you an independent woman.

Independent women are harder to approach. Well, if you have nothing to offer that woman, then yeah you might feel that way. If a woman is not confident in who she is, how can she possibly provide support to her spouse?

Independent women are less feminine. Independence should not take away from the loving, supportive, and fostering qualities of a woman.

Every woman should know how to take care of herself. My parents taught my sisters and I how to take care of ourselves. So, not only do we know how to take care of ourselves but we also know to take care of a man. Truth is, a man is not always guaranteed to be in your life. Those should not be qualities that only independent women possess. My parents didn't necessarily teach me to be an independent woman, but the qualities that they instilled in me as a young girl allows me to be an independent young lady.

Are you an independent woman?

Do you feel misunderstood?

Were you taught to be independent?

Are you a man/woman that is intimidated by other independent women?

  1. Of truth no one is really independent but God, because everyone needs something from someone else sometimes.
