That’s become our widespread interpretation of power:
the sacrifice of our feminine nature.
Besides years of media conditioning and the cliche “powerwoman” role overplayed in pop culture, you’ve felt it in your daily life too.
You push aside heavy emotions when you’re going through a personal crisis to avoid the risk of being labeled “unprofessional” at work.
When you’re at the height of your menstrual cycle - and your body is begging you to slow down - your trainer "motivates" you by telling you not to be “lazy” and to keep “pushing harder”.
And you keep pushing harder in all areas of your life. Because that’s exactly what you’ve been unconsciously taught it takes to achieve your dreams.
And in the process of going after what you want - by being empowered the way you’ve been taught - you end up burnt out, chronically stressed and unable to relax, suffer from emotional ups and down, struggle to orgasm, experience painful or irregular menstrual cycle, and on top of all that - you seem to push men away (at least the good ones). Your power, your drive and your strong energy intimidates any possible good partner.
It is what it is.
You have not been given the FULL picture of what feminine really is.
Feminine power is actually FIERCE in a way a man will never even be able to embody.
You’ve seen her before.
A woman lifting a car to free her child from underneath it.
A woman juggling 3 jobs, taking care of the family and the house (while the day still hasn’t extended past 24 hours).
A woman who’s been harassed and abused, who doesn’t give up and instead rises to the peak of her career.
