Strong Women Don't Have to Be Ok!

November 9, 2015

Every so often I read something on Facebook that makes my blood boil.  I know, I probably need to work on being a little less opinionated but I have my passions, ok?  Sometimes it’s a blog post someone shared that gets me going, sometimes it’s someone’s status, or sometimes (pretty often) it’s one of those cutsey quotes.  Yesterday I read one of those quotes and it made me more frustrated than I’ve been in a while.  Maybe you’ve read it too:

A strong woman knows how to keep her life in order, even with tears in her eyes, she still manages to say “I’m ok” with a smile – Author Unknown

HOW CAN ANYONE THINK THIS QUOTE IS INSPIRATIONAL?!?!?!? I mean, really, what is it that makes anyone think that strength means that you have to say you’re ok?  How can anyone think that pasting on a smile is the definition of being strong? Have you heard that in order to be a strong woman you need to slap a smile on your face and say that everything's ok?  Well, I'm here to tell you that's NOT TRUE! #Strength #Faith #Depression #Smile #StrongWoman
