Some people think you’re a bitch, but the truth is, you’re an independent woman who lives life on your own terms. Take it or leave it. Every day is a celebration of your independence as woman. You are proud of your strong personality and most of all, you are proud of who you are. If men can’t handle someone like you, it’s their loss, not yours. #SorryNotSorry
Here are 10 things only independent women will understand:
1. Your BFFs are your best weapon.
Who needs an army when you have your girls to back you up for anything and everything? You don’t need to call them when you’re down, ‘cause they’re already knocking at your door—ready to cry, laugh, get mad, and get crazy with you all night. #SquadGoals
2. Words for the messed-up life: ‘Bitch ka lang, ako super bitch!’
You have perfected the bitch-you-can’t-put me down attitude, because no one will put your broken pieces back together but yourself. You understand that life is a battlefield, but you have to be the last woman standing..in heels with your full-on lipstick, blow-dried hair, and freshly-polished nails, of course.
3. The truth hurts.
And you’re ready to give and take a painful punch of the truth when needed. Life’s too short to live a life full of BS.
4. You’re selfish and selfless at the same time.
You shop your heart out, indulge in a classy bottle of wine, have a day-long pamper sesh, explore the world, and shop some more. You're willing to spend on expensive yoga classes not just for your body's wellness, but also for the fun chikahan sesh with your friends after sweating it out. You do whatever makes you happy, because you want it and you deserve it. But when one of your girls is down and blue, you’re ready to go the extra mile to cheer her up. #WineandWhineAllYouWant
5. And you don’t need a man to give you the luxuries in this world.
You are anything but a gold-digger because you know you can provide for what you, and the people you love most, need. You want a man who will accept you for who you are, not a man who will sweep you off your feet with his money.
6. Date and date until you succeed.
You don’t need to wait for the right man to come along, you FIND him. If a date fails, move on to the next. Who cares if you’ve dated a lot of guys? There’s plenty of fish in the sea; don't be limited to what you've caught. If you don’t like it, throw it back, so both of you can swim and explore some more.
7. Your career is a big part of who you are.
You take pride in the career you have established on your own. You’re good at what you do, you’re an asset in the company, and you've worked your ass off for many endless nights to reach the top of your game. And no man can ever slow you down.
8. You know that everything will eventually be okay.
You’ve gained so much strength and wisdom from handling all the storms on your own. You’re confident that everything will turn out okay and everything will be for the best. Keep calm and have faith.
9. You know that you’re not the only one with problems.
You’re mature enough to handle difficult people with utmost respect, patience, and grace. You understand that others have good days and bad days, too. Independent women are more than capable of being compassionate.
10. Independent and loving it!
Every day is a celebration of your independence. You are proud of your strong personality and most of all, you are proud of who you are. If men can’t handle someone like you, it’s their loss, not yours. Again: #SorryNotSorry.
