There are certain promises that every emotionally intelligent woman makes to herself. These promises are not easy at times, but they are truths she will live by. There will be times when she is not living up to the full potential of these promises, but she probably knows it and will get herself back on track.
Every emotionally intelligent woman promises herself these five things:
An emotionally intelligent woman knows what she is capable of. She knows that if she can dream it, she can do it. She realizes it may not necessarily be easy, but she isn't afraid to try. Most importantly, she knows that when she gets knocked down, she can get back up and try again.
Being her own best friend simply means that she likes herself. An emotionally intelligent woman is not afraid of being alone. In fact, she knows it is healthy to have some one-on-one time with herself. She knows that sometimes she just needs to take a break from the world and de-stress. Being her own best friend also means she likes who she is. She has the qualities she seeks in a friend.
It takes an emotionally intelligent woman to realize she cannot do everything on her own. She needs relationships to help her and keep her happy. Sharing adventures with others is one of the best parts about living. It is OK to ask for help and seek someone who she knows will enrich her life and keep her going when life gets her down.
Some women hold themselves to a high standard and feel they will never reach the pinnacle of womanhood. Emotionally strong women know they are not perfect. They will fail, they will say something they regret and they may not always be the best parent/spouse/friend. But if they are trying, that is what matters. If they are not afraid to admit when they are wrong, then they will be happier in the long run. These types of women know they shouldn't be too hard on themselves, because let's face it -- no one is perfect!
She knows she's not perfect, but an emotionally strong woman knows when to push herself. She knows when she has more to give, even when she may not feel like doing it. She is honest with herself and can push herself to the next level no matter how difficult it is. Others may tell her she is doing just fine, but if she knows she can do better, she will do anything to reach her full potential.
All of these promises take time to learn and understand, but keeping them is what makes her emotionally intelligent. It can be hard to keep them at times, but they are so worth it.
