10 Things Independent Women Do Differently


lifehack.org



An independent woman is a woman who can’t be stopped. When she makes up her mind about something, no one can get in her way. An independent woman knows that she is strong, capable and deserving, and she’s willing to work hard to achieve her goals. Many people struggle with true independence. It can be a difficult trait to learn. Here are ten things that independent women do differently:

1. They are Not Afraid of Doing Things Alone..

There’s no need for you to pester you friends on a group chat, hoping someone else will feign interest in going. You already bought your single ticket to Fifty Shades of Grey on Fandango and don’t need anyone else to share that popcorn with. In fact, she kind of prefers seeing movies by yourself. That way, you can form your own opinion about it and not just chat about how attractive Jamie Dornan is on the car ride home.

2. They Dont Live on Social Media

No one will see a status like “Finally put the kids to sleep! Now time for a well deserved glass of wine!” on your page. You’ll put the kids to bed, have your wine and require no validation in doing so. You’re not about showboating your achievements, since you don’t judge your life worth on likes and comments.

3. They Don’t Complain

An independent woman knows that complaining doesn’t solve problems. She doesn’t waste her time moping around or feeling sorry for herself when things aren’t going her way. If there’s a problem in front of her, she figures out a way to fix it.

4. They Are Confident

Confidence is a trait that many women struggle with. But when a woman makes her mind up to be independent and fully rely on herself, confidence follows. An independent woman knows that she is in control of her happiness and her future.

5. They Aren’t Afraid To Take Risks

While smart, an independent woman isn’t afraid to take a risk when necessary. She’ll never rush into a dangerous situation, but she’ll weigh her options and make a decision. If it’s something a little scary that may pay off in the end, she takes a deep breath and goes for it.

6. They Are Honest

An independent woman is respectful but honest. She won’t beat around the bush or sugarcoat things. If something needs to be said, she has no problem saying it. She is strong in her beliefs and her morals, and she will stand up and speak when needed..

7. They Exercise

A study conducted at the Eastern Ontario Research Institute found that people who exercised twice a week for 10 weeks felt more competent socially, academically, and athletically. They also rated their body image and self-esteem higher.

Best of all, rather than the physical changes in their bodies being responsible for the uptick in confidence, it was the immediate, endorphin-fueled positivity from exercise that made all the difference

8. They Listen More than They Speak

People with confidence listen more than they speak because they don’t feel as though they have anything to prove. Confident people know that by actively listening and paying attention to others, they are much more likely to learn and grow.

Instead of seeing interactions as opportunities to prove themselves to others, they focus on the interaction itself, because they know that this is a far more enjoyable and productive approach to people.

10. They Don’t Pass Judgment

Confident people don’t pass judgment on others because they know that everyone has something to offer, and they don’t need to take other people down a notch in order to feel good about themselves.

Comparing yourself to other people is limiting. Confident people don’t waste time sizing people up and worrying about whether or not they measure up to everyone they meet.
