30 Inspirational Quotes For Independent Women

Being independent isn’t just about what you possess… it’s about how you feel about yourself and others around you. Have you been taught to be a woman you shouldn’t be too much of anything? too strong? too sexy, too clever? too assertive? Do you try to be less of what you are, just to fit in?


Is it time to stop being everybody’s everything and claim your independence?


Being an independent woman means you are autonomous in your own right. You stand by your convictions and stand up for what you believe in. You stand up for yourself and others. You’re happy being alone or in company. You have your finances in order. You bring love and don’t have time for anyone who doesn’t bring the same. You embrace your failure as a valuable step to success and even when you fall, you get back up. Your wounds define your resilience and greatness. You don’t sacrifice your dreams or your happiness for the sake of a relationship. Other women are your equals, not your competition. You don’t judge women or men by their culture, race, sexuality nor their clothing, appearance, relationship or economic status. You are here to be a first class you!
