Do you feel threatened by the strong women around you? What makes you feel threatened, and why?
Most of the time, your fear is caused by your perception of yourself, not by who they are as a person. You're afraid of appearing weak in front of these powerful women, so you're intimidated by them. However, if you look closely at their personality, you will see that this intimidating image of strong women you have in your mind is just an illusion caused by a lack of understanding.

Here are six characteristics of strong women to help you better understand them.
1. They are assured
Their colleagues may perceive their self-confidence as aggressive, arrogant, and ambitious, especially at work; however, you should know that they have overcome several challenges in their life to build up their confidence. Nobody is born with confidence. Everyone has concerns and reservations. Strong women simply do not allow their fears and doubts to hold them back. They'd rather be challenged and grow.
It's not that strong women are arrogant or seek to be the center of attention; it's their self-assurance that draws attention to them. People seek assistance from these strong women because they believe in their abilities. Instead of being intimidated by their confidence, you should learn from it and become more self-assured.
2. They are self-sufficient
Strong women are capable of establishing their own careers and earning a living. They don't need men to take care of them. Even if they are not looking for someone to take care of them, this does not mean they do not require love. You may feel threatened by women who can do everything on their own because it appears that they do not require your relationship, which hurts your ego. Strong women, too, require assistance. They sometimes prefer to do things on their own first. If they require your assistance (which they will), they will ask for it. Support them in areas where they are weaker, and keep in mind that their independence is a good thing.
3. They are safe
Making someone jealous in a relationship does not work. They are confident in themselves and know what they are worth. They aren't interested in the mind games you play. They are committed to you once they have made their decision. They don't waste their time worrying about the relationship. If you disrespect her or make her feel insecure, she will not hesitate to leave you.
Because you are insecure about yourself, you are intimidated by a strong woman's sense of self-worth. Instead of wasting time with them playing mind games, work on your own self-worth. They will respect you if you are open about your insecurities.
4. They are astute
Strong women enjoy engaging in stimulating and intellectual conversation. Small talk is out of the question. Discuss important issues. Rather than discussing what to eat for lunch, the latest TV show, or sports, ask them about their thoughts on global issues. They have their own way of thinking, which they would be delighted to share with you.
They don't gossip at work, so they're easy prey for gossipers. People are afraid of strong women because they perceive them to be distant and opinionated. You can't really blame them. It's not that they don't want to connect with their coworkers; it's just that they're bad at small talk. Furthermore, they are unconcerned about trends. They are also not easily swayed by the media or the opinions of others.
5. They serve a purpose
Strong women are fearless. They are open to new experiences and are not afraid to take risks or fail. They have a clear sense of what they want out of life, with specific goals and objectives. This quality makes them very interesting and appealing, but their ambition can be intimidating.
Expect them to be housewives and obey your every command. They will not give up their dreams to accommodate yours, but that does not mean they are not supportive. They are still rooting for you to succeed. They are still concerned about their family. It's just that they need to push themselves. They want to realize their full potential. They take steps to achieve their objectives. Instead, consider giving them some space to pursue their goals while encouraging them.
6. They are genuine
Strong women are straightforward individuals. They never suppress their emotions and never take things personally. They also expect you to be truthful and direct with them.
However, because they are so direct, you may get the impression that they are rude and unconcerned about other people's feelings. They do care about people, but they care more about solving problems than about people's feelings. They are looking for solutions. You'd be better off simply telling them what you believe. Don't sugarcoat or soften your opinions in order for them to assist you. Allow their true colors to shine through.
