Terribly Wrong Assumptions People Make about Independent Women ...

Independent women have so many silly assumptions made about them. There are all these preconceived notions that are so wrong, they're laughable. I don't know if people are threatened by independent women, intimidated by them, or jealous of them. I don't know if they just don't like anything that challenges their opinions of what a woman should be or what, but if you're a woman and you can happily and successfully take care of yourself, people can get downright nasty. Even when they're not being mean, exactly, plenty of their assumptions are nasty, too. Here are some of the biggest misconceptions about independent women. See if any of them seem familiar to you, and be sure to chime in with your experiences, too!

Hahahahaha damn u people know me so well!

And sorry for rambling about myself. I get so proud of what I overcame.

You live for yourself first. If being independent is something that makes you, you then do what makes you happy. Those who don't support that aren't worth your precious time. You make you happy first.

Sweetheart, people will judge you just because you live outside of their expectations. For me, I will tell you to use this time to discover yourself. Start a business, learn something new, do somethong for your community, spearhead a meaningful campaign. Be your own queen and put your life in good perspective. By focusing on being the great person you are, you will quickly learn that judgmental people are not worth their salt at all. It will take your mind off stuff and get you to achieve great stuff. Remember that some girls like you made your décision but as a result of people saying stuff like you hear, they have made bad decisions like ending up pregnant or even doing drugs. It is crazy to listen to these stuff. Concentrate on being great and do not ever fit in. You were made to stand out.

Lol kidding

Omg n I’m scared of cats. Lol

I am 15 and I am independent, as a result everyone, including my family, are convinced that when I say I don't want to be in a relationship right now that I'm a lesbian. Now I have no problem with lesbians, but the fact is; I'm not one. And I'm sick of people making assumptions in me based on my capabilities and gender!!! Do you have any tips for me on how to get by without being judged so much?

Don't let haters get to you! Let them make their assumptions, it doesn't have to bother you, their judgment is their business. It's not gonna change who you actually are 🙅🏻

Nothing but the close I was wearing you can and you will. Headstrong kid you got this.

As for the cutie above I been in your shoes. I survived a whole culture that had me arranged married at 16 ran away got my degrees and life on track. N as such I live alone n stay single by choice. My who life I did what my family n culture wanted, today
