Throughout my life, far too often, I’ve heard men label women who have some sort of emotional baggage as the type to stray away from. They immediately depict this woman as the type of female who is “trouble,” has too many “problems,” or has a history that will cause chaos in their lives. Instead of going into another person’s world with an open mind, these women are struck down, silenced and misjudged before they even get to let someone else in.
Contrary to this belief, women with baggage aren’t a tornado of dramatics and arguments – instead, a woman with baggage is clothed in strength and ambition. This is the kind of woman who has fallen – more than once – and learned how to pick herself back up, on her own, without any help.
1. She Is Strong Enough To Stand On Her Own:
Women with baggage have faced some of life’s hardest obstacles and trials – having to make the tough decisions. These moments leave a lasting impact on her life, not in a negative way, but in a positive, growth and maturity aspect.
They won’t need you to be there for them every step of the way – and that’s okay. The independence they’ve grown to accept when it comes to facing life gives them the kind of strength most people want in their romantic partner.
2. But, She Will Never Let You Face Your Problems Alone:
When you date a woman with baggage, she will be resilient through life’s problems. She won’t let you face your own setbacks alone.
Instead, she’ll be there for you – full-force – guiding you through your toughest battles and decisions. She’ll know how to handle the trauma – the big moments that you will face throughout your life – she won’t run and hide.
3. She Knows Exactly What She Wants & Needs:
With resilient women comes a kind of confidence that perseveres through life. Women with baggage are the kind of people who know exactly what they want.
They won’t play games – lead you on, leave you with unanswered questions – you’ll known from the very start what they’re looking for and what they need. This makes any relationship easier to navigate from the get-go.
4. She’s Empathetic & Understanding:
This woman has seen shit. She’s been through something that has changed her as a person. For this, she will always be open-minded and understanding of life and other people’s problems.
She doesn’t go around talking badly about others because they may be going through something. Instead, she is empathetic and tries to understand them more – looks at people through a different lens than most others would. She gets it.
5. She’ll Love You For Exactly Who You Are:
These kind of women know exactly what it’s like to be judged – therefore, they won’t be the ones who judge you. Instead, they’ll love you for all of the things you think are flaws, imperfections.
They know you are more than your mistakes, more than your past. They will want to learn who you are, rather than who everyone else thinks you are. And, when she loves you – she’ll love you with everything she has.
