21 Quotes That Prove That NO Woman Needs A Man To Define Her

Love, Quotes

You don't need a man to know who you are, or what you're capable of.

Getting married should NOT be viewed as an accomplishment. Ok, so you snagged a doctor or a lawyer or a businessman, so what? His success doesn’t define your own. This isn't something to brag about. 

You are capable of doing amazing things! But you know that already and hopefully so does he. You don’t NEED him to take care of you because you can do that all by yourself. You're miss (well, MRS.) self-sufficient.

Maybe you're the type of woman who, from day 1, was honest with yourself and him about what kind of marriage you were going to have. You knew that you wanted to have your own career and your own life on the side so that you wouldn’t lose your identity.

Or maybe you're still single and damn proud of it. Maybe you come from a long line of strong, independent women who taught you that a woman doesn't NEED a man (YASS the world needs more of you). Or that a woman should never rely on a man. Women should always make something of themselves.

Either way, you’re not some 1950s housewife that stays home all day baking apple pies and cleaning the house. No! You’re a go-getter and a total BADASS.


If you want something, you go get it for yourself. You don’t need him to get it for you. You don’t need him to be your knight in shining armor because you’re not a damsel in distress who needs rescuing. You can help yourself. 

All you REALLY need from him is his time, attention, and respect. THAT is what’s most valuable to you.

So here's to you, strong, beautiful, independent, married women! 21 quotes you can instantly relate to.
