I am a tough girl

Popularity 2Viewed 1500 times 2014-6-26 17:29 |System category:Life| tough, girl, trend, how, change

When a person asked me, can I help you? I always say no, thanks, I can do it by myself.
I carry the heavy luggage, repair the lamp and never say I can’t. My friends call me tough nail or tomboy, anyway I like it.
Sometimes I look down upon the girls who always bother someone without trying themselves,
and I found there were many girls like me both tough girls. Why are tough girls gaining popularity? I think the fierce competition in society is contributing to this trend.
My teacher said to us,women are often in a disadvantaged position compared to men, in order to survive,they have to be independent, strong and tough.
I believe tough women are nurtured , in my case,I love my father more than mother,and he always teach me to be brave and decisive,there is not doubt that he acted me as a boy,year by year,then,I don’t like wearing skirts,hate the flighty girls,but I adapt the way that I live and make friends,I think this is a good trend,because men and women are equal,
sometimes women also can do well as men do. However,this kind of feature also can lead to relationship problems,even if they get married, their manly characteristics might trigger family conflicts.My boyfriend told me,in Chinese traditional cultural,girls should be kind,tender,like a bird depends on tree,you should depend on me,I just can't stand my girlfriend like a strong woman,and I'm behind her,it's weird.
At last,I give in. But it's too difficult to change ,so ,do you have a good idea?

    in china,people like a person who's rish ...
    probably the most important thing is to make yourself available. Then, be presentable etc...these are some of the basic's which Im sure you already do. Also, not to take things too seriously. This can lead to problems. Give and take and  just enjoy each others company. Go slow too...
