STRENGTH..., Whose forte is it?

She was talking to this colleague of hers at work, nice composed guy. They exchanged their morning greetings, and during the course started their discussion about how a man manages himself after death of his spouse and how a woman manages her life after death of her husband. From there it took off to man and woman’s strengths and capabilities. He emphasized that even though fairer sex is considered weak but still a women can handle situations better. Surprisingly enough for her to hear this from a guy who looks like the epitome of strength and power. He announced, GOD made woman stronger than man, well with that being said it made her reflect ..why do people still can’t accept the fact that women ARE survivors,and ARE strong. Then he mentioned that men are not WIRED that way to take emotional pressures. (And still strength is synonymous with physical aspect...what an irony). Even though herself being a feminist by heart she was at her best of feigning modesty by still listening to her friend smilingly when he made a remark that probably earlier society and generation knew that already that women would do better than their male counterparts no matter what situation they were thrown into so that’s why they always tried to dominate them by making them feel lower and making them forget their innate powers. She decided not to think anything else but to draw some strength out of this. And that is true strength.
