So I’ve been hearing a lot lately how stubborn I can be. Okay let’s be real, I’ve been hearing this my whole life. But it seems that there is a negative connotation with the word ‘stubborn’ and I’m here to tell you why being a stubborn girl, particularly in a relationship, can be a good thing!
1. She can empathize.
You’re going to argue at times—that’s a given. But the thing about a stubborn girl is that she’s actually good in arguments. Because of her stubbornness, she will know how to see other sides. Sure, she has her own strong (sometimes VERY strong) feelings, but that doesn’t mean she won’t consider your perspectives. She might not always agree with you (this is a good thing, trust me) but she sticks to what she believes. And that’s important.
2. She’s in-tune with her emotions.
Women are emotional creatures – duh. And it can be beautiful. But the best part about a stubborn girl is that she’s in-tune with those emotions. She knows what gets her fired up and what she will fight to the death about.
3. She will push you to be better.
Let’s face it, sometimes she’ll know you better than you know yourself. She will fight against you when she knows what’s good for you, and she will be relentless when it comes to your health, safety, or happiness. She’s not going to be the girl that stands off to the side and lets you destroy yourself; instead, she’ll be the one who’s continually finding ways to love you better, and get you to love yourself more.
4. She is driven.
She’s stubborn for a reason. Maybe because she had to fight for something she knew she deserved, or maybe because things didn’t always come easy for her. Whatever the reason, she’s stubborn with a purpose. She is strong, feisty and she is driven for the things she wants. This will not only inspire you, but will make her an amazing partner.
5. She’ll make things interesting.
She’s hard-headed, which makes for some conflict. But who wants to fall in love with someone that always agrees? (Ew. That’s no fun.) Sure, being with a stubborn girl means that things will be difficult sometimes, but that’s the beauty of it—she’s going to keep things passionate, complicated, and real.
6. She’s real.
She’s not a pushover and you can’t control her. She’s not the type to just agree with you out of fear, pity, or weakness. This girl has a backbone and she’s going to keep it real with you. When she doesn’t agree with you, she’ll tell you. And this will give you an honest, down-to-earth relationship.
7. She knows what she wants.
A stubborn girl knows what she wants and has no problem going after it. She is fierce with her feelings and when it comes to things and people she loves, she’s all in. Falling in love with a stubborn girl means that she’s stubborn about you. She’ll love you, no matter what craziness happens between the two of you.
8. She cares, so deeply.
She’s stubborn, but stubborn about you. She will be stubborn when it comes to how others treat you and especially how she treats you. She will always make you her equal, or oftentimes even put you first. She’ll always keep on loving you, even when she’s angry or when you’re frustrated with her.
9. She is passionate.
Being stubborn means she has her own wants and desires, her own things that she’s into, and her own passionate feelings for you. She’s not the type of girl to be mundane about everything. She’ll light a fire in you and will give your relationship a wonderful, exciting spark.
10. She’ll drive you crazy, in a good way.
A stubborn girl is going to push your buttons. She’s going to disagree and make it known that you aren’t on the same page. But this girl will love you to the death. And we’re all a little crazy, right? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with finding someone who makes you crazy. And crazy in love.
