There is strength in gentleness. It is not a sign of weakness or powerlessness. Gentleness brings kindness, softness and compassion. So needed in the way our hearts receive words from another.
For so many years I disliked this quality in myself. So much. I tried to make my voice bolder and louder so I could be taken seriously. Till I came to honour and value this part of my nature. Gentleness is only a challenge when it is not balanced with the ability to draw the line, speak up for ourself and set a boundary. I believe the world needs more nurturing in whatever way we can show up as this essence. I have seen this quality do far more good than harsh responses. Even the way I speak to myself is changing. Less berating… more softness. Part of rising into our feminine power and self love is acceptance of those parts of oneself that is so intimately part of who we are at our core.
