Every tale that has a happy ending started off with a princess that needs saving and a prince who ends up being a hero. Those tales are not what life looks like. In reality, we don’t have castles and fairies.

That because we’re not princesses.

We are strong girls who don’t need to be saved from anything. We are used to fighting for everything we want in life. And it’s okay.

We never even asked to be saved. We like who we are and that’s not going to change. We don’t need a prince who’s going to save us.

We don’t need a hero. We are our own heroes. We just need to be loved.

Being an alpha woman who has everything under control is not that easy. It’s actually pretty exhausting. We need to rest from time to time.

Without refueling, we couldn’t function this well. But even when we’re resting, our brains can’t stop working.

We constantly think of many things, such as reflecting on what we did in life or thinking about what to expect from it next. While imagining our future, it’s really hard to imagine someone next to us.

For some of us, it’s even impossible. A lot of guys we meet are intimidated by our personalities.

They simply want to be heroes for their girlfriends. They want to feel like they are the solutions to all their troubles.

Well, sorry to break it to you, but the truth is that the only thing we need is love. You see that we’re not asking for much.

We only need a nice shoulder to cry on when we feel overwhelmed by everything. We need someone to take our hand and take us to pizza.

We need guys who are happy to have us in their lives. We just want to be looked at like we’re masterpieces.

Let’s be real—that’s every girl’s dream.

Truth to be told, we are really busy. We work on ourselves all the time, and we won’t stop until we become what we truly want to be.

Some of us want to be doctors, others maybe to open a flower shop, and others are simply trying to be happier in life.

It doesn’t matter what the goal is. If you’re not ready to love your girlfriend and hold her hand through everything she’s planning on doing, then you should take a step back.

She’s ready to give you the support she expects from you. She needs you to be a real man she can count on.

She needs someone who’s going to laugh with her, cry with her, and take her places she’s never been to.

She needs to feel that sparkle of love from time to time. She needs to feel alive.

Even strong women are sometimes weak. Sometimes they get overwhelmed with everything and then forget why are they doing what they’re doing.

When your girlfriend gets to this point, then you should know how to act. You should hug her and tell her that everything is going to be fine.

That’s all she needs. Is she asking for too much? I don’t think so. But sometimes it’s hard for guys to give that to their girlfriends.

All these women are asking for is to be loved, but their men would rather be their heroes and make some great gestures without any meaning—not to mention that most of the guys would be the happiest if they got to play with girls’ feelings.

There is no woman in this world who would accept this kind of relationship.

The bottom line is that if you’re not an alpha male, you have nothing to do with an alpha woman. If you are not your own hero, just like she is, then you can forget about her.

She will not settle for anything less than what she deserves. She’s not going to be your mum; she can’t take care of you like that.

She will be your lover and your best friend only if you’re willing to be hers.

This combination will guarantee you a happy relationship. If she thinks you’re not good enough for her, then you should respect her decision.

But, if you are ready to love her the way she needs to be loved, then get ready to have the time of your life with her.

SHE DOESN’T NEED A HERO. SHE ONLY NEEDS SOMEONE TO LOVE HER.
