The term “strong but tired” is used to describe a woman who has been through many hard situations, but keeps moving forward anyway. The phrase can also describe women who are balancing a lot of things in their lives at once and yet still find the energy to keep going.
Yes, life can be hard — on women especially — but what about men? Men suffer just as much as women do; perhaps even more so because they are expected to be strong at all times and not show their vulnerability. But there comes a time when a woman has had enough.
She’s tired of being taken for granted, tired of being told she needs to change and tired of doing all the work no matter how strong she is. And when a woman is strong but tired, she stops caring about herself and her appearance. She becomes careless about how she dresses and how she looks because nothing matters anymore except getting through each day as best as possible with as little pain as possible.
Below is a collection of she’s strong but she’s tired quotes designed to remind women that they are not alone, and it’s okay to feel the way they do. It is an illustration of the strength and beauty that is on the inside of every woman.
