Gentleness, patience, and kindness are elements of basic human decency, as Maya pointed out in yesterday’s comments.

And

Your femininity flows directly from your ability to authentically embody them.

These virtues are the foundation of your femininity.

gentleness

Nothing in the world is as soft and yielding as water. Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible, nothing can surpass it. The soft overcomes the hard; the gentle overcomes the rigid. – Tao Te Ching

patience

If you have patience, then you’ll also have love. Patience leads to love. If you forcefully open the petals of a bud, you won’t be able to enjoy its beauty and fragrance. Only when it blossoms by following its natural course, will the beauty and fragrance of a flower unfold. – Amma

kindness

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. – Leo F. Buscaglia

Femininity without gentleness, patience, and kindness is a facade.

And a rather short-lived one considering that harpies demand light.

Better than anyone else, you know who you are.

Decide who you want to be and keep moving toward it.
