Women need to experience and learn from life just like anyone else, and if someone is forced to not weather any storms then how can they ever be strong enough to face anything difficult in life? Troubles in life can be good thing as long as you overcome and learn from them each time.
Survival. When the worst comes, regardless of your experience, you can stand up to it.
I've led a very sheltered life. When the police came round to my parents house (because my father was downloading child porn) and I ended up in an interview room over it after 6 hours in a shit stained holding cell (because I was out and guess who he said was doing it?), I was shaken, yes, but I prevailed.
The person who I was closest to tried to get me jailed over a crime that he done. Do you know what? I STILL trust people, I still make friends (well, I am not really allowed to socialise). I managed to overcome homelessness and the hunger and pain.
Yeah, it really fucked me up, but I found out that I am strong. My mother (who everyone has always thought to be strong) fell apart.
YOu don't need life experience to take life on, sometimes you can find the strength from within you.
