A Quote To Get You Thinking!

When a man truly loves a woman she becomes his weakness. When a woman truly loves a man he becomes her strength. This is called Exchange of Power.

The weakness referred in the quote speaks to a man's love for his woman; his giving nature to make his woman happy grows as his woman leans into his strength. So for us, he is my strength and I am his weakness........... he gives me the world! 

I began a quote collection before the internet made it so darn easy. Quotes can be delivered to your inbox daily; you can follow sites that are full of quotes. You can choose quotes about a particular theme. You can select quotes said by the famous. However, every once in a while, a quote jumps off my screen and I tuck it into my collection. I am particular as my collection is big now after a lifetime of collecting. 

When I saw this quote this morning, I thought I would share and ask for your opinion on how it sits with you. 

Do you like it? Do you agree? Is this how you define power exchange?  

Please let me know!

  1. Meredith:

    I absolutely agree!!


  2. Meredith,

    Since we have begun, the Sheriff and I, I have found that quote to be remarkably true. The farther alone the path, the stronger the exchange. He will keep me safe (even from myself) and I have found, that with him leading, I am stronger than ever before.

  3. I don't know if I am his weakness but he is definitely my strength. Beautiful quote though.

  4. Lovely quote Meredith.I agree with Blondie.


  5. Awe! I love this quote Meredith. Yes on both counts here. All it takes is me batting my eyes or sticking out a flirtatious poochy lip and I can **almost** get out of anything. Or I used too -- he's upped his game in the last year. :) And he's definitely my strength...in all of the nuances of life.

  6. Meredith,
    This is such a good question to ponder that it is making my head hurt. I bet we could all write a post just on our own individual interpretations of this quote.

    Storm is absolutely my strength. He is my soft spot though, too. I don't like it if something doesn't go right for him or if I don't feel someone is treating him respectfully and lovingly (when appropriate).

    If I asked Storm if I was his strength or his weakness, he would put his own spin on it and say what he often does to me privately, "We make a good team, Babe." I believe that makes me his strength sometimes and his weakness others....

    Great quote, Meredith. Hugs, Windy

  7. That is a great quote. He is my strength and I can for sure be his weakness. He takes his job to care for me so seriously and sometimes that means he spoils me.

    Though I do agree with Windy above that it can switch. As life happens sometimes I have needed to step up and be the strength for both of us.

    Great post Meredith.

  8. I love that you have a quote collection, I do as well. This one is very interesting and also very sweet. I would say that here.....I am sometimes his weakness, but he is always my strength.

  9. Hi Meredith, :) I love that you have a quote collection!

    This is an interesting quote to ponder. I agree with the second part... Rob being my strength when I need it most. I don't look at myself as being Rob's weakness. More like the avenue with which he made a choice to walk down, with all of his love and strength in hand. I hope that makes some kind of sense! LOL! Many hugs,

    ❤️Katie xoxo
