  1. Great post! 🙂 I think a “tough cookie” is someone who doesn’t break down under pressure, someone ready and willing to take on the challenges life throws at them.

  2. A woman who is a tough cookie doesn’t “crumble” when pressure is applied. She reshapes herself to face the problems. She can adapt using her intuition, creativity, and love. I love the thoughts this post is stimulating! I am a tough cookie with a tender heart. I loved my husband while he was sick, even though he was emotionally abusive. I cared for him as a nurse through a stroke, a post operative complication, uncontrolled diabetes, and finally his death. I paid the bills he had paid, cared for the house and later sold it and bought a condo. I am woman, hear me roar! I did things I never dreamed I could do and increased my confidence to new levels. I am a tough cookie with a tender heart.

  4. I needed to read this today! Thanks for telling me that I’m a tough cookie, even though you don’t know me. I’m trying hard to be positive and take on board all the definitions you’ve posted as well as the comments. Thanks so much 🙂

  5. Christina thinks: “One Tough Cookie” means you’re both sweet and strong. You’re strong enough to handle even the most difficult of situations, but sweet enough not to tear others down in the process.

    I enjoyed this post. I was raised knowing that men and women are equals – true equals .. that is what my culture (my father’s culture) believes, and that is what I will teach my children. I’m a SAHM right now by choice, not because I think that’s a woman’s place. I want to be as much a part of my children’s lives as possible, and that’s of course easiest if I’m home with them .. The plan is for me to return to the work force once I get my nursing degree.
    Women should build each other up, not tear each other down. Two people can approach the same situations differently, while still respecting each other.
    Your post has such a positive vibe to it. Thank you!

      1. My pleasure. 🙂 Your writing seems to “spark” the comments. I’m not always able to think up more to say than just, “great post!” but, I had no problem adding my thoughts to yours.

  6. I love posts that give me food for thought!

    Sometimes when someone calls you “one tough cookie,” they are suggesting that you are uncompromising and inflexible, ie., there are no breaks with you, or getting you to think otherwise. At least, that has always been my interpretation. Prior to knowing myself as intimately as I now do, I perceived this association with a negative connotation. Now, I know that ‘uncompromising’ can be an especially good thing when it comes to reaching my goals and not settling for anything less than I deserve. Uncompromising can get me exactly where I need to go.

    … so, I don’t mind being uncompromising because now that simply means I am committed, unapologetic, steadfast, unwavering, unflappable, undeterred, and confident in my purpose. My grandmother was the one “One Tough Cookie” from whose book I took a page. She was a remarkable woman of faith, resilience, and steadfastness. Folk knew exactly where they stood with her! I always admired her for that! #WomanRoar

    I will take the time to watch the The Women’s List. I get the feeling it will be a wonderful addition to my viewing! 🙂 Thanks for the reco and link. I knew nothing about it before this post.

  7. Sweet and at first assumption, crumbles easily. But ‘tough cookie’ means that first glance assumptions are wrong. Sweet and succulent maybe, but with all kinds of ‘I get it done’ built in to the batter.
