Women are like teabags, because they show their strength when they are in hot water ( Hot water is an idiom meaning being in a difficult situation) and teabags show what they are made of once they are in hot water. Just like a woman, she shows what she’s really made of when she is put in a difficult situation.
The longer you leave a teabag in hot water the stronger the tea. ~ Deirdre Caines
I was strong enough to finally walk away from a very bad relationship and found a much better one with a man who shows and tells me my strengths. ~ Margaret Jones
