How can I inspire people and act strong and firm and smart without letting go of wanting to also be protected and vulnerable?

Lately I have been trying hard to become stronger and smarter and more assertive because I have dreams and goals and I need to be competent if I want them to come true!! But at the same time I think that this comes at the cost of being 'protectible' of people wanting to look after you. I don't know how to strike a balance between being COMPETENT and being vulnerable and feminine? Is even wanting to keep that vulnerability something I should be ashamed of as a feminist? What do you guys think?
