Monday while scrolling social media, I had an epiphany. I have been scared to live my most full life. Scared to ask for exactly what I want. In every aspect of my life. For fear of rejection or being branded a b*tch. Then I remembered that playing small in my own life does nothing for me but make other people comfortable. I’m not a loveseat. F*ck your comfort. As a woman, I have the task of trying to create a life and fulfill my desires in such a way that advances me but doesn’t offend anyone else in the process. That’s dumb.
If a man is bold and aggressive, people will call him a boss. If a woman is the same way, people will call her a b*tch. At this point in my life, I’m perfectly fine with people thinking I’m a b*tch. I know who am and so do the people who are closest to me. When it comes to my life, I have every right to be ambitious, adventurous, bold, and any other thing that helps me live my life to the fullest. Most importantly, I have the right to be unapologetic about it all. That’s the part that really bothers people the most. For some reason, being carefree and living without regard to others opinions of you tends to ruffle feathers. I say let them ruffle.
Remember, anything in moderation can be a good thing. Set boundaries, be firm in your decisions, be a little selfish, and flourish. I hope this post will help you break through whatever is holding you back. If it did, share it to help someone else. Thanks for reading!
