Unapologetically be you.
Use the anger, the fear, the happiness and every other emotion you feel as a drive to elevate yourself and others like you. I’m talking about using your emotions to positively transform the situation. Go against all odds, and speak up against the voices that try their best to bring you down. Little do they know that you cannot be torn down. To every woman who has aimed high but been told she wouldn’t achieve her goals, to every woman who has ever felt small, USE THAT and prove them wrong. Be in control of how you are being perceived, and while you’re at it, don’t seek approval from the conventional standard of beauty. It’s a narrow frame that makes you believe that what you are is not enough. It marginalises people.
If you have the opportunity to inspire and encourage other women, please do it. Practice faith that goes far and beyond the facts and statistics. When you do this, I promise you others will follow. Doing nothing puts you in a comfortable position, and your comfort will ensure that things stay the same. Things shouldn’t stay the same. Comfort is overrated anyway. When people change, society has to as well. We need to stop comparing ourselves to one another, we must stand united and help each other up when we fall. Live life with the knowledge that your existence can influence others.
Feel the fear and do it anyway.
