Being a girl is hard. There’s unbearable pressure to always look good, say the right things, all while maintaining a good reputation. Girls don’t get enough credit. We’re put down by society, made fun of, and overlooked. Even with all of these things, it’s important to embrace who you are and be the individual you believe you should be.
If we leave it up to society, we’ll be molded into perfectly sculpted dolls with a limited vocabulary. We’ll be submissive, hypersexualized (against our will); every woman would be exactly the same. Don’t let society do that to you.
You’re not a doll, you’re a human being; most importantly you’re a woman.
Women were created to nurture, care, and breathe life into those they care about. We bring dead things to life and blossom things others thought could never bloom. Women are superheroes, or at least the closest thing we have to them. We’re multitaskers, business minded, logical, sympathetic, and so many other things no one man could ever wrap his mind around. It’s simply amazing to think about, how we’re all so different but just the same.
This post isn’t just to inform you all on what a woman is or her worth because a woman’s worth cannot be explained or measured. This is a post to encourage you all to be the woman you want and feel you could be. It’s a post to remind each and every one of you (male or female) that a woman is more than special and is someone who should not be taken for granted.
Very often a woman’s role in society is overshadowed or overlooked by many. Our roles are often deemed as “easy” or simply “not that hard,” but any woman will dispute this. In fact, we have the hardest roles on earth. We have to be so many things to so many people while maintaining who we are and how we see ourselves. We’re pressured to be smart, a mother, a daughter, a friend, a wife, a nurturer, sexy, a great listener, a cook, caretaker, and the list goes on and on. We have so many things riding on us the pressure can seem immeasurable and it is. That’s why a little encouragement and inspiration is needed every once and a while.
So when the pressure gets too tough and society makes you feel like you’re not good enough, remember that you’re a woman:
YOU ARE EVERYTHING! But most importantly, YOU ARE THAT GIRL!
How do you rock your self-expression? Tell us about it below.
