You are capable of so many incredible things.
I know you might not believe that because there are so many focuses against you in media, government policies, business, and more. They’re trying to tear you down.
But you don’t have to let them tear you down because you are much stronger than the forces against you.
You’re beautiful no matter what the media portrays as “beauty.” Beauty is every size, every color, every age and every cultural background. Your natural features (even the ones you hate) are beautiful because they are yours. Please don’t forget that.
Every woman out there is at a different point in their life, and I’m sure they’re all equally questioning their worth because that is what standards do to you—they make you believe that your choices are wrong and inferior. Regardless of what season you are in life, I hope you relate to one of these stages:
For the women in college, there are three numbers that will NEVER define you: your GPA, the number of people you slept with, or the number on the scale. Remember that. There is so much more to you than numbers, so please don’t associate them with other women or yourself. We are stronger than that.
To the women who are out of college and trying to find their place in the world, don’t give up. You might go through jobs, rejections, redirection for your career and more; but keep chasing your dreams. Be a dream chaser. I promise you will find your place, and you will be happy. But if you’re not happy, I hope you feel confident in yourself to make changes so that you can be happy.
To women who are mothers, If you want to stay home and raise your children—wonderful. If you want to be a working mom so you can support your family’s financial needs—that’s equally wonderful. Don’t let someone think you’re doing the wrong things. You’re doing what’s best for you and your family. Remember that you’re doing the best you can, and that IS enough.
To women in their 50s and 60s, I can’t fully relate with what you’re going through at this point in your life. But I can tell you that doing what makes you happy is always the best decision. No matter what that may entail. On an unrelated note, don’t forget that you need to take time for yourself. You’ve raised a family and worked for years. If you can do one thing, make sure it’s to focus on yourself and your happiness.
To every woman out there,
You’re brave, you’re beautiful, and you’re worthy of all good things. Never let anyone tell you otherwise.
And I hope you always feel loved. Because you deserve it.
I hope you felt some encouragement from this post. Please share a comment of encouragement to other women.
