and I really don’t plan on reading it. But, I joined this goal for a reason and I want to remind myself why.
Women are powerful. I don’t think many understand that, or even have the slightest clue at how powerful we are. A lot of the time, I think of “if only” statements about women and their situations, and the one that comes to mind every time is if only she realized her self worth.
That’s how I see this goal – my self worth. I don’t need to be “wild” per the collegiate dictionary, or succulant in a sexual way – I recognize my power. I realize that my words have power, my actions have power, and I am not living my life, wasting time “trying” certain things or “socializing” with certain people. It’s not worth it.
Ever since I was little, I never viewed myself as less than anyone else. Those usual peer experiences never affected me – no boy knew me more than I knew myself, no girl could put me down. And that’s not to say I didn’t make mistakes, but that I learned very quickly. I wasn’t any less powerful because of someone or something in my life affecting me in negative ways. I learned and walked away.
I’m rambling and I don’t know why – but I wish I could have every girl feel this inner power. It seems as if that was possible, every woman would be educated, every society would be improved, and the world would just be…better.
I guess I wish more women would just stop taking shit from people. I wish they would wise up and realize they’re just wasting their time. Sometimes, I get so ruffled at seeing or reading or hearing about such things, that I just want to grab the girl by her shoulders and shake her! What are you doing?! Why are you doing this? Don’t you see?
