For the Ladies
I feel the internal struggle of being “enough” from women everywhere, mainly because I face the same struggles. For some reason, we have to be pretty or lady-like in manners & appearances that only society finds acceptable - but in doing these things (such as, but not limited to, having a hairless body, dolled up face, & answering to every man that demands it), we often deny ourselves the person that is truly us. So here’s what I have to say for every woman out there: don’t cover up that beautiful face if you don’t want to. Don’t force yourself to be someone you don’t want to be. No matter which way you twist it, we are women & every woman is beautiful & unique in their own way. So the next time you sigh in annoyance from upholding the standards of being a lady, ask yourself who you’re really doing it for & why. Who said you had to be this type of pretty or have that type of mannerism? If not you, then who? Why does it even matter?
