I’m aware that the high ranks, the smart pants and our very own society mock us for being passionate, for devoting our time and energy to someone and something we find happiness in, but please, if you ever happen to stumble upon your favourite artist, be polite, be respectful, be your loving self, but tell them how much they mean to you. Tell them how their job affected your life through your best and worst times, how much inspiration you drew from them, how they make you feel like you want to be a better person. Like you’re a part of something bigger and powerful, like you’re never truly alone. Please, please share your love with them and whatever positive feeling was sparked in you by being a part of their community.
And to all of you wonderful women out there, daily finding yourselves in difficult, delicate positions in particularly male-chauvinistic professional fields, don’t let anyone bring you down. Don’t ever allow anyone to debase you and your efforts just because some wisely picked insult can easily throw a woman out of the game. Be powerful, be brave and remind everyone, every day, through your results and your dignity why you are the best they can ever get. Love what you do, count on yourself, but team up with the people you work with and protect that at all costs. Be proud of what you accomplish, because it’s the sum of a struggle and an effort and a dedication most men out there will hardly ever come to imagine. And if bitch is all they have to drag you down, well 🙃
