Now girls are often raised to see love only as a giving. Woman are praised for their love when tha love is an act of giving. But to love is to give and to take. Please love by giving, and by taking. Give to be given. If you are only giving and not taking, you’ll know. You’ll know from that small and true voice inside you that we females are so often socialized to silence. Don’t silence that voice. Dare to take.
— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
