The most common way people gave their power is by thinking they don’t have any — Alice Walker
Hey my beautiful girls, where are you lost? I saw you thinking about other’s perception and letting yourself fade a little. Little by little until you forget yourself.
You mold yourself to please others. But this makes you die a little. You feel this pain of slow death — a pain so thorough and exhausting.
Your face has become a piece of canvas which you paint daily to hide your imperfections. Those imperfections that are beautiful and inspiring.
You want to be a so-called strong woman but let yourself defeated by the superficial society. You leave your dreams behind, justifying mortality while the world’s opinion holds importance as if it is concrete and mortal.
Open your eyes to the beauty around you, open your mind to the wonders of life, open your heart to those who love you, and always be true to yourself.
Your daughter will look up to you. She will try to find a role model in her dear mother. She needs someone to tell her, ‘ You are good the way you are. Be authentic and strong. Hold your passion near your heart and use it to make this world a better place.’
Open your eyes to the beauty around you, open your mind to the wonders of life, open your heart to those who love you, and always be true to yourself — Maya Angelou
I want you to tell her to read those great women who believed in themselves and lead the mass to follow them. Women that wanted to please themselves and not to satisfy the world.
I want you to make them fearless.
I want you to gather your empathy again. Get up and leave the cage of your own mind. Shred the barriers. Recognize your power and don’t be a prisoner of your own beliefs.
