Ladies, let’s be honest, you’re a fucking goddess and deep down you know it. We are living in a world that consistently is telling us women that we need to be less, do less, want for less and I don’t know about you but I am sick and tired of it all. I spend most of my days in sessions with women reminding them that they are fabulous creatures that deserve to be worshipped for the goddesses that they are and to have our society consistently saying the opposite is infuriating.
So – it is time to be honest: if you are reading this and you are a female – you have settled. Somewhere, with someone, with something – you have decided that what your heart desired was just “too much” for little ole you. Frankly ladies, it’s bullshit. Do you know how many women I have on my couch questioning why their husbands or their partners are not stepping up to the plate the way that they’ve asked? It’s too many to count. All of my life I’ve been told that “girls mature faster than boys, so be patient with them.” Why are we telling this to women only? Why is there not another version being peddled to men that say they should look to us for leadership, intelligence and grace?
I know that there are those men out there who deeply believe these things. They believe in women, they believe in our power and our grace, however, they are far too little of them for my comfort. So, we women, settle for men that treat us slightly better than we treat themselves and think that is what we deserve. Or women settle for workplaces that “give them a chance” instead of fighting for the place that is grateful to have them.
Status quo and bare minimum has got to go, ladies.
We have spent far too long in the shadows. We have settled for less than what our power deserves for much longer than should have ever been allowed. So how do we rise? I’ve got some suggestions:
When all else fails – call your therapist. 😉
