You don’t owe an apology for being a strong woman.
When your voice carries too much strength, they will ask you to lower your volume. When you speak your mind, they will find flaws in every word you say.
But understand this means something huge.
This means you are doing something right.
When they try to box you in, keep breaking through every wall they try to place in your way. When they scoff at your ambition, work even more brilliantly to show how wrong they are. When they make you feel small, grow taller until you tower over them and their ignorance.
These people will never admit it, but a powerful woman is their biggest fear.
Strong women aren’t silent. You don’t stay silent if you have a problem with something. You speak up. You tell the truth. You don’t let a man or anyone else make you feel inferior.
Strong women know who they are. You aren’t going to change yourself for anyone. You stand strong in your values & know that you believe in. You aren’t going to back down if someone has a problem with your voice. You aren’t going to let a man make you go quiet.
A powerful woman is their biggest fear. They have no idea what to do, with all your glory and grace. You represent all of their insecurities.
Keep building and evolving and burning so bright those who have hurt you will be forced to wear sunglasses. Keep being a force to reckon with.
This world need more powerful women like you.
