Love this so had to repost!! #Repost @risingwoman with @get_repost
As little girls, our beliefs about the world and our bodies were shaped by our culture.
We grew up being told to cover up, show it off, be quiet, be loud, be gentle, be fierce, be soft, but be strong.
We are told: be feminine, but be bold. Be powerful, but not too powerful or you’ll push people away.
We are told “don’t be too easy” and “don’t be too difficult”. Don’t be so sensitive, but don’t take crap from anyone.
Don’t be too quiet and don’t be too intense.
And while the world tried to shape us into a hopeless mass of crumbled clay, the little girl inside of us still sits in confusion.
Who am I?
Who should I be?
Am I safe?
Will I be loved if I show the world who I really am?
Am I different from other women?
Will they like me?
You are every woman who came before you, and every woman who comes after you. Our time has come to let go of the stories, and relax into all of who we truly are.
It’s time to welcome every one of your parts a seat at the table.
The little girl
The loud one
The shy one
The wild woman
The wise one
You are beautiful. Just As you are. In every shape and form.
Quiet or Intense.
Shy or Bold.
You come with stories etched into your soul and onto your skin, through heartbreak and scars, memories and marks. All so lovable. No matter how the world has tried to shape you, here you are - standing true to yourself.
And if you feel a part of you has been lost along the way, trust that it’s safe to welcome her back now.
