“Women speaking up for themselves and for those around them is the strongest force we have to change the world.” — Melinda Gates
One of the biggest challenges we face is showing up in the world as ourselves.
We’re often so scared of being rejected or judged we don’t fully own who we are and what we believe in.
Not to mention, who wants to deal with family drama, hometown gossip or social media madness!
But Savvy, you have a good head on your shoulders, you know right from wrong and what you have to say matters. While not everyone may agree with you, you owe it to yourself to stand up and speak your truth.
If you see something going on you disagree with — say something.
If you feel you’re being treated unfairly — take a stand for yourself.
We don’t have to shout or stomp our feet. In fact, when we speak up in a respectful and calm way we’re often heard more.
The world may never be exactly how we want it, same goes with the people around us, even those we love most. But when we have the confidence to own who we are and share our beliefs and wants, our worlds become a whole lot better.
You owe it to yourself, to be yourself!
