my dear women, may we see, hear, protect and support each other.
may we give each other the room to express ourselves without fear of being shamed, judged or threatened.
may we be understanding of different upbringings, cultures, relationship concepts and life goals.
may we treat each other with an open mind, warm heart and interest, rather than rejection and ignorance.
may we ask each other genuine and good-natured questions, when needed.
may we tell each other 'it's okay - you are good the way you are.'
it's okay if you love women, men or both.
it's okay if you are interested in polyamory, just as it is okay if you are monogamous.
it's okay if you cover up, show skin, have short hair, long hair, shaved skin, unshaved skin, wear make up or not.
you are beautiful - you deserve to feel beautiful for who you are, right now.
you shine your own light.
it's okay if you want 5 children or none at all. not every woman dreams of living the classic family life and some, for various reasons, can't have it - it doesn't make them less of a woman and they don't need to be reminded of the so called 'biological clock'.
trust me, they are aware and quite frankly, it's a personal and sensitive topic.
it's okay if you outgrow people or even yourself - allow yourself to evolve and seek new directions.
it's okay if you want to settle down, travel the world, go back to school, get a divorce, seek professional help or be a dog-obsessed bass player who swoons over fictional crushes, no biggie.
too often we are raised and conditioned to be rivals, to compare ourselves and dismiss each other due to our differences, when in fact we're all women, equals.
women with individual dreams, secret hopes, stories to tell, lessons to teach, hearts to touch and the ability to stand by each other - with tolerance and dignity.
