🐟Deep Cove, Vancity
To all the girls who were told they couldn’t, and to those who were told they should not. To all the girls who were looked down upon, hurt, and beaten - and have been left broken apart. To all the girls who were taught that there is only one way to do things and that dreams are just a feel-good tale. To the girls who were called names because they refused to act in a more socially acceptable way. To the girls who were once laughed at for reading, because she is starting to learn too much. To all the girls, who were raised to just obey- I think this is the time to speak out.
There will be many times where people will try to bring you down or find happiness in your suffering. There will be times that people will call you names to crush the way you think about yourself. But the truth is, the one they are really trying to convince here is themselves- not you. I believe that, what people say about others are usually just a reflection of their own insecurities, because if you are happy with your life, what you have and who you are, you won’t even have time to waste minding other people’s business. The truth is whoever brings people down are usually the ones who feel too insecure that they had to step on other people to boost their ego. Trust me, it will take a lot of work to find that peace between yourself and the world, it will take time not to always feel bad when you decide to stand up for what and who you think you are, rather than what just people “say” you are. It will take time to forgive yourself and to back away from the life that you once thought was “right” but once you do - nothing and nobody will be able to stop you.
If you can turn your back from all those people who gossip, and waste time talking about other people.. it will be LIBERATING. You will start to wonder why did you even bother to do those things before? Why did you even waste time and money on those “stuff” when you could be out there, travelling and meeting people who ARE ACTUALLY LIVING. If you indeed make that mistake, remember It’s just a tiny splash in an ocean of other things.
Correct it :)🥂
