GIRL POWER

GIRL POWER

THIS POST GOES OUT TO ALL THE GIRLS OUT THERE WHO'VE BEEN TOLD THAT YOU'RE WORTHLESS, POINTLESS, & DIRECTIONLESS.

To all you girls who doubt your abilities to achieve your dreams, to the girls whose dreams have been crushed before even seeing the light. Enough is enough. I come from a culture where I should be married by 18, having kids at 19, & find it normal to be called "mom" by 20. I am 18 & I'm single. Next month I'll be 19 & I don't have a ring on my finger. Do I care? Hell no! Thank God this is the 21st century & I don't need to give a damn that I'm single. Sorry to disappoint y'all, but some of us girls don't whine all day about why we're single & waste our tears on stupid boys who are barley hitting puberty! 

It's OKAY for us to have dreams. 

It's OKAY for us to want an education.

It's OKAY to be 19 & single.

It's OKAY to have more girlfriends than boyfriends.

It's OKAY to want to look good for yourself only.

It's OKAY to want to do more with your life than just get married. 

It's OKAY to date & not get married after day 3.

It's OKAY!

I'm so over being told that girls can't be as smart as boys & that I shouldn't fight for my rights a girl. Was it my fault I was born a girl? Why are we persecuted for any little mistake? Just the other day at the beach, a big group of people were gathered around a beer pong table, there were more guys than girls, and one of the guys from our group pointed out that "those girls by the table are sluts." "Umm, what about the guys? Do you think they're f*?! boys because they're playing beer pong?" "No, because we're boys so it doesn't count." 

Like, seriously WTF is wrong with us? I thought we were millennials. I thought that the people that I surrounded myself with understood that just because a girl is at the beach playing beer pong with friends, doesn't make her a slut. It's that kind of rhetoric that completely turns me off. 

Anyways, I just felt like sharing some words of encouragement if any of you girls were getting BULLIED by losers. At the end of the day, we're the stronger ones because we have to overcome the stereotypes of being girls. These two books are on my Summer Reading List. I'm learning a third language along with learning HOW TO FIND LOVE & SH*T LIKE THAT
