Being a woman can mean a lot of things. Unfortunately sometimes society decides that for us and that’s why here are 5 reminders we all need!

1. Be assertive!
Women are taught to be problem-solvers, sweet and dismissive. But how are people going to know if you never tell them what you’re actually thinking? Whether at work or with friends, your opinions are important – remember that.
2. Validation is for parking!
It’s easy to lose ourselves in the process of gaining acceptance from other people. Just focus on those who love and support you, the rest don’t matter! You do you boo!
3. Family vs. Career?
While focusing on yourself is important, it doesn’t mean that being in a relationship and starting a family will set you back from all of your goals! It’s 2019: there is a way to do both – and like a boss, while you’re at it.
4. We’re all in this together!
Let’s face it, the people you will be compared to most in life are other women. It’ll happen, just don’t fall for it. And remember, “A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.”
5.Hard work pays off!
Motivation, determination, intelligence, ambition and resilience… these are assets that will get you to your wildest dreams.
Wherever you are on this journey we call womanhood, I hope you enjoy it! “You can always tell who the strong women are. They’re the ones building one another up instead of tearing each other down!”
