PSA (Validation from men)

Often in this patriarchal society each of us as women are taught over time that we need the validation of a man to make us. This regarding to our thoughts, aspirations, our voice or whatever project we might be working on. I can remember countless times I’ve come across me both in my family and at home who you’ve belittled me. They’ve lead me to belittle that my ideas and goals are ridiculous. It’s a shame I see men who are always encouraged to do whatever they please or aspire to but when it comes to us women people are so quick to label us and box us into a certain realm or sector. The masses mainly men are so quick to tell us what we can and cannot do with our bodies, with our goals, what we say and how we say it. Just remember that you are capable of anything you aspire to do. Don’t look to a man to affirm your idea and give it his stamp of approval. That is unecessary. Stand firm in yourself, who you are and what you aspire to do with your life. Embrace your voice and who you are.
