Staying put in a bad marriage and being unhappy is safe and easy because it’s familiar. We commit to misery because that’s what we know. Well, I decided that I wanted more and deserved better, from inside out. Real fierce and fearless women are truth-seekers. They communicate. Real fierce and fearless women admit their mistakes and work to correct them. We stand up and use our voices for things other than self-promotion. We don’t stand by and let racism, sexism, and homophobia run rampant on our watch. Real fierce and fearless women celebrate and complement other women. We recognize and embrace the notion that their shine in no way diminishes our life, in fact it makes our lives shine brighter.
Such simple yet wise words. Refreshing reminder.
