So today I was browsing through the many forwards in my inbox… Something I rarely ever do! Email forwards is something that actually tends to quite irk me… I mean I am not into the whole chain letter thing, and other than that there are some very crude, rude and not so humorous forwards that people tend to send me which I will usually just end up deleting upon its arrival to my inbox! Today however was a different story… My Grandma of all people sent me an email entitled ‘Bitchology’. That was all that was in the subject… There wasn’t FW or FWD before the line Bitchology… The subject was just Bitchology — plain and simple. Of course seeing that my Grandma had sent this email to me… it really intrigued me to open it and I am so glad I did. This email was one of those emails that you just sit there and read, and really ponder all the points that the sender is trying to get across to you. I thought this email was empowering in a way and very cute… so of course I had to share it! 🙂
When I stand up for myself and my beliefs, they call me a bitch.
When I stand up for those I love, they call me a bitch.
When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts or do things my own way, they call me a bitch.
Being a bitch means I won’t compromise what’s in my heart. It means I live my life MY way. It means I won’t allow anyone to step on me.
When I refuse to tolerate injustice and speak against it, I am defined as a bitch.
The same thing happens when I take time for myself instead of being everyone’s maid, or when I act a little selfish.
It means I have the courage and strength to allow myself to be who I truly am and won’t become anyone else’s idea of what they think I ‘should’ be.
I am outspoken, opinionated and determined. I want what I want and there is nothing wrong with that!
So try to stomp on me, try to douse my inner flame, try to squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me. You won’t succeed.
And if that makes me a bitch, so be it!!! I embrace the title and am proud to bear it.
