Bitchology

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.

This oldĀ simplest advice is often the hardest to follow.

But consider this: today will pass, whether or not we enjoy it. We can’t magically erase our problems or heal that hurts, but we can choose our basic life stance.

Will we make a habit of worrying and fretting, or will we try to live with a spirit of trust and optimism?
