The women of the world are constantly reminded of who they need to be.
By: Eva Jackson
They’re told that if they don’t fit a certain idea of femininity, that they have failed. It’s true that there are things that every woman needs to have in her life, but they’re not what society is telling them.
It’s not about appearance, pleasing people, or being who the world wants them to be. These are the things that every woman should have.
A Sense of Self
We are only as much as we tell ourselves we are. In life, the most important possessions that you have are your identity and self-worth. These are things that no one should ever be able to take away from you.
It doesn’t matter who you are or who you want to be. Every woman on this earth should have the right to choose the person that they want to be. They should have the freedom to express themselves however they see fit.
People Who Love Them
Humans are naturally social creatures. Without connections to other people, we can become depressed or anxious. Having people around that love and support you is a gift that we shouldn’t take for granted.
Every woman should feel loved. They should have at least one person who makes them feel cared for. It’s crucial that they have loving people around them who support them and let them know that they are loved.
We all have bad days. Sometimes, these bad days can make us act out and be hurtful to other people. Although it may happen sometimes, we should all strive to avoid lashing out. Kindness is a virtue that we all need.
Of course, we all have our moments, but every single woman out there should strive to be kind. They need to show compassion to each other, to strangers, to the people they love, and to themselves. Women everywhere should have kindness as their ally.
When our time comes to pass, and we look back on our lives, we all want something wonderful to remember. It won’t be our possessions that we’ll think of, but our memories, both good and bad.
Every woman should have enough amazing memories to outweigh the bad ones. They should be able to look back and remember happy moments from their lives. It should be the remembrance of a life well-spent.
It doesn’t have to be physical strength, mental strength is far more important. However, it’s not something that we are born with, it’s something that we can all learn and improve on.
Instead of being forced to lie down and let the world decide what’s best for them, women should have the power to fight. They should be able to find the strength that it takes to stand up for themselves, their rights, and for whatever they know is fair and equal.
The world can knock us down and tell us that we’re worthless. Listening to the voice that says that you’re not good enough will only bring sadness and despair into your life. No one should ever have to listen to that voice.
Self-confidence is something that the world will try to take away from you, but don’t let it. Every woman should have confidence in themselves. They should know they’re worth and know how powerful they truly are.
A Chance to Relax
The challenge of getting through each day can be exhausting. We can easily become mentally and physically drained if we constantly work without a break. Being able to rest is so important to our health.
Every woman needs something that will allow her to relax. Be it a place, a book, a hobby, or a person, they should have something that lets them unwind. Even if it’s just for a few minutes, every woman deserves a break.
We hear horror stories every day of people being hurt or harassed, even from their own homes. Safety is something that many people take for granted. Others, however, know just how fragile it really is.
No woman should be made to feel unsafe. Every woman deserves to feel protected and free from harm. They should be able to live their lives without the fear of being hurt.
You can never learn too much. There is an endless supply of knowledge in the world on an infinite number of topics. Without it, the world is so much smaller and bleaker.
Knowledge is power, and every woman deserves that power. They should have an education, and the freedom to continue to learn every day. Whatever it is they want to know about the world, they should have access to that knowledge.
Because you are women, people will force their thinking on you, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go. Don’t live in the shadows of people’s judgment. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom.
– Amitabh Bachchan
Every woman deserves the right to choose their lives. They should have the ability to pick for themselves what they wear, how they act, and who they spend their time with. No woman should be forced into anything that they don’t want.
Woman are not here for anyone else other than themselves. They are their own people who should be free to live their lives to the absolute fullest. Every woman should have the chance to be happy.
Although many women around the world have freedom, happiness, and security, not everyone does. Do not forget the women who are harassed every day. Remember the women who are forced to lead lives that they do not want to lead and strive to show your support for them.
