Recently a song was released stating women don’t cry we collect or send out an invoice. Sadly, women are taking their own message from the song but in reality, it’s NOT ok to act like we don’t cry, or we surely shouldn’t be looking to get even with anyone. Unless getting even to you means you rebuilding yourself and that is the way to send a message but never to hurt or start drama in relationships or friendships. I know drama sells especially if you are a celebrity but that is not healthy eventually you end up punishing yourself. We are NOT perfectly strong all the time and that simply is not true and that is ok.
We need to stop being told that we need to dress and act perfect all the time because we do cry, we hurt, and we don’t wake up looking pretty every day. We have weak moments and that is ok, crying and having low moments doesn’t make you weak it makes us human. Just as long as we pick ourselves up and keep it moving. You are allowed to cry it out just as long as you don’t stay stuck in that feeling. If anything, it’s healthy to get out a good cry. I personally know that when I cry and let it all out, I actually can think better afterward, it helps me figure out my next step in the situation.
Women let’s start embracing our imperfectly perfect selves and stop comparing ourselves to others because many lie about what they are going through just to keep up with society. We all go through things differently and that is ok. It’s ok NOT to be ok, all the time. Find your path and your power in your own way.
