Reading Time: 4 minutes I am profoundly bored and painfully tired of conversations about fighting the patriarchy when we can’t get behind other women who want to lead and are qualified to do so. Lip service isn’t going to break anything and that’s exactly what we’re doing.

Then and only then are you able to stop editing yourself to make yourself more appealing or to meet someone else’s expectations. You can speak your mind without fear of consequence. You can show up as you one-hundred percent of the time. You can look yourself in the mirror and recognize your own face with crystalline clarity that can only be had when you’re standing alone.
