“Girls can’t be funny,” huh? WRONG.
It’s totally your decision, and nobody should make you feel bad about it.
You know when you get worked up and people tell you to calm down? Don’t listen to them! It’s OK to be passionate — don’t let anyone dictate your emotions.
Work your butt off and live by your own standards, not others’.
Some people may stick their nose up at maternity leave or say that moms have it “easy.” We know they’re wrong.
You should never feel guilty for being successful.
It can be tough sometimes, but there’s nothing wrong with sticking to your guns.
Otherwise, how will anybody know what you want?
Some people will make you feel like a bad person for breaking up with someone, but just know that you’re doing the right thing. You do you.
Oh, it’s not “cool” to be a girl who likes a salad? Oh, a pastrami on rye is a guy’s sandwich? Well, too bad. You do you, girl!
When someone calls you “bossy” for being confident, just play it off and keep on keepin’ on.
You should never feel guilty for the way you dress, and nobody should treat you poorly because of it.
There are just some things women should never have to justify.
