Happy International Women’s Day to the best humans to ever exist on this planet.
I don’t know what it’s like to be a woman. But I do know that anything that has ever been discouraged for women or prohibited for women to do or taken away from women has been done for one reason.
The male ego. Which I do know all too well.
The word “strength” is thrown around a lot, but I think a lot about what it means to be weak.
In my world, during my day-to-day life, I don’t think I ever interact with a woman that anyone could consider weak by any standard.
Conversely, more men than not display weakness by its many definitions, and that includes the dude I have to deal with in the mirror every morning.
Weakness is often confused, but women show us what strength is. Vulnerability is strength. Using your heart and compassion is strength. Being open, honest, and talking about things is strength.
And I have been surrounded by the most amazing women, who represent aspects of every amazing person who identifies as a woman.
Keep showing us the way. I, for one, am willing to follow.
