- I wish I could say that I love being a woman all the time, the truth is I find it really hard sometimes. The pressure to be beautiful, to feel beautiful. The piles of make up I put on and hard time I give myself for not being a size 8. The shame I feel that I get jealous of other women, that I am intimidated by other women. The annoyance of bleeding every month, to have my hormones take charge, to have boobs that get in the way! To feel ashamed of my muffin top and the money I spend on my hair and skin care and clothing. I do feel so much pressure all the time, to be the best of myself and in turn I just feel like a disappointment, so today I want to celebrate women that make me feel less pressure to be what I'm expected to be. To @aliciakeys
for going make up free. To @lenadunham
for sharing another body type on screen. For @fireandjoy
for constantly sharing her truth. To @wonderful_u
for being honest about her mental health. To all the women who decide to bare themselves in earnest which allows us all to step back and realise that we are strong and able, just as we are.
