"Just be a good girl." was last said to me at the age of 31 after having had the courage to be completely vulnerable when asking a close family member for a deeper, more meaningful connection with them.
It was rejection, the condescending kind, and it surely wasn't the answer I had hoped or even braced myself for.
But it did not hurt.
Because, in the end, what they failed to see was that I am not a girl any longer.
I have become a woman who is unafraid of the depth of her feelings.
I have become a woman who is unafraid of asking for what she wants.
I have become a woman who is unafraid to stand in her own power.
At times, being a woman is about strength, courage and convictions.
But for me, the essence of womanhood is the level of trust I place in myself and my emotions.
It is not so much about using these emotions to excel at whatever I choose to, it is about the value of experiencing them fully.
I know that I have the powerful capacity to explore the depths of despair as much as I relish the peaks of pleasure - and appreciate everything in between.
I am emotionally grounded. That's what being a woman means to me.
When you are ready to embrace the unique woman that you are, message me.
