Women Needs To Stand Strong

Things a woman should never apologize for and I’m telling you…

1. Never apologize for pursuing what makes you happy even if you need to quit your job, transfer schools, or move across a different country. Always do what you really want.

2. Never apologize for using proper English. Keeping it real does not mean speaking Ebonics.

3. Never apologize for giving your best in a relationship that just did not work out.

4. Never apologize for being successful.  Only haters want to keep you at their level. 

5. Never apologize for crying. Wear waterproof mascara and express yourself freely. 

6. Never apologize for still being single. You are being picky or choosy with the guys you date. You’re not even looking for the perfect man because there are no such things as perfect. You are waiting for the right man. 

7. Never apologize for those ten pounds you need to lose. People who truly care about you will accept you for who you are. 

8. Never apologize for being frugal. Just because you save your money instead of blowing it on the latest fashion emergency, does not mean you’re cheap. 

9. Never apologize for being a single Mom. Having a baby is a blessing.

10. Never apologize for treating yourself to something special. Sometimes, you have to show yourself some appreciation.

11. Never apologize for leaving an abusive relationship. Your safety should always be a priority.

12. Never apologize for keeping the ring even if you won’t hear the wedding bells chime. 

13. Never apologize for setting high standards in a relationship. You know what you can tolerate and what simply gets on your nerves.

14. Never apologize for saying NO.

15. Never apologize for asking what you want in bed. If you don’t, then who will do that?

16. Never apologize for wearing a weave. You bought it, so it’s yours. 

17. Never apologize to your new friends about old friends. There’s a reason why they became a part of your girl friends since day one. 

18. Never apologize for ordering dessert or probably more than one dessert. 

19. Never apologize for dating outside your race. Just because you found Mr. Right across the color line does not mean you don’t love your own race or culture.

20. Never apologize for not knowing how to cook. Even if you can’t burn like Grandma does at least you know how to order a good take out meal.

21. Never apologize for your taste in clothes. It’s your style.

22. Never apologize for changing your mind.

23. Never apologize for exercising your right to choose. Besides it’s your body and you know what’s best and good for you.

24. Never apologize for making more money than your man. You work hard and you deserve to get paid.

25. Never apologize for being just yourself. Keep your head up high and keep moving forward! 

For all the ladies out there… don’t let yourself put you down. Be brave because in the end you will gain what you truly deserve.  It is always worth a try to do all of these things!
