People say fear is a choice.
Well, so is ignorance. Stupid is a choice.
Being less than yourself is a choice.
Dumbing yourself down for others. Lifting less weight because you’re scared of being strong. Snarky gossip. All choices.
Keeping your mouth shut when you really want to stand up and take on the forces of hate in this world? That’s a choice too.
In my opinion, we spend far too much time on being “good girls” and far too little time on being badass bitches.
Imagine what your life would be like if you just said every morning, “Here’s who the hell I am. Time to get shit done.”
Hide your light under a basket? Smash the basket. Blind the crowd with your light.
Even the Bible says “Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.”
Stop hiding. Go fucking light up the world.
