The Power of You

I’ve always found it terribly unfortunate that so many people allow others to define their self-worth. If you think about it, it is kind of insane to defer to others when it comes to determining how much value we have. Maybe you didn’t get into your dream school and that's always haunted you. Perhaps, you’ve been overlooked for a promotion time and time again and you’re at your wit’s end. The examples can be endless, but the sentiment remains: other people dictating what you are or are not worthy of.

The Ghost I Call Empathy

I can honestly say I pride myself on being empathetic. I feel other people’s pain as if it were my own. It’s not because I think I’m so perfect, it’s simply because I am able to recognize my privilege. The older I get, the more I feel like it’s my duty to help other women. I sincerely feel like it’s my job to understand the different issues women face.
