Raise your hand if you have ever felt like your strength goals were at odds with your expression of femininity?
Wanna know some of the things that people have said to me?
>> Don’t let your arms get too big though!
>> But, you don’t want to look like THOSE girls, do you?
>> You shouldn’t wear that with a build like yours. 😑
…and so much more.
I don’t know that we can control the messages we receive everyday about beauty, and that’s not the point. You can, however, control the messages you internalize and say to yourself. Remember that showing up with authenticity and self confidence is born out of your inner dialogue – and these are the only messages that truly matter. Being unapologetically you is sexy, ok boo?
