Disclosure | Latch (Daniela Andrade cover)
A man cannot define my worth. I’ve always known that, but when thrown into that situation, I could never fully convince myself to believe it. Until recently. When you’ve been treated with disrespect and degradation almost all your life, you hit a point where the toleration ceases. I know who I am and understand that I am nothing close to perfect. I do what I feel in my heart is best for the benefit of myself and others, and I believe that is what makes me such a genuine person.
I refuse to let any man believe that I need him, or that without him, i’m nothing. Been there, done that, and never again will I let that thought consume me. If you have ever witnessed a woman getting belittled, abused, or submitting to/by a man, i’m sure you understand that she isn’t deserving of such treatment. No one is. So I came to a simple realization that I am that woman. We all are. Put your foot down and hold your ground. Ladies, never let a man make you feel as if you are invaluable or useless, because I promise you it’s all bullshit. Don’t give him that power. Don’t let him win.
You are deserving of everything and more, I promise.
You are worth it.
