Listen up! .
I want to speak to all of you today about a behaviour, mindset and thought that goes completely ignored but impacts all of us. I haven’t really witnessed anyone to talk about this issue.
It is called the “TYPICAL GIRL”
A woman who likes to dress up, highlighting her feminine side, the woman who wears the perfect pink nail paint, the one who is down to earth, likes to get Mehendi done on festivals, wears a smile more often than not, loves flowers, enjoys every ritual at weddings, laughs out loud at jokes as a reflex instead of sitting and first analysing if she wants to, doesn’t necessarily smoke or drink. Okay. Literally all of this might not resonate with you. But if you found a little part of yourself here, you might have experienced how women today are shamed to be that TYPICAL GIRL and develop a guilt about it.
I want to hug all of you and tell you that if you are that TYPICAL GIRL and like all/any of the above mentioned things, you don’t need to feel guilty about it. Sure, there are all sorts of people out there and as cliche as it may appear to be a person like that, you don’t need to hide your personality away given that you enjoy being that person.
Now, coming to those who shame you for being you. These people are mostly filled with insecurities, literally survive on whatever feeds their ego and gives them the much needed validation to prove them that they are better in whichever way they seek.
So, stop shaming people for being themselves and stop feeling guilty for whoever you are! You need noone’s approval to enjoy being yourself.
Also, it is not even worth it to address those who like to feel good enough by simply shaming someone for being overweight, short, a simple person, well rooted and the list goes on. I really hope that I am able to address this issue which is still not on the surface per say but pertains deeply in our psyche.
If you have anything which you would like to share. Please go ahead. If you are uncomfortable sharing experiences with such a large group of people, please free to DM. I will respond to you without fail.
