PROUD TO BE A BITCH!

很久前朋友轉寄給我的文章. 一直好喜歡. 今天把它挖出來記載在Blog上........

~ from an unknown author on the internet~

I'M A BITCH

When I stand up for myself and my beliefs, they call me a bitch.

When I stand up for those I love, they call me a bitch.

When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts, or do things my own way, they call me a bitch.

Being a bitch entails raising my children to be strong people who have a solid sense of personal and social responsibility, who are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in and who love and respect themselves for the beautiful beings they are.

Being a bitch means that I am free to be the wonderful creature that I am, with all my own intricacies, contradictions, quirks and beauty.

Being a bitch means I won't compromise what's in my heart.

It means I live my life MY way.

It means I won't allow anyone to step on me.

When I refuse to tolerate injustice and speak up against it, I am defined as a bitch.

The same thing happens when I take time for myself instead of being everyone's maid, or when I act a little selfish.

I am proud to be a bitch!

It means I have the courage & strength to allow myself to be who I truly am and won't become anyone else's idea of what they think I "should" be.

I am outspoken, opinionated, and determined.

By God, I want what I want, and there is nothing wrong with that!

So, try to stomp on me, try to douse my inner flame, try to squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me. You won't succeed.

And, if that makes me a bitch, so be it.

I embrace the title and am proud to bear it.

Hmm...

The short essay reflects or signals a bitch is more than merely a bitch in intself. And you're doing a brilliant job for revealing this point. : P

I wish I could be a bitch sometimes, so I don't have to please every single person around me... but I'm such a coward~
