"Real isn't how you are made...It's a thing that happens to you"
Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.

Bossiness != leadership
How about you do the child a favor and not encourage traits that will make their adult life and those of the people who will have to be around them needlessly unpleasant?
…if people hadn’t told me i was bossy when i was younger, i’d be even more insufferable than i am now. i wouldn’t even want to be around myself. but no, let’s delude children into thinking every negative aspect of themselves is a positive one!
Bossiness isn’t leadership; leadership is showing people how something’s done and what to do and then having everyone partcipate and work bc of u, bossiness is telling them to do it while you watch
Exactly. Leadership is about finding where in a group people best fit, motivating people to work towards the goal, inspiring people so that they may output quality work, and providing guidance and perspective when necessary.
Bossy people very often have terrible leadership skills.
I think the point is that young boys are rarely called bossy, they’re called assertive or that they’re natural leaders where as little girls are called bossy. I do agree though - say it how it is. If I wasnt told I was too sensitive as a kid I’d be even worse now!
I am all for curvy women and all for supporting them but not at the determinant to someone else because they may be a little less curvy. Images like the top one started because curvy women and men who like curvy women wanted women who aren’t a size 0 to feel beautiful, but in the process they are making those size 0s feel bad about themselves. Everyone is beautiful. You’re beautiful whether you are a size 0 or plus sized. No one needs to feel bad about themselves, to make someone else feel better.
I’m a curvy woman and I agree! It pisses me off when people say “real woman” - real women are all women and people who identify as women. So screw putting criteria on people!
can we talk about this lady please? How she was an elderly, single woman who literally left all of her property to her cats and how the artists could have just made her a stereotypical crazy old cat lady but instead they made her absolutely fabulous and graceful and she still twirls in front of her mirror like she’s pretending to be a princess at age 60/70/80-something?
