Understanding the cultural codes implicit in language is essential to understand our reality and most importantly, understanding yourself. This is becoming self-aware of who you are, what you have become, why, what’s expected from you based on your gender, background, nationality, age, etc. and going beyond the mind and what’s been taught to you to gradually and eventually see and feel what’s truly in your soul. You can only find peace by being yourself and you get to know yourself by knowing what’s around you and how and why you’ve been shaped that way. A big part of you is a product of the environment, but fighting what it is or holding anger against the agents and factors which caused it and drifted you away from your essence is frustrating, draining and won’t help in any way. To me, adulthood is an on-going learning process: self-introspection along with analysing and exploring yourself and the environment to once again, (as opposed to judging and letting resentment rule your life) gaining awareness and perspective of life from within. Awareness is the seed for any purposeful transformation. Women have been historically excluded, constrained, repressed and discouraged from knowledge, power and even their own sexuality. A lot has been achieved but still a lot must be done. Just see how ‘being the boss’ applies to something cool usually applied to males, while being bossy (more often related to women, has got a negative connotation). Yes, I’m powerful (but not superior in any way), I’m driven (but still vulnerable as anyone else), I’m passionate (but very rational too), determined (despite all doubts) and bossy AF 😎 And I love myself as much as I love you all, genuine people, and this game called life 💛💚💜❤️🖤✌🏼😘‘I just love bossy women. I could be around them all day. To me, bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It means somebody’s passionate, engaged, ambitious and that doesn’t mind leading’.
