Courage to be Yourself

“Discomfort is a small price to pay for growth.”

Many women find it difficult to say “No.” So they keep saying “Yes.”

Some women hurt when they hear praise. They shake their heads and deny their worth.

Many women resist love. They are the caregivers, but they are afraid to be taken care of.

Sometimes a woman wants to get intimate, but she is held back by shame.

Fear, shame and doubt eat away at your self-esteem. Today, decide the course YOU want to take. Don’t always feel compelled to flow with the current.

Say “No” firmly and loudly when you need to. When someone praises you, smile gently yet proudly. Allow yourself to be loved and cared for. Take control of your intimate moments by deciding and expressing what YOU want.

Allow discomfort to wash over you and fade away. Do the things that you REALLY want and throw away the mask that has been hiding you. You can do it!
