13 Rights Every Woman Should Bravely Defend For Herself

13 Rights Every Woman Should Bravely Defend For Herself

Every woman is different in her own way. A woman has certain rights of her own that she should rightly assert. There is no difference between males and females. A woman and man have rights that are central to them and their individuality. Here is a list of rights that every woman in the world should bravely defend for herself as she is beautiful no matter what anyone says.

1. Her body no matter how it looks

No woman should have to desperately hate her body because of what people think about her. Why can guys live in peace but women have to resent their bodies? Isn’t this rigged? I definitely think it is. I used to be very skinny and then gained a little weight, and I was criticized during both these phases. I am happy regardless of how I look like because I know I am genuinely a nice person. No one should care about what you look like as long as you are not hurting or “offending” anybody. So, do not be ashamed of who you are. Embrace both inner and outer beauty because you are beautiful no matter what anybody says about you.

2. Her appearance

Be proud of the way you look. Whether tall, short, curvy, skinny, you are original. You can’t be replaced by anyone i

n this world because you are a one piece person. There is no one on this earth that can match up to you or your standards. Make sure you remind yourself this each day because it’s quite easy to forget and I never want to see you forget this. It is an essential part to your self-esteem and courage. Each women is beautiful in her own way. Never ever let anybody tell you are inferior to anybody else. They are flat out wrong.

3. Her judgment and concern over topics

Everyone is allowed to express concern over topics they find engaging or distressing. Women are entitled to their fair share of judgment and self-expression. Why can a man say his opinion while a women can’t? If men and women are truly equal, then both parties should be able to express their opinions without any tension of the world or other people. All people have a right to voice their opinion regardless of race, creed, or gender for the matter. Be bold, and be blunt! It is not who you are, but it is who you want to be and desire to be.

4. Her relationship status

Women do not always have to be in relationships. Sometimes, finding the right man is hard. Why is it a sin to be single? There is no shame in admitting that one has not found the right person yet. There is a time and place for everything. This includes relationships that are meant to be. A relationship will come when its mean to come. There is no hassle or rush in these sorts of things.

5. Her choice of a partner

A woman has the right to choose if she wants to be in a relationship or not. There is nobody out in the world that can tell a woman what she can and must do. The key is having confidence in yourself regardless of the outcome. I have learned this from going rock bottom and coming back up again. Relationships are meant for everyone. No one has the right to tell you to live a life determined by their choices or standards. Stand up for yourself and speak when necessary. You are you and nobody can take that away from you!

6. Her want of a relationship

Everyone is allowed a relationship. The same goes for females. Why is a woman criticized in a relationship but a man is not? If a woman wants one that is great. If she doesn’t that is also okay. This plays into our next subtopic of not wanting to have a relationship or choosing to be happy being completely single. Some of the most bravest women are single because they need nobody but themselves in a world (that tends to be cruel all too often).

7. Her denial of a relationship

A relationship will come when it is meant to come. If a woman does not want a relationship, she does not have to have one.There is no rush or no need for a relationship if it just does not come naturally from the heart. When a woman wants to be in a relationship she will vouch to be in one. No one can be in a relationship with someone’s force. Everything comes from the inside.

8. Her desire for children

Yes, we all see women having children and some not having them. Age is no barrier. A women can conceive anytime she feels like wanting to. A women is inborn with a mother-like instinct. Why must she curb it to fit into society’s thinking?

9. Her happiness or unhappiness

When a woman is not happy, it is alright. She is a human like all other people. She doesn’t constantly have to show that she is on top of the world if she really just feels down in the dumps. Sometimes it is in the best interest to just express yourself even if its not the best emotion. There is nothing better than being yourself and who you exactly are.

10. Her salary

Sometimes it becomes bitter talk when a woman starts earning more money to her male equivalent or partner. It does not matter the gender. It is through hard work and determination that one earns money, based on the context of his or her potential and strong-will. Don’t care about the protractors, believe in yourself, and your dedication, and craft! You are simply amazing the way you are.

11. Her strong ambitions

Only men do not have the liberty to pursue their passion. Women equally have the right to be ambitious and do what their heart tells them to do. Life is about seizing each of the moments that come your way. A woman is attractive especially when she is independent and what’s to do something on her own terms. She becomes all the more special.

12. Her success

If a female is successful, she should be proud of it, and never try to hide it from others. Why is it alright if a man is successful but if a women is, that there are tons of detractors? A female being successful calls for even more celebration, considering the history of “women’s rights” that we all fought for. Sometimes it is in the best interest to be a feminist. I know I am one big feminist, but I am proud of it, as we are tough and strong on the outside, but fragile and extremely emotional on the inside. We are beautiful creatures and we should be proud.

13. Her choice to show emotions

Whether happy or sad, a woman has the ability to choose to show emotions if she chooses to. When someone is happy or sad, or even angry, a person has the ability to choose to show it or not. In this case, we are talking about females. A female has the full right to choose to speak her opinion and show her emotion.

How to Train Your Brain to Be Optimistic

How to Train Your Brain to Be Optimistic

Let’s be honest. When you’re going through a difficult time in life, doesn’t it drive you crazy when someone says, “just be optimistic”?

Everyone has that one overly-optimistic “Positive Pam” friend who sees the good in everything. Trying to find anything to be happy about when you’re struggling feels unrealistic.

The question remains: “Why is it difficult to pull upon happy thoughts when everything in life feels like it’s falling apart?”

Well, the root of the problem lies in the brain. Your brain isn’t designed for happiness because its focus has always been on promoting survival, it saves the happy chemicals (dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin) for opportunities to meet a survival need.[1]

While all of this is true, it is still possible to train your brain to be optimistic so that you can find the silver lining amidst life’s greatest adversities.

You Can’t Be Positive All the Time

Before I talk about how you can do this, you must realize that you aren’t expected to be positive 100% of the time. You’re human and life happens.

Have you ever had a solid plan in place, and then life comes along and says, “Let’s explore rock bottom for a while instead?!” You’re allowed to feel sad, angry, or negative sometimes.

However, the trick is making sure that you don’t live in this place for too long. Disempowering emotions serve their purpose in the short-term but can become destructive to your overall quality of life in the long-term.

When it comes to thinking positively, I think a lot of people have a skewed understanding of what positivity should look like. You don’t have to sing in the rain or smile 24/7 to be deemed a positive person.

Appreciating the smallest of things can work wonders for your mindset, such that, over time, you start wiring your brain to seek out and expect more positives. This speaks to the power of having an attitude of gratitude.

Research has shown that gratitude can improve general well-being, increase resilience, strengthen social relationships, and reduce stress and depression.[2]

The more grateful you are, the happier you are.

So, what does all of this mean? Well, happiness won’t always be your automatic response. Rather, it’s a choice that you have to make every single day.

3 Ways You Can Train Your Brain to Be Positive

Similar to any habit, your brain conditions itself to think and behave in certain ways through repetition. Thus, if you engage in daily rituals that enhance your positive thinking, over time you will rewire and train your brain to become more positive.

Let’s talk about 3 ways that you can train your brain to be positive:

1. Challenge Negative Thoughts

Your mind is a powerful tool – you can either fill it with positive thoughts or negative ones. The average person has thousands of thoughts per day, 80% of which are negative, and 95% of which are exactly the same thoughts as the day before.[3]

If you’re like most people, you probably spend a lot of time in your head. This is where your inner critic loves to hang out and try to convince you of all the reasons why you’re not good enough or why things won’t work out.

Not surprisingly, if you play this disempowering record over and over again in your head, eventually you will start believing it.

People get into trouble when they define who they are based on how they think. You are not your thoughts, so don’t believe everything that you think. This is why it’s so important to practice challenging your negative thoughts.

The next time that you have a thought that doesn’t serve you, stop and reflect upon whether or not that thought is accurate. Once you determine where the fallacy is in your thinking lies, step back and ask yourself, “Is this thought building me up or tearing me down?” If it’s the latter, reframe the negative thought to a more empowering one.

The fastest way to change your life is to change your narrative. Small shifts in your mindset can trigger a massive shift in how you perceive yourself, others, and the world.

2. Surround Yourself With Positive People

Your success in life is determined, in large part, by your environment. If you want to be an optimistic person, you have to surround yourself with optimistic people. End of story.

As Jim Rohn once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

Take a moment and think about your close circle of friends. Are they inspiring and driven people who uplift and empower you? Or are they lazy, negative, and toxic?

If it’s the latter, I hate to break it to you, but it’s time to find new friends.

When you surround yourself with positive people, you’re more likely to adopt empowering beliefs and see life as happening for you instead of to you.[4]

Decide who you want to be and find people who embody those traits. When you raise your standards, your circle will change and so, too, will your life.

3. Make Your Mental Health and Well-Being a Priority

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a drastic increase in mental health issues. The isolation, fear, uncertainty, and economic turmoil that people are facing around the world is a breeding ground for psychological distress.[5]

Given the current state of our world, there has never been a more important time for us to make our mental health and well-being a priority.

The question remains, “How do you stay positive when everything sucks?”

It’s all a matter of perspective.

We know that the mind and body are connected. If you ignore one, the other one suffers equally as much. Research has found that taking care of ourselves physically and mentally can influence our happiness and train our brains over time to be more positive.[6]

Looking after your mind and body means creating a daily self-care ritual, consisting of eating healthy foods, exercising, meditating, doing yoga, staying connected with friends, journaling, reading, and practicing affirmations, to name a few.

Anything that helps you manage your stress and connect with the present moment is key. Even in the most challenging of times, it is always possible to find something to be grateful for. By choosing to focus on what is good in your life and what makes you happy, you will grow stronger in the face of adversity.

Now Is the Time to Train Your Brain to Be Optimistic

Your mindset is everything. Thinking positively is as important as your skills or talents. We cannot always control our outer world, which is why it’s imperative to cultivate a strong inner world.

How you respond to adversity will determine your success in life. Have faith, trust in yourself, and believe in what is possible. When you think positively, positive things will happen.
