It’s amazing how easy it is to feel inadequate as a woman, or maybe even as a human being, I can’t speak for the male experience. But one day, I could be feeling entirely on top of everything: hair done, nails done, skin clear, waist cinched. And all it takes is a hormonal break-out the next day coupled with a project that doesn’t go my way, and it feels like everything is falling apart.
That is one thing I never quite prepared for about the adult experience- how quickly feelings change and how short-lived happiness can be. What I’ve also learned though is how important it is to know this and take control in these moments.
It is in these moments that we need to do whatever it takes to get ourselves back up. Sometimes, that means changing a hairstyle, sometimes it means ordering an over-priced meal, and other times it means buying a sequin dress that makes you feel like the only girl in the room. Or in this case, on the street.
You know what they say- you gotta do what you gotta do.
