When I was a little girl I got the feeling that boys were a more important commodity than girls.
Couples seemed to want a boy baby. And a girl was fine as long as she came second.
We seemed to be insufficient all by ourselves. Not as important. And not as smart or worthy.
Why has the world done this to us?
In some countries boys are considered premium and girls are clearance sale or bargain bin material.
So women have to empower themselves. They have to pull themselves up and push themselves forward and take what they need and want.

You don’t have to be the stars surrounding his moon. If he wants you to be, then he doesn’t deserve you.
Remember that it’s never too late to take your power back.
Your star will shine brighter the farther you go.
The more you believe in yourself.
And the better you take care for you.
