5 Things I've Learnt

"She remembered who she was
and the game changed."
- Lalah Deliah

We're only 39 days into 2018 and I have already learnt more about myself than I have in the last 5 years. I was waiting until my 21st birthday in May to write a '21 Things I've Learnt in 21 Years' post, which I will still write, but I just want to share the self-love I have in me right now.

1. Being a feminist is not about hating men. It's believing in equality. It's believing in other women. And it's believing in yourself. I'm a feminist. I think everyone should be a feminist. 

"I believe that the rights of women
and girls is the unfinished
business of the 21st century."
- Hillary Clinton

2. My depression and anxiety does not make me weak. It's something that I fight every damn day. I fight the urge to end my life. That makes me strong.

"The strongest people are not those
who show strength in front of us,
but those who win battles we 
know nothing about."

3. I'm attracted to men. I'm attracted to women. I will fall in love with a person's soul. And souls know no gender

"I don't belong to anyone but myself.
I have to make my own decisions. Happiness
is defined by me. My sexuality is defined by me.
I can make it what I want to make it because
I'm the one who makes that choice."
- Keke Palmer

4. As cliche as it sounds - you do only get one life. I refuse to settle for anything less than what I love, desire and deserve from this life. 

"Surround yourself with people that
challenge how you think. Not people that
nod their head and act like they agree."
- NF

5. There is no room in my life for people who only plan on being in it temporarily. I don't want drama. I don't want negativity. And I don't want toxic people. I will not be held back by people who don't deserve my time.

Go after what you want.

Be selfish.

Love who you want.

Be You.
