For the longest time, women have been made to feel guilty or shameful in everyday situations. From being too assertive to being too nice, society has a way of making them feel like everything they do is wrong. It’s high time for women to start doing with those undeserved feelings of guilt and take back their right to be exactly whom they want. Below are the things women should absolutely stop feeling ashamed about;
1. Having Male Friends
There is nothing wrong with having friends of the opposite sex. People of the opposite gender can be friends without s*x or any string attached.
2. Being Assertive
Women often feel as if they can’t be assertive in the workplace or even at home, at the risk of being called rude or aggressive. Everyone deserves to have their voice heard and sometimes that means saying what you think and not apologizing for it.
3. Watching Porn
You owe no one an apology for watching what makes you happy, there is nothing shameful about embracing the entertainment that bring joy.
4. Saying No
You don’t owe anyone anything. If someone is trying to use your guilt of saying no to make you do something that isn’t a positive don’t give in.
It isn’t selfish to say no, in fact, it can often be a form of self-care.
5. Treating Yourself
There is this notion that women can’t treat herself unless a man is behind it. There is nothing wrong with treating yourself, regardless of the reason.
