They told me not to say NO. They told me it was rebellion. They told me I needed to give up my will. They told me to submit. They told me I was weaker than a man. They told me the man was “the head”…
What they didn’t tell me was that in the real world this could be trouble. Did they know? They didn’t tell me it would be an emotional/mental battle to find that voice- to know it was OK to use that voice. Did they know having no voice could equal being in a potentially dangerous situation and going into a freeze/flight mode?
Girls please learn your voice. Use your voice. Know your power. Stand your ground.
*”They” is used to reference the church control.
