I think it’s interesting that strong famous woman like Pink, Mariah Carey, Gloria Gaynor, Taylor Swift, Kesha, Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse, Katy Perry and Adele just to name a few, sing and talk about love, heart break and their struggles in their past relationships through music. They are not told to shut up, stay strong but keep silent or keep your “drama” to yourself. If anyone would like to tell any of these strong woman that then more power to you. ? Many woman use these songs as helping tools to move through their own feelings and healing. It’s not “drama” it’s our life!
I encourage woman to stand up to abuse no matter how they wish. Sing it! Verbalize it! Write it! Just get it out! I lived with mental and emotional abuse for years (and still deal with it) while walking around with a smile on my face and a bottle of wine at night just to be able to tolerate my situation. Now, nothing will silence me. Not other woman that are triggered about my past or present or real story, nor any man that’s for sure. If they see you as a mirror they may turn away. Let them go. Yes, even other woman. Let’s be pillars of support for one another and raise each other up. No matter how crazy we look, sad we are, pissed about our situation we have become let’s just hold space for one another and give each other a free pass sometimes. ??
Tell your story.
It helps other people come forward with theirs. ❤️
