People should see that the most important things in life transcends genre stereotypes. Minerva Mirabal, my favorite historic heroine, is an example of this.
Congratulations to all the women who do not let society roles define who they are or who they are going to be.
Blessings to all of you in your life goals.
- BE FAIR
Be fair to yourself and to the other person.
- NO APOLOGIES
Not overly apologetic behavior. No apologizing for being alive, for making a request at all. No apologies for having an opinion, for disagreeing.
- STICK TO VALUES
Stick to your own values. Don’t sell your values or integrity, especially for reasons that aren’t very important. Be clear on what you believe is the moral or valued way of thinking and acting, and “stick” to your guts.
- BE TRUTHFUL
Don’t lie, act helpless when you are not, or exaggerate. Don’t make up excuses.
