As women, we’re conditioned to suppress ourselves in order to keep the peace. For many of us, this means we either compromise our own values to avoid standing out OR we sever ties with people completely. But what if there’s a way to honor the community you’re a part of AND walk in your own truth? What if we CAN create mutually beneficial relationships where we show up as ourselves?
