I Write For Women Because I Want Them To Know They’re Important


I write for women.

I am sick and tired of all these people who try to point out and conclude that I write for you or about you. Let me get this straight. I don’t write about you, nor will I write for you. I don’t write for men who messed shit up and still have the balls to take credit and steal women’s thunder.

I don’t write for these arrogant douchebags who brag that if it weren’t for them hurting women, women wouldn’t be able to get out of their shell and start getting better. I am disgusted by guys who take pride the moment women finally let go of all the pain and start embracing their power. I am pissed off and this gets me to want to make myself crystal clear — I don’t write for you. These will never be about you.

I write for women.

I write to empower them — to remind them how capable they are of anything they put their mind and heart into. I write to reach as many women as possible who may be going through a pit they think they have no way out; to somehow be able to pass that hope that their time will come and that they’ll shine even brighter than the brightest star.

I write for all women who keep doubting themselves just because others would talk them down the moment they feel that these women are about to rise and slay the world – the moment these people start to feel as if they’re going be overpowered, giving them the very urge to destroy these beautiful and powerful women into pieces.

I write for all women trapped inside their own fears.

I want them to know that the only way they can get out of it is to confront it. I want them to know that they have their wings – they always have – and all they have to do is to spread those beautiful wings and fly their way to all the wonderful possibilities.

I write for all women who stopped believing in everything.

I write to remind them that their voices matter in this society; to make sure they know that they don’t exist just to sit silently in one corner – afraid that whatever they say might be used against them or might get them vulnerable to all these ridiculous judgements.

I write for all the girls who have dreams.

No matter how impossible or absurd these are for other people, I write to tell you there is no such thing as impossible. Not so long ago, I was that girl – enveloped with doubt I could ever get my dreams to happen. But, despite all the doubts, both from me and the people around, I managed to prove no one but myself wrong.

Everything is so damn possible, and you don’t need any approval from anyone to get there.

I write for women who continuously struggle to prove themselves to the world. I write to let them know it’s not necessary, because all they have to prove themselves to is their selves. I write to let them know they have the power to drop everything that makes them feel that they haven’t done anything right.

I write to empower all women. You deserve the spotlight. You are beautiful. You are capable. You are loved. You are powerful. Don’t let anyone steal your thunder. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
