Just because you’re a woman does not make it ok for others to trespass upon you.
It is not your job to put up with others issues and swallow your voice until it chokes you out of fear, feelings of inadequacy or for threat of reprisal. It is not your purpose to give up your time, energy or resources for everyone and everything out of a sense of obligation or accommodation.
Your purpose in this life is not to be a puppet for everyone elses whims.
For far too long women have been made to be afraid to show our faces in the world.
We have been threatened when we tried to bring our truth into being. Our rights have been violated. We have been made to feel unsafe as we walk in this world. We have been propositioned in vulgar, unacceptable ways. We have been made to feel less than.
This is not our truth but oppression woven from the patriarchal loom of the past, a past that constricts the feminine and binds her to a will not her own. This is not our future. Our story will be written by our own hands and it will be one of freedom, not bondage. The path we walk is one of truth, not silence.
No one has the right to trespass upon your shores uninvited.
No one has the right to threaten you or turn your gifts into arrows. No one has the right to make you feel unsafe in your own skin. No one has the right to violate your sacred self. No one has the right to treat you like you are a piece of meat. No one has the right to warp your medicine. No one has the right to silence your voice.
This is not acceptable but what we have been taught to expect. No more. Rise up warrior woman, no one has the right to trespass upon you.
It is our right to stand up for ourselves. To say NO you will not trespass upon me.
I reclaim my voice, my time and my sacred space. I take back my energy and my energetic resources. I will not silence my truth or hide in fear.
For I am a warrior woman. And you are not allowed to tread upon me.
