When we think of Women so many images & thoughts pop up in our mind
Our favorite Celebrity, maybe a significant other, beauty, curves, for some a person cooking for them, for others a person flaunting the most adorable smile & may be a few more immediate images.
How many thought of Independence?
For years and centuries women & independence are on opposite sides of the spectrum
it was almost not even a requirement to have this value or even dream of being Free and then times changed, crimes were on a uprise & it led to families raising their girls as boys.
Wearing pants, fighting one’s own battles, learning self defense and so on.
Then years passed and decades after inspite of being able to do and achieve almost everything on an equal platform the female population still felt restricted, yet suffocated, yet trapped
that’s when the need for Financial Independence arose.
This was received by all like with open arms, its raised confidence like no other
A woman began to have Value, value in her voice on important decisions, value as now she had a Price tag. This truly added wings to women all over the world & till date cannot be disputed
However, if we look around us, even women with 6 figure salaries aren’t FREE
Even women with a fat bank balance feels oppressed
Even a woman operating an Airbus can feel drawn to the floor by a colleague, a child, a loved one or just anyone
So then is Independence a new age Fairy Tale?
Is it the Unicorn that fades away as we grow?
Is Freedom just a word in HIstory?
No…. not necessarily,
It’s time for an upgrade
It’s time to evolve the understanding of these words in this time & age
It’s time to look within & assess what really matters
And that TIME IS NOW
The time is here to develop Emotional Independence or more so, Emotional Self- Dependence.
So what does that essentially mean? It simply says that the emotion we feel it’s a CHOICE we make for ourselves. It doesn’t mean being void of emotion or attachment, but means that the onus of being happy or sad, excited or bored is an option & not outsourced to someone else. Some of us delegate this responsibility to even a stranger, the weather, the slow Wifi, or even a traffic signal
We are evolving every day, every minute and the need & requirement to experience happiness, peace of mind is at the highest level more than ever before.
So take action today
Begin with these 3 steps
1 make a decision to be in-charge
2 every time your emotion changes ask’ is this feeling my choice?’
3 and then choose what you want to focus on
Emotional independence is what brings us closest to of feeling Free It’s the state where U ARE always in control, cause you could have a million bucks in hand & still feel restricted & restrained, or you could have just 1 penny & yet have no restrictions on your mood. & the emotion you choose. So today, let’s make the effort to BE emotionally self-dependent as that is the BETTER WAY .
Much love & light – Kim xoxo
