I used to think I was alone. I used to think I was “too much” for people to handle. I used to think something was wrong with me. I used to think I was crazy for wanting what I wanted.
I felt boxed in by rules that felt like landmines. I felt exhausted playing games that weren’t my own. My head felt sore from overthinking things and beating it against a wall of resistance to change.
I was told to be careful with myself because I was dangerous.
It was all quite exhausting. But then you probably know this. You’re living it, too.
What I know now is this:
- I’m not crazy, I’m just different—which naturally threatens the status quo. This isn’t something to be “tolerated” or “managed”, it’s a power to be leveraged.
- What makes me different is the very medicine I am here to bring—it’s why “refreshing” and “inspiring” are two of the most frequently used words to describe me.
- You bet I’m dangerous because I’m a powerful woman. But I am also in service of something much greater than myself, and I trust it now. I do not harm. I serve.
This is the power of SheChanges—to inspire and fuel change in our world.
I know am not alone—there is a larger revolution happening. And if you’re here now, you’re a part of it.
