You should seek approval from yourself.—Ichiro Suzuki—
Your identity is determined by you, and only you; don’t let anyone try and take that autonomy away from you.
No matter if you are you a vegan, vegetarian, Muslim, Jewish, Christian, a single woman, a single parent, a wife, a housewife or a working woman, you have a choice.
You need to know that whatever identity you take on, you, and no one else is a creator of your life experience.
I am an artist. That’s my identity. I am also a wife and since recently, a new mother to a baby boy. All these identities are part of who I am that makes me the woman I am today.
There is no one way to be a feminist. It is about an equal choice that women can make for themselves, what is she going to be or do. The woman of today does not need to be just one thing. She can be whatever she wants to be, she can have it all. We all go through different chapters in our lives and depending on where we are at the moment, we can put an emphasis on different aspects of ourselves.
When you claim yourself people will come from all sides to tell you what you can and can not do.Nevena Bridgen
When that happens you need to know that you came to this planet with a purpose. Maybe your purpose is not fully shaped, but you have the right to explore it. You have the right to be your authentic self. You are beneath no one. Your life is relevant no matter who you are, and what you choose to do. That is your birthright.
Every person has its own story to tell
There are no two same experiences. Every person has its own story to tell. We are all part of the human experience and we are all equal in the eyes of God or the universe whatever you believe in. It is again your choice to believe in it or not.
Who is it to play God to give you approval on what you can do in life and what path to follow? Only you can give yourself permission to walk your path no matter how popular or unpopular it is.

Wives, women of Britain and a wider world. You are relevant. Don’t let others tell you what you can’t do.
