International women´s day

On the international women’s day this is what I wish for myself and other women:

I wish to give up the need to constantly do things, provide for others, organize, deliver, be available, cook, work…

I wish to stop having to fix people, particularly my partner and my children

I wish to silence the inner voice that is constantly telling me that “I am not thin enough, young enough, good-looking enough, sexy enough… and that I need to work hard to be different”

I wish to give up the fight to prove that I am smarter than the men…and than many other women

I wish to stop having to comment on everything and be able to “just” listen 

…and I wish to give space to the awesome person that I am when I am not doing any of the things listed above :-)
