Mother has always been an inspiration for their children. Mother usually teaches their daughters few aspects of life which help them in future. Though in a fast paced world, where girls are no less than boys, girls are still bound to few things because of stereotypes in the society. Need of the hour is to make the girls understand that breaking the stereotypes is the game and mothers can play a major role in doing the same. Blogger, Toni Hammer wrote an inspiring open letter to her daughter on Facebook where she enlists all those societal conventions that her daughter needs to adhere to. The letter has won millions of heart and it is trending around the world. With more than 7000 shares, the letter has inspired millions of mothers and daughters.
Don’t apologize when someone else bumps into you.
Don’t say “sorry to be such a pain.” You’re not a pain. You’re a person with thoughts and feelings who deserves respect.
Don’t make up reasons as to why you can’t go out with a guy you don’t wanna go out with. You don’t owe anyone an explanation. A simple “no thanks” should be acceptable.
Don’t overthink what you eat in front of people. If you’re hungry, eat, and eat what you want. If you want pizza, don’t get a salad just because other people are around. Order the damn pizza.
Don’t keep your hair long to make someone else happy.
Don’t wear a dress if you don’t want to.
Don’t stay home because you don’t have anyone to go out with. Take yourself out. Have experiences by yourself and for yourself.
Don’t hold back your tears. Crying means you’re feeling something that needs to get out. It’s not a weakness. It’s being human.
Don’t smile because someone told you to.
Don’t be afraid to laugh at your own jokes.
Don’t say “yes” to be polite. Say “no” because it’s your life.
Don’t hide your opinions. Speak up and speak loudly. You should be heard.
Don’t apologize for being who you are. Be brave and bold and beautiful. Be unapologetically you.”
