According to a 2016 study, "single women are less influenced by society's gender roles and are drawn to the idea of being their own boss."

Let me just be clear and say that being a #GIRLBOSS doesn't mean you have to become an entrepreneur. It just means that you are going after your dreams and not letting anything or anyone stand in your way.

You are a force to be reckoned with. You exude the love you have for yourself out into the world, you aren't begging for attention because you already know how amazing you truly are. You don't need another half because you aren't a half.

Until that moment comes, you're going to keep on being the best version of yourself.

I hope these points help you remember just how great it is to be your own girl boss.

1. You don’t have to wait for someone to buy you things.


If you want cheese fries, you go buy them.

2. You can afford to take yourself out on nice dates.

Okay, eating cheese fries in your bed is great and all, but sometimes you deserve a little self-care date. Ain't nothing wrong with that! I mean, think of it this way: you don't even have to share your food.


3. You have learned the most important relationship you’ll ever have is with yourself.

You da shit. Remember that.


4. You have more room in your agenda to make plans that involve going after your dreams.

Now that doesn't mean your agenda isn't going to be jam-packed, but at least it's filled with activities that bring you joy.

5. Your LinkedIn connections will probably always outnumber your future S.O.’s Instagram followers.

It's no big deal, really. I could network and hand out business cards in my sleep.

6. You know when to be professional and when to call someone out on their B.S.

Sorry, Kevin.

7. You can wear your highest pair of heels and never have to worry about being “taller than him.”

If you like it, wear it.


8. You can travel for as long as you’d like without worrying about being away from a certain someone.

You can "Eat Pray Love" for as long as you'd like.


9. You have more time to spend planning out your dream wedding on Pinterest.

It's got to be just as spectacular as you.


10. You don’t need anyone’s approval.

You can do whatever you want, whenever you want.

11. You value the importance of getting by “with a little help from your friends.”

You've seen people get into relationships and completely neglect their friends so they can spend time with their S.O. There's a good chance that your friends have given you countless motivational pep talks when you've been hit with "imposter syndrome," and you cannot thank them enough for it.


12. You can make as many mistakes as your heart desires without having someone judge you.

Remember: doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. You know it's okay to fail because it always turns out to be a learning experience.

13. If you’re reading this, then chances are you haven’t settled.

This one's really important: keep not settling.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

35946

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
