If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
If you’re too much—bold, loud, opinionated, emotional—they won’t like you.
Wait for permission.
Be a good girl.
Who do you think you are?
Any of these sound familiar? This is what society tells you, if you’re a little girl with a lot to say. And then one day, you’re a big girl who says these things to herself. Except. Except, except, except . . . the world needs to hear your story, however big or small or loud or quiet or strange or sad or funny or outrageous it might be, and only you can tell it. How then, to find the courage? Well, it starts with nourishing yourself. Which is why we at Sweatpants & Coffee are utterly in love with author and writing coach Jen Violi’s new Write-amins. If you take them, you’ll grow nice and strong.
