And I’ll think about this every time I greet my nieces and automatically move to comment on their appearance- their hair, their outfits, their accessories. Do we do this to boys?

And I’ll think about this every time I scroll through Instagram, comparing myself to strangers. Society loves a good cat fight- pitting women against women. What scraps are we fighting over?

We are more than our bodies- more than breasts and skin and hair and pretty faces. We are more than smiles and kindness and sweetness.

It’s exhausting that, as a woman, I have to relearn this about myself.
