Never Apologise Girl!

One of my Big Mamas sent this in an E-mail.

1. Never apologise for pursuing what makes you happy. Even if you need to quit your job, transfer schools, or move across country, always do what you really want.

2. Never apologise for using proper English. Keeping it real doesn’t mean speaking Ebonics.

3. Never apologise for giving your best in a relationship that just didn’t work out.

4. Never apologise for being successful. Only haters want to keep you at their level.

5. Never apologise for crying. Wear waterproof mascara and express yourself.  

6. Never apologise for ten pounds you need to lose. People who truly care about you will accept you as you are.

7. Never apologise for being frugal. Just because you save your money instead of blowing it on the latest fashion emergency doesn’t mean you’re cheap.

8. Don’t apologise for being a single mom. Babies are a blessing.

9. Never apologise for treating yourself to something special. Sometimes you have to show yourself some appreciation.

10. Never apologise for leaving an abusive relationship. Your safety should always be a priority.

11. Never apologise for keeping the ring even if wedding bells won’t chime.

12. Never apologise for setting high standards in a relationship. You know what you can tolerate and what simply gets on your nerves.

13. Never apologise for saying NO.

4. Never apologise for asking for what you want in bed. If you don’t, then who will?

15. Never apologise for wearing a weave. You bought it so it’s yours.

16. Never apologise to your new friends about old friends. There’s a reason she’s been your girl from day one.

17. Never apologise for ordering dessert. Or more than one dessert.

8. Never apologise for dating outside your race. Just because you found Mr. Right across the colour line doesn’t mean you don’t love your brothas.

19. Never apologise for asking him to wear a condom. If he likes you he’ll wrap it up without making you feel guilty.

20. Never apologise for not knowing how to cook. Even if you can’t burn like Grandma you know how to order good take out.

21. Never apologise for your taste in clothes. It’s your style.

22. Never apologise for changing your mind.

23. Never apologise for exercising your right to choose. It’s your body and your right.

24. Never apologise for making more money than your man, you work hard and you deserve to get paid.

25. Never apologise for being you!

“KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND KEEP MOVING FORWARD” ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT GOD LOVES YOU AND HAS ALWAYS GOT YOUR BACK.
