Education is my right, and not my privilege. Hygiene and sanitation is a necessity, not an advantage.
Physical beauty is my grace, and not my identity. My name (maiden or married - whatever that means) is just a part of me, not the entire me. I am whole, irrespective of my name.
Procreation is my aspect, and not my destination. Motherhood is my instinct; not a matter soliciting your judement.
My attire is my choice; not subject to your approval. Dressing up in good clothes, jewellery and finery is a matter of my comfort and not someone's status.
I am lucky to have everyone, and everyone is equally lucky to have me. You are not great to give respect, I deserve it.
Success is not my good fortune, it is my hard work. I carry my own dignity, not dependent on your perception.
I am a part of my family's honor, not the sole bearer of it. Voicing my opinion doesn't mean I am being disrespectful. Eating before or after others is a matter of convenience, not a matter of compulsion.
I bend, so that I don't break. My family is my priority, and so am I.
I want the best for my child. I may or may not know the price of things, but I know their value.
I am proud to be a mother, wife, daughter, daughter-in-law. But these labels don't define my individuality.
I am not a number. My weight, height, body stats can never define me. I am not just a body. I am not just a soul. Watch out for me, I am so much more.
I am growing with you, not because of you, maybe inspite of you.
You can't define my limits, neither can I. No one can stop me when I am destined to fly.
