Remember: They can opt out.

Have you ever encountered the idea of the “too much” woman? Have you ever been called a “too much” woman?

Yeah, me too.

And most of the time, I embrace it. I’m not here to be who you want me to be. I’m all about “You do you.” But sometimes, when just one too many people, IRL or in the comments or whatever, tells you to tone it down a little, it can get to you.

So many times in this world, we are told to hold back on who we are – especially as women, especially in business. We’re expected to show up and interact with the world in certain ways, and often that means softening. Sometimes, it feels like we’re not allowed to be ourselves in any way.

We’re bombarded with don’ts and shoulds, over and over again.

But really, it’s all BS. And I’m here to remind you that it’s not all on us to shape and mold ourselves into what other people want us to be. The reality is –

They can opt out.

I took a few minutes to explore this concept, especially as it relates to business and marketing and content creation, but also, how it can apply everywhere in our lives. Take a look!

So, you know, what if there was another way? What if you weren’t always the one to temper or soften your edges to make it work for someone else?

Remember: We can be who we are, do what we do. And they can opt out.
