This text is from the movie The Help. One of the best movies I have seen in a long time.
The first time Aibileen says this to little Mae Mobley, I could barely swallow around the lump in my throat. The way that sweet little girl repeated the words along with her - it cut me straight to the core.
Like many of you, I'm no stranger to the incredibly high standards that women put on themselves. I'm also no stranger to comparisons, negatives thoughts, and feelings of low self-esteem at times. Especially in navigating the world of running a business by myself, and trying to thrive in a creative and competitive marketplace.
This motto is not only fitting for sweet Mae Mobley, I can learn a lot from it myself.
