What a conundrum self-love can be at times. We are told to love ourselves and to have confidence in who we are. If we are being negative we are told to cut it out and stop the self-loathing. But when we actually do love ourselves and present this self-assurance to the world, we are then called “cocky, conceited, narcissistic or self-absorbed”. So the message we get is to “love yourself, but make sure you only do it in private. Love yourself a little bit but not too much or you’ll put people off. Love yourself, but it’s also conceited and wrong to love yourself.” No wonder many of us have trouble even liking ourselves when we keep getting mixed messages like this.

Whenever you’re feeling down, just remember that Mulan was a real person.

Hua Mulan went to war at 15 years old and eventually led the army for almost a decade, leading countless attacks and winning victories for China. Decorated with honors, she returned home to her happy, living parents. When her army friends visited her, they found out that she was a woman and accepted it. 

Next excuse for limiting women’s rights, please.
