As a woman we have two options. Either be bold or stay shy. If you stay shy, people would love you as this is what they expect you to. But if you are bold, there will be two things. One, people would shy away from you. Two, people will be scared of you. If people shy away from from you, good for you. If they are scared of you, they will try to hurt you. And if they try to hurt you, you better be shy.
But whatever the world says be what you really like to bold or shy- none of them would make your life simpler. So don't be either of them, just be a real woman. The world is yet to meet one.
