Dear Sisters of the World

Dear Sisters of the WorldOriginally posted on The inscrutable paths of the spirit:

Today on this day, on our day, you are all in my heart. I pray for your strength, your empowerment, for your voice to be heard and for you actions to matter. I pray for all of you, but I especially pray for those of you who are young and who are struggling to find your way in life.

I know there are so many of you out there who are afraid to say what you want in life, to acknowledge your right to happiness and to stand up for your beliefs, your wishes and your dreams.
I know many of you are still struggling for freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of choice and freedom of will.
I know many of you are afraid, afraid to walk outside your house alone, afraid to speak up for yourself, afraid to lose what little you have of love, afraid to stand alone against a male-dominated culture, afraid to live your life the way you want to.
I know many of you are forced to live a life you don’t want to live.
I know many of you have been deprived of your rights, your right to love, your right to be loved, your right to feel valuable, your right to define yourself and your right to love yourself.

I want you to know that you are not alone.
I want you to know that you are right. You are right to want to be loved and to love, you are right to want to be happy, you are right to have dreams and wishes for yourself. Don’t let them go, don’t let yourself go.
There is a whole sisterhood ready to stand by you, to help you.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help, don’t be afraid to ask for comfort, and don’t be afraid to ask for love.

If I could give you one thing dear sister, it would be this: Inner strength.
