Once upon a time, I wanted to become a man because I was raised to believe that a man is more capable of a lot of things than a woman. As a woman, I was taught that I am weak, vulnerable, and fragile.
I strived to be as less girly as I could and I tried my best to be self-sufficient. I kept everyone at an arm's length and made sure no one sees how vulnerable I am. I have achieved a lot due to this mentality, but at the end of the day there's still something missing in my heart.
Looking back, this is also the time I rejected Rose Quartz because it holds yin energy and symbolizes gentleness and unconditional love. I didn't see the power of unconditional love, forgiveness, and vulnerability until I started my spiritual journey with crystals and Reiki.
I accepted the part of me that I have been denying. I learned that femininity and masculinity are not 2 separate concepts but a spectrum within us. We don’t need to choose but instead we can embrace it as a whole. I didn't know that I'd gain more by embracing this side of me.
I learned how to accept and give love to people without judgment and expectation. Without this, I don't think I'd be here sharing my light with you. So I encourage you to embrace that femininity within you. It's not a weakness but the greatest strength you can ever find.
