Do you laugh loudly, as in, a guffaw?
Do you wear what you want to, not caring about what “him”,”her” or “they” will say?
Do you express your thoughts and put forward your opinions freely in a gathering, without fearing judgement?
Do you speak your mind, and not bother about an ‘image’ to uphold?
Do you give it back equally during arguments and fights with the man in your life, without quavering?
Do you have guts enough and the self respect to cut off or at least stay away from toxic people, however close in ‘relation’ they may be?
Are you loud and brash at times, caring two hoots about “demeanour” ?
Are you comfortable putting your feet up at times and letting the man in your life take care of the domestic stuff?
Are you unapologetic about spending on yourself?
Are you willing to ruffle a few feathers and to stand alone, by not conforming to the social norms?
Are you crazy enough to come across as the fool at times, just to make your kids laugh?
Are you called a ” tigress” by your man, because you don’t allow him to be unfair or tardy to you ever?
Then BRAVO my girl, you are NOT a LADY!
