If you think about what it means to be empowered as a woman, it’s likely that you’ll have an image of someone in mind when you consider all the different elements. That might be someone you know who you admire, or it could be someone in the public eye who always seems to be able to do whatever she wants and do it well. No matter who your role model is, you’ll only ever become truly empowered if you work on your own feelings on the matter; trying to copy someone else may not work for you, although it’s a good idea to give you a place to start or a goal to achieve. With that in mind, here are some of the ways you can feel more empowered as a woman.
Take Control In The Bedroom
$ex is powerful, and it can change everything for good or for bad in a relationship, and in life in general. So why not use that power to make yourself more empowered? Rather than always letting your partner dictate what positions you use or how you have $ex, you should be the one taking charge. Not only will taking control in the bedroom make you feel more empowered, but it will help you in terms of your enjoyment too – if you’re calling the shots, you’ll be more likely to do the things that turn you on.
Of course, consent is always crucial, so no matter what you do, it’s important you both agree. However, using a strap on (whether your partner is male or female) or choosing what fantasies to act out or even simply instigating $ex if you don’t normally do that could be what makes you feel completely empowered.
Stand Up For Yourself
When you are able to stand up for yourself, whether it’s in a domestic situation or a professional one (or anything else, come to that), you will certainly feel empowered. You’ll know that you can say what you mean and what you want whenever you need to, and that opens up a world of possibilities and huge opportunities.
Sitting back and letting things happen around you isn’t always a great thing to do. It can work, but only if what is happening is what you want. Even then, you won’t have any control and that’s not empowering at all. It’s better to voice an opinion, no matter what other people say, and tell your own truth. It will be hard if this is not something you usually do, but once you’ve tried it a few times, you’ll quickly understand how good it feels.
It’s an uncomfortable truth that women can be vulnerable. As much as we might not like to think about it, it’s crucial to remember it, as it could be lifesaving. This is why, if you want to empower yourself, taking self-defense classes and ensuring you can protect yourself if you are in a bad situation is important. Not only will you feel more empowered, but you will feel safer too.
It’s also a good idea to encourage other women to do the same. The more women who can defend themselves, the better – even if it is a sad indictment on society that it is needed.
