Got Bitches?

I know that sounds like a very personal question to ask you….but I assure you, MY definition of ‘bitch’ is not the typical one.

Before we go any further, what exactly is a ‘bitch’?

def

Where do YOU have bitches showing up in your life?

  • The bitches about your body
  • The bitches about your relationships
  • The bitches that guide your internal thoughts….that tell you whether or not to go after what you truly want

Can you imagine what your life would be like if you simply cut out all the ‘bitches’ in your life…and no longer made this treatment acceptable for yourself?

What would happen if you no longer let that BULLY within you BOSS you around, BEAT you up, or make you feel like the gum on the bottom of your shoe?

What would happen if you simply decided to… ‘Ditch the Bitch’?

Think about the next time you set out to lose a few pounds….or go after that job that you REALLY want…or ‘upgrade’ your life in any manner.

Just imagine what your life would be like if those ‘bitches’ WEREN’T around to tell you:

  •  “You might as well just give up now, you don’t have a shot at succeeding”
  •  “That job is going to go to that prettier, skinnier, gal– you should just back out now”
  •  “He’ll never love you with THOSE thighs, THAT hair, or THAT squeaky-sounding voice of yours” [/list]

Imagine if you woke up one day and suddenly….all the bitches in your life were….GONE.

  •   No more ‘shoulda’s, woulda’s coulda’s’
  •   No more ‘you’re not X enough’
  •   No more name-calling and doubt-filled remarks[/list]

I know for me personally, it was simply a matter of being aware that all the bitches in my life were….well…everywhere.

I used to look in the mirror, and one of my inner-bitches would scour that reflection for anything and everything she could get her hands on to pick apart or look at with dismay.

I used to walk into a room and that inner-bitch of mine would tell me that it was gonna be a mess– hell on earth– that I was going to appear awkward or not fit in.

I used to think about my dreams and what I really WANT for my life….and of course…without a second thought, my inner-bitch would tell me it would never happen anyways– to just give up now and ‘save yourself the embarrassment’.

But WOA! The day I realized that these bitches were around….and that went EVERYWHERE with me….WOW. That was a day that changed my life!

You see my whole life I’ve prided myself in the fact that I don’t hang around people that treat me like crap. Even as a little kid when a girl in 3rd grade made fun of me because my shirt was from Ross Dress for Less instead of The Limited Too (yes, I absolutely remember this like it was yesterday), I remember giving her the ol’ ‘screw you!” in my mind, and not looking back.

And it continued on throughout my childhood and adulthood. If I had a friend, love interest, co-worker, or any acquaintance not treat me with love and kindness– the same love and kindness I show my friends and loved ones– it was EASY for me to remove myself from the situation.

So why did I continue to let the ‘bitches’ in my life continue to take over– continue to tear me down and abuse me– continue to let me feel like I was less than?

That my friend is another story all on it’s own….and best kept for another day.

But before I end, I want to nudge you to ask yourself:

Where do YOU have bitches showing up in YOUR life? And what would your life look like if you simply decided to….Ditch the Bitch?
