How Our Favorite TV Heroines Taught Us To Be Strong, Independent Women

Sometimes things don’t go the way you want them to. You got fired, bombed a test, or had a major fight with your boyfriend, and it’s all you can do to curl up with Netflix for the night. Thankfully, there’s a tribe of smart, strong, and fiercely independent ladies who have your back. While they battle their own heartbreak and turmoil, they never lose sight of who they are and all they’re capable of—and neither should you. Here’s what they taught us:

Be the best version of yourself

Grow your talent, whatever it may be

And never stop believing in yourself

Don’t settle for less than what you deserve

But recognize that you have your own flaws

Don’t wait around for someone who doesn’t see you

Just know that it’s okay to fall in love

And it’s more than okay to be heartbroken

Sometimes we all need a confidence boost

Because everybody has insecurities

And we all feel a little lost sometimes

But love yourself

Because the only acceptance you need is your own

And in the meantime, we love you! Have a great day ladies.
