Be Greedy

I used to put my needs last. Everyone else’s needs would go before mine, including the creepy guy on the bus who asked for my number and who’s now texting me everyday but I feel guilty about wanting to block him. Blocking him would be greedy.

I’m much better now but I still struggle sometimes. When a gift comes in the wrong size, to ask for the right size feels greedy. Consciously I know it’s no big deal. Unconsciously I think I’m a greedy selfish ungrateful bitch.

So I need to embrace being greedy.

And if you were socialized as a woman, you probably need to be greedy too.

Because of this fear of being greedy, folks socialized as women end up having less money and less power and  less influence and therefore less leverage as the planet and society goes to shit.


93% of countries are led by men.

87% of billionaires are men.

And it’s not working out so well for human rights and the planet.

The world NEEDS YOU TO BE GREEDY so you can have more power and influence over the shit you care about.

So block first, block fast, block often. Protect your energy like a ninja.
