Definition of a Girl Gangster……….
What does being a #girlgangster mean to you? To us it is a woman who overcomes her demons on the daily, knows what she wants out of life and supports all other females in their endeavours!
We as women all have insecurities and demons. We are often guilty of comparing ourselves with other females. The sooner we let go of that nonsense, see what makes each one of use unique and see these things as something we can celebrate, the easier our ride will be!
Society has come to expect a lot from women these days! Scrolling through Facebook we found a post that totally resonated with us and I immediately thought this girl was the epitome of what we believe is a Girl Gangster! So we had to share this with you…
Written by Gemma-Leigh Reed:
“Bit of a long post but here goes I’m a mum, a wife, a business owner, a friend, a sibling, a daughter a granddaughter, cousin, independent woman, a catholic, an individual, creative, caring and completely over analytical person, alongside these I am expected by society, family and others expectations to be; a chef, a cleaner, a full time carer, responsible, a shoulder to cry on, a support system, an entertainer, a lady, a sexual object, funny but not TOO funny because that means you take nothing “seriously”, skinny, pretty but only if your a size 8 toned perma tanned 5ft7+ babe with just the right amount of curve and perfect “hair, teeth, lips, lashes….” I’m also expected to be intelligent and have purpose and opinion, however not too much because that makes you “over-opinionated”. I’m expected to be amazing at my job, be there for clients while also being invisible but provide security and trust. Alongside all of these expectations and standard requirements which are to be accepted and taken with a pinch of salt I am to conform to being the perfect “mother” be proud of my parenting but no too proud because that opens the window for “why does she think she’s so good and for others to pick apart my methods”, I’m expected to have the perfect relationship because by social media standards if your relationship isn’t all perfect photos of “bae” and you even disagree about anything then people can pick apart your obviously “ruined” relationship and speculate cheating…. (sense the sarcasm). My daily duties include sorting the children from 5-6am when they choose to get up (reminding them of their manners and to contain themselves until at least 7.30am so as not to upset the neighbours noise expectations) to get everyone ready, work, house work, bills and paperwork, more work (because I have my own expectations of maintaining a beautiful house, and setting up saving accounts for both children etc) I then collect children from school and nursery sort dinners and do other motherly chores pre planning dinners and lunches for tomorrow, I work out and then clean the house around them because a messy house is a happy house unless you look at a magazine that suggests everything should be pristine and white and having mucky fingerprints anywhere is to frown upon! Once dinner baths and some quality time is squeezed in for family and stories etc it’s then time for baths and bed…. which gives me the rest of the evening to…. get some more work done in peace to prep for the day ahead finally showering because being a tramp is not socially acceptable, before falling into bed around midnight ready for the night activity from my youngest. I LOVE my kids, my job, my husband, friends family and I love my life… I chose it, but sometimes you can’t help but feel taken for granted or that the pressures of expectations force you to feel like your not quite there yet… like life and work is kicking your ass… so my message for the day is be grateful for the people around you for all the little things they do, for their quirks and the time they take to do literally anything for you big or small… and be thankful that even if your having a shitty day your getting through it because that’s just what we do we’re creatures of habit and whether it’s a good bad or a bloody ball-bag of a day we finish them each one and we move on to the next! ❤”
One of the Definition of a Girl Gangster is Gemma! We salute Gemma and the many other females out there challenging societies perception of what we should be or look like or act like!! I have been very lucky in my life to roll with a group of 100% Girl Gangsters. They chase their dreams and we all encourage each other to excel. God forbid any “Fuck Boy” tries to mess with them.
Lets just all remember everyone struggles and the strongest of women are the hands guiding the others up! As Girl Gangster’s we are tough, because the World around us is tough, yet we also know that the World needs much more compassion and kindness. We spread kindness where we can, but do not ever mistake a Girl Gangster for a fool, as we will cut you out like what we do to the pages of a magazine when making our dream boards! Definition of a Girl Gangster……….Strong, independent, kind, compassionate, caring, courageous and supportive.
