If you apologise in my vicinity, whether you identify as a woman or otherwise, I will not refrain from reminding you there is no need to do so.
We are programmed to sacrifice our honour as Sovereign Be-ings in the everyday socio-cultural sphere to cushion the responses/perceptions of others. You have every right to speak your truth without the need to book-end it with an apology. Of course there is a margin of respect to extend to one another, when exchanging words/ideas/discourse, in that what you say should not aim to create discord. Though at the same time, what are you compromising in that exchange that places you in submission to the rest? So as to prevent offence? To entreat the privilege of another?
Revelation and freedom of Be-ing for the generations incoming begin with the words and actions of those interacting right 'now'.
What old patterns of moving through conversation can you shift/alter in order to allow your voice to articulate freely and without undermining your worth? This includes the internal dialogue with the Self.
The more you apologise for that humble beauty that expresses itself through your nature - wild or not - the more we subscribe to old ideologies and programs that no longer have a place in our changing world. Be unapologetic in your authenticity and if another reacts in negation of this, that is on them; as a reflection of their own inner space. By extension, whatever perception and/or opposing opinions that may arise from an exchange with another (or the Self), let them be. To act on them, especially in retaliation, creates an energetic disharmony. Especially when another speaks freely of their own opinions or whatever it may be, polarising with yours. Nothing is achieved in perpetuating that play of opposites. Acknowledge that is theirs and move forward with yours. There is so much to learn of ourselves (and our wounds, needs, longings) in that discord, in addition to the responses we choose that therefore follow.
When you begin to honour your outward expression, others will too.
