How Do You Stay True?

How Do You Stay True?

BY The Conversation Team

As a woman, can you be yourself  and do things your way without people thinking you’re “difficult”? 

Chelsea Handler couldn’t have said it better, “I don’t care if someone wants to say I’m a bitch…People who don’t know me are like ‘oh she’s so tough she’s a bitch,’ good then think I’m a bitch, that’s not really my problem what you think of me.”

Despite how important it is to follow your instincts and stay true to yourself, it isn’t always easy.

Have you ever followed your instincts even when you knew it would cause tension?

    Can’t discuss the specifics but it cost me my job. I don’t regret it though, and I would do it again.

    I’m in my 20s and have landed a dream role in the media. So far, I’m finding being political in the workplace hard. It seems to me that you can be yourself, but you just have to package yourself in a way that doesn’t ruffle too many feathers (making people want to actively compete with you through jealousy, or cut you down if you come across as arrogant) – because that can close doors later on. But I’m also worried that if I don’t speak my mind aggressively, I’ll go unnoticed and be underestimated. I’m still figuring things out I guess. Thanks for this show guys, it’s amazing and so inspiring and comforting.
