Being called “Ambitious” felt like a slap in the face. I remember it vividly, the person who said it to me, said it with contempt. An accusation.
I later made a list of those kinds of words. You know the ones, they hold a lot of energy within them. Then I posted the list on my wall, so I’d see them everyday. My intention was to normalize them, take the charge off, so they wouldn’t be so shocking. And even more, I wanted to relate and resonate with them.
This video is similar though a bit different. It illustrates the same behavior being labeled differently for men and women. Write what you think in the comment section below?
