    I think you are so right. I think that ambition and drive were two characteristics that did not want to be seen in a woman. I think that some people still feel that way, especially with people who have conservative backgrounds, but things have been changing. I don’t feel like everyone feels this way anymore. I also think that women are not allowing people to stop them from having ambition, which is even more amazing. Great post laura xxx

      Thank you Melina! Yeah I think that there will always be people who believe that a woman should have kids and be a housewife but fortunately that view is starting to change.
      I think that there is a long way to go before women just accept each other’s choices, but I like that we are now starting to stand up for our ambitions. xxx

    I think ambition is a word that people should be allowed to use freely, both men and women. Whatever it is they want to be ambitious in, is their choice. If a women’s ambition is to stay at home and look after her kids full time, she shouldn’t be judged for it neither should she be judged if she aims to become the CEO of a company and not have a family.

      I completely agree with you! I don’t get why some women cannot just accept that everyone is entitled to their own choices. You can be ambitious in anything, but I do wish that society would take away the stigma that women should not be too ambitious when it comes to their careers. x

    Great words. Everything has got two sides. One good and one dark. It’s up to you how you look at the things. I don’t find it dirty. Really. Anyone can use it anytime. Even animals have this feeling. Then, why can’t humans have?
    Keep writing. Live well. 🙂

      Thank you! I agree, there is nothing wrong with ambition and I think the stereotypes that it can have around women should be erased. 🙂

        Yes. Trust me, there are a lot of things which should be erased and changed. It is one of them. But people talk. They don’t do. We are on it. We will definitely bring changes.
        Oh yes, you’re welcome.

I would love to read your thoughts!
