By Sanskriti Pandey:

I’ve never been ‘that girl’.

How many women wake up every day and find themselves under pressure to head out, feel great, look great, and be admired, loved, and gushed about? How many women feel constantly needful of a dynamic personality who is adequately feminine, who can put her makeup on flawlessly, and garner male attention every step of her way? How many of them give up at the end of every day and are reduced to an insecure question that sums up their lives – “What’s wrong with me?”

Maybe you were never destined to be “that girl”. Maybe you weren’t meant to define your femininity using the amount of attention you managed to attract. And maybe, you were meant to take your insecurities in your stride and live life on your own terms. In this video, a girl challenges social pressures in a fight to be just the way she is. She decides that she wants to be that girl. Watch!
