While single, I couldn’t believe “how much people would judge a woman’s worth
or judge how successful she is based on whether or not she’s married.

But everybody meets their own person in their own time,
and I don’t think a woman should be looked at like,
‘Oh, you’re still not married?’ Why do people still think that way?!”
