Apparently, women are supposed to be fragile and weak and men are responsible to protect women and provide for them. If you are a woman and independent then you are not following the norms. But if you happen to be a DESI independent woman then you, my dear friend, go through A LOT every day!

Here’s what happens when you are a DESI independent woman:

1. Nobody actually understands what being an independent woman means

People will misunderstand you, they will misjudge you but remember one thing – You are who you are and you don’t wake up everyday to please others! Be strong, be independent, be whatever you like! Don’t let people bring you down for who you are
