Independence isn’t some grandiose gesture most of the time, it’s just being self-reliant about the smallest, everyday things, especially the nearly invisible but overarching truths. Because people, and women especially, have an uphill battle while they’re writing their stories, and that’s whether their feelings and thoughts and experiences will be imbued by their desire to be honest or sullied by other people’s dismissiveness.
It’s the way we speak to ourselves that only matters in the end. The story is being a human, how we tell it is being a person.
You are Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice
With a sensitive heart, deep intuition for the virtues and failings of others, and a love of nature, you share a great deal with Elizabeth Bennet. Although your emotional intelligence and wit (not to mention your fine eyes) make you a noticeable presence at social gatherings, you need time alone to process such scenarios, often outdoors.
Although you will speak your mind if provoked, you internalise emotions on occasions leading to outbursts further down the line. Indeed on bad days, this trait may lead you to become stubborn and undemonstrative but your warm, intuitive heart will eventually lead you to love.
