Dealing with self-doubt or a lack of inspiration? The bad bitch quotes below are the perfect source of inspo to whip your self-confidence back into shape.
Who’s your favorite bad bitch?
The word “bitch” comes with an endless amount of negative connotations. Merriam-Webster defines “bitch” as “something that is extremely difficult, objectionable, or unpleasant.” But, as the phrase “bad bitch” rises in popularity, the definition of “bitch” has been revamped. Today, I believe a “bitch” is a positive, goal-oriented person that isn’t swayed by the negativity of others.
Below I have compiled quotes from some of my favorite bad bitches throughout history, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Tina Fey, and Cardi B.

How do you deal with negative comments from others?
Take a note from the bad bitches featured above and don’t let the negative thoughts of others penetrate your thinking. I’ve learned that the reason why people are outwardly demeaning is because of their insecurity and jealousy. They see that you are living in your truth and they are too afraid to live in their own.
Keep chasing your dreams and turning your goals into fruition. Soon, those negative people will become fans in the sidelines.
