Solomon says, I was always afraid of speaking up and offending people with my thoughts and opinions and saying no because I was afraid of making them uncomfortable and being called a Bitch. But as soon as I heard someone call me a Closet Bitch, which is a person whos afraid to be themselves and strong in front of people, I said, I might as well do what makes me happy and speak my truth because Im going to get labeled one way or the other. I rather be labeled a strong willed and powerful woman who doesnt take anybodys crap. Society usually calls this kind of woman a bitch, so I decided to give it an acronym, B.I.T.C.H. (a Bold Individual who Thinks Confidently of Herself). Hi fives and fist taps to all my B.I.T.C.H.s out there!
