Tracee Ellis Ross gave a powerful speech at Glamour’s 2017 Women of the Year Summit. She spoke about how writing the words “My life is mine,” in her journal brought tears to her eyes. Writing those words, she realized she hadn’t been living her life as if it was her own.

She recognized that when women put themselves first by doing such things as saying no or speaking up, they are condemned and told they are being selfish, among other things.

What are you saying “yes” to that you want to say “no” to?
