‘I No Longer Sit at Tables Where I Might Be the Topic When I Get Up’

If you were as naive as me, once-upon-a-high-school you laid in bed at night dreaming of the day the Regina Georges and Gretchen Wieners of the world magically disappeared into the abyss of adulthood.

—ONLY to find out a decade later that those ‘Mean Girls’ don’t disappear with age, they just become moms.

The topics of gossip just transfer from your frizzy hair, ugly skirt, and deadbeat boyfriend to your bratty kids, unkempt home, and workaholic husband.

Well Katy Ursta is taking a stand against that nonsensical madness in a viral post that has all the “not quites” and “never get it rights” cheering over their imperfections AND their right to be part of a circle that builds them up rather than tearing them down.

Charging with the mantra that she “NO longer sits at tables where she might be the topic when she gets up,” Katy strikes a nerve with anyone who’s ever felt slighted by those who were supposed to be their supporters and friends.

Read her empowering post below, and be sure to share it with the women in your life who need to hear they’re worthy of a NEW seat at a different table:

“‘I NO LONGER SIT AT TABLES WHERE I MIGHT BE THE TOPIC WHEN I GET UP.’

Can I get an AAAAAMMMMEEENNNNN?!?!⠀

I used to think that in order to belong I had to sit at that kinda table. ⠀

I used to think that this is ‘just how women are.’⠀

I used to think that I just didn’t belong, that I wasn’t enough.⠀

DUDE let me drop another mic with a little Brene Brown talk…⠀

‘Our worth cannot be determined nor negotiated by other people.’⠀

So if you’re sitting at the table where the topic of conversation is someone else’ shortcomings, mistakes, imperfections flaws, or lawd the he said/she said gossip…⠀

I assure you that when you leave your seat, you’re likely the next topic of conversation.

GIRL, GET A NEW TABLE. ⠀

WITH BOLDNESS I share this- ⠀

FIND A NEW SEAT at a table of women who straight up ARSENIO HALL style root for their people to win. ⠀

FIND A NEW SEAT at the table with all the other not quites, and all the other never get it rights… ⠀

FIND A NEW SEAT where confidence is served like cake, LAUGHTER is a side dish and conversations that raise the bar is the main course… and there is absolutely no room left on the plate to speak ill of others. ⠀

It’s true this kinda table may be rare, but I assure you- dang there is always an open chair. ”
