Struggling with self-doubt? Here’s a collection of bad bitch quotes to awaken your self-confidence and boost your self-esteem! 

Now, before anything else. Let’s discuss the definition of bitch first. 

What does the word bitch really mean?

For years, the word bitch has been given such a negative meaning that we have learned to associate it with someone who is disliked and difficult. 

According to Cambridge Dictionary, the word bitch refers to an “unkind and unpleasant woman”.

But over the years, the definition “bitch” or “bad bitch” has slowly changed. 

I refuse to associate the word bitch with someone who is unpleasant. 

For me, a bitch is someone who is not afraid to be who she is regardless of what other people say. A bad bitch is not someone who is difficult, rather she is someone who is not afraid to speak her mind, to go after what she wants, and to put herself and her needs first. 

A bitch is someone who knows that the only validation and approval they will ever need is their own. She is someone who rises every time she falls.

Someone who reminds herself that tough times never last, who uses other’s people doubts and criticisms against her as her fuel to work harder in achieving her goals. 

She lets go of negativity and focuses on her journey. 

Now, being a bad bitch doesn’t seem too bad, right? 

We can all be bad bitches, sometimes we all just need a little nudge to awaken that inner self and take life by storm. 

These bad bitches sayings and quotes will definitely do the trick!
