Jennifer Aniston’s got you covered. The actress took to the Huffington Post blog to express her frustration with tabloid culture, the unattainable beauty standards women face, and society’s constant commentary on her personal life. “We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child,” she wrote. “We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own ‘happily ever after’ for ourselves.” Her essay defending a woman’s right to not succumb to a single life path will seriously make your Wednesday.
