I am very fortunate to have so many talented and confident women in my life. Instead of being envious and jealous, I celebrate and admire them (plus, this view makes your life so much happier). We accept our differences; and offer support when our views and decisions are unpopular. We value the meaning of “friendship” and don’t push each other away. And there’s trust, for which true friendship is built upon.
Sometimes I feel that I am living in a Bravo “housewives” series. I am sure that many of my readers feel the same. I no longer care if I am not invited to a party or left out of other social circles. Life is too short and I would rather have quality friendships than quantity. And, when did women start hating other women? Or is this something that began with the world and will haunt us from junior high to the grave. Note: I am not perfect and have my faults. But maybe maturity has finally settled in and these situations exhaust me.
The quote above has so much meaning. I feel that women are our own worst enemies. We can conquer anything if we would be kind and not bitchy. We need to offer encouragement, not put each other down. And the worst, (I am guilty of this too!) gossiping behind each other backs. Because guess what? We all find out what is said.
So here’s your goal: Congratulate another woman on an achievement or support a friend who is having a difficult time. This kind of positivity will make a difference and possibly make incredible things happen!
