Women. We are intriguing creatures to say the least. We all have so much to offer this crazy, beautiful world. So why is there so much hate between us?
I’ve noticed it my entire life. Girls bullying other girls. Girls being cruel to other girls. Girls being downright vicious to other girls. It’s constant in our world, and now easier than ever to do thanks to technology. And it doesn’t just happen in high school, oh no. It continues in college and far beyond. Woman on woman hate clearly does not discriminate against age: there are plenty of women 40+ who STILL just can’t get with it. But to me, these “women” are not women. They behave like little girls. As one of my favorite quotes puts it, “Empowered women, empower women.”
“Empowered women, empower women.”
I’ve been exposed to the extreme levels of pettiness that girls will go to when they feel threatened by women. And I’ve had enough.
It’s time for change. Women, now is the time to encourage fellow women in their endeavors. Now is the time to stand up for other women. Now is the time to become the woman who empowers other women. Now is the time to stop tearing other women down, and start building them up.
Together, we can do so much more and be so much more.
Much love to all my ladies out there (Ashlee Burns, Erin Kelly, Tori Williams, my Shooting Stars squad, my mother, grandmother, and countless more). You’ve all shown me so much love and support and I couldn’t be more grateful for you role models. I love you all so much. This one’s for you!
