Women need to support other women. It’s that simple. I’m not sure why this is always such an issue but it really shouldn’t be. I cringe when I see posts and different articles where women are bashing eachother about everything from how they parent to thoughts on how terrible they think their hair may be to what they “shouldn’t” be wearing and everything in between. It is ridiculous. How do we expect everyone else to support us as women if we can’t even show support to each other? Why should we even make the effort, you wonder?? Here’s why:
Ever heard of your vibe affecting your tribe?? This is 100% the case when it comes to supporting each other. If you want to get love, you have to show love.
Women are the heart of most families. We are usually the deciding factor when it comes to making big decisions like which house to buy or even what we should have for dinner. The lil’ people that we are raising see this. Being a good a example by supporting other women will help the little ones that you’re raising to do the same.
There is enough hate in the world. Let’s be honest, you can turn on the tv or scroll on social media at any given time and run across at least one story where hate is being spewed. Be it a politician, police officers, you name. Why add to it? Do your part to stop the cycle.
Men judge us enough. Countless men compare and judge us based on our skin color, hair color, the size of our hips and lips…I mean it doesn’t stop. Funny thing is, I don’t see men do it to each other nearly as often that men do that to each other. If we want them to stop, then we should, and hope that they follow suit.
Great things happen when we support eachother. The amount of successful businesses, podcasts, movies, and more that have come from women supporting each other cannot be ignored. When you put our minds together, our potential is endless! There is power in a pack of women. Lean into it, not away from it.
Now that we have some reasons why we should support each other. Let’s see how we can support:
Leave positive, supportive comments on social media. This is easy and doesn’t cost you a thing. If you don’t have anything nice to say…say nothing.
Shop at women owned businesses. There are tons of women owned businesses out there. (You’re actually reading a blog of one!) When you show your support by shopping with women, you help to keep the business open. Watching women produced movies creates more movies and more tv shows, etc.
Give advice and offer help. If someone is soliciting help where you can offer some expertise. Offer it up! What’s the harm?
