Todays podcast episode is about the importance of women supporting women in all aspects of life. Often, I read negative comments on Instagram from women stating their opinion about another woman’s physical appearance, which encouraged me to talk about this matter and share my personal experience regarding the occasional lack of support from women. The remarks are often unsolicited and nasty in nature, which leads me to ask “why?” What’s the purpose of putting someone else down that is doing nothing to you and instead, living their best life?
Over the years, as my relationships with women have evolved and transcended into various dynamics, I’ve become much more aware of the people I choose to share my time with. Primarily, this became important when I noticed that it was much harder to celebrate others than to be available during the challenging times. Today, I look for confidence as a key characteristic when choosing my friends because the more confident a woman is, the less likely they are to “hate” on other women.
From wearing makeup to embracing your own sense of style, some women across all social media platforms share their thoughts (both negative and positive) if a another female is stepping into their own identity. In today’s episode on WOWW Podcast, I discuss why I think this is and how we can learn from the moments when we find ourselves playing the comparison game. Often times, it can highlight if we’re living in a scarcity mindset because somewhere, we believe there isn’t enough for everyone, especially us. Other times, when we’re hating on other women, it can serve as a reflection for the things we’re secretly insecure about. In both circumstances, confidence is lacking.
If we want the world around us to change and acknowledge our presence, we must encourage each other to do it among ourselves first. By uplifting and celebrating one another, we set the example for the rest of the world to see and follow.
