The Power Of Women

11 Apr

Every woman has come across THAT girl at some point in their life. “That girl” being the girl who is constantly trying to compete with you, make you jealous, bring you down, spread rumors, steal your boyfriend, and talk behind your back.

The older I get, the more pity I have for these types of girls.

Women are so powerful. Not only on a macro level, but also on a micro level like simply being a good friend. All women go through the same or at least similar experiences in life. We will all fall in and out of love, we will all get our hearts broken, some will get cheated on, we will all cry, some will get married and some divorced, some will have babies, some will become widows, some will be diagnosed with a life changing disease, some will be rich and some poor, we will all get our first periods, we will all have sex for the first time, we will all get menopause, some will get lonely, some will feel lost, some will be happy, some will be successful, we will all make mistakes, some will have regrets and we will all need someone to share these milestones with.

So, despite all this, why are we still having to deal with “THAT girl?”

You would think that since we all go through very similar stages and experiences in life that we would be more willing to embrace each other. But it seems like still, for some reason, some women take pleasure in the pain and failures of other women.

It’s not healthy. It’s not right. And it’s a part of what I hate about the culture and society I live in. For some reason, our brains have been engrained with the idea that we must always try and be better than the next girl. Smarter, skinnier, prettier, funnier, a better cook, a better girlfriend or wife, a better mother, etc. This concept in our culture is an insanely distorted and antiquated way of thinking that we must put an end to. Women are not the enemy, they aren’t the competition and we have to stop looking at them this way.

Some of the hardest times in my life have been made even harder by certain hateful women. Likewise, they have also been made easier by other supportive women and let me tell you, it makes a huge difference.

Instead of trash talking and being jealous of the beautiful girl, get to know her. She has insecurities just like you.

Instead of judging the girl who made a mistake, remember that she is human and you have made mistakes too.

Instead of fighting over something that wont matter in two years, forgive each other.

Instead of laughing at other women’s failures, hug them and tell them about the many times you’ve failed too.

Instead of feeling sorry for the girl who is mourning the loss of a loved one, tell her you wish you could be as strong as her.

Instead of getting annoyed with the girl who wont dump her cheating boyfriend, listen to her and be there for her when she does find the courage to leave.

Instead of using insults like fat, whore, bitch, and slut, try complimenting each other and encouraging each other.

Instead of judging the girl who sleeps around and the girl who is a prude, embrace them – we all live our lives differently and that is beautiful.

Instead of hating the girl who is dating your ex boyfriend, be mature, they deserve to be happy.

Instead of sulking alone in your room, reach out to your girl friends, tell them about your pain and they will help you heal.

We are all just trying to find ourselves and this is no easy feat. So, why make life, which is already hard enough, even harder for each other?

Lets learn to stand up for each other, encourage one another, support one another and be more understanding of the fact that life is not easy and all we have to help us through… is each other.

Women are the most powerful weapon that other women have.

That said,

Mom, Aunt Cindy, Aunt Diane, Colbie, Grandma, Hannah(s), Angela, Casey, Michelle, Rachel, Jamie, Kelsey, Gessenia, Kristen, Christine, Ellen, Kiana, Dayna, Lauren, Dahlia, Cynthia, Sandra, Brittany, Meaghan, Karli, Jess, and Aarti —

Thank  you for not being THAT girl. Women heal women and at some point or another, each one of you has healed me. And I will never, ever forget that.
