This question can be posed many ways; lots of options come to mind.
1. Why are you single?
2. Why are you a single mom?
3. Why should you be his wife?
4. Why should you get this new job?
5. Why should you be promoted?
6. Why did you get fired?
7. Why did you become self-employed?
8. Why did he break your heart?
9. Why did he cheat on you?
10. Why did you move to a new city or town?
There are so many different scenarios that can play out; but will they all generate the same answers or response?
As a woman I’m sure we can relate to a few of the different questions posed and may very well have a detailed story for each of them.
While we all may lead very different lives we all still have one thing in common; we are all women and we can all experience the same kinds of trials and tribulations.
Being that we are all women shouldn’t we have each other’s back? Have a mutual respect for each other? Even though we may not personally know each other?
I don’t know where it started or how it even got started or who sent out the memo that we were even suppose to be at odds; but we all can go so much higher and reach all time highs, if we just did our best to respect and admire one another!
When you are walking down the street or hallway at work; would it be so awful to speak to the other woman walking towards you? Never mind she may look mean or like she doesn’t want to be bothered! You have no idea what she is facing, what she is going through or what she has been through! Your words can very well be what she needs to hear a simple “good morning” can brighten anyone’s day, especially if they are dealing with all kinds of craziness at home or on the job!
You speaking to them with just a hint of positivity can trigger that goodness in their mind that may have been covered up and just needed to be released!
As a woman I have experienced so much dislike from my fellow sisters and I know many of you can relate! Much of the dislike has no warrant at all on our part; so of us simple walk in the room and the looks of death start raining down! Why? I can’t fully answer that question but I will say that I never allow it to stop me from being who I am; kind, considerate, compassionate, emphatic, loving, caring and supporter to many; even those that dislike me!
Ladies never allow anyone not even the next woman to steal your shine! We all can rise to the top! We don’t have to dislike the next woman for her climb up the ladder; support her, cheer her on, be her biggest supporter; so when it’s your turn you can expect the same.
What else can we as women do to be better in our sisterhood?
