As a woman, I have noticed that we don’t support each other enough. We don’t encourage or congratulate each other enough. Women get a hard rap. We are wives, sisters, mothers, aunts, daughters, and friends. We wear so many different hats it’s crazy. But I have noticed that women compete with each other? Why sis are you competing with another woman? There is room for all of us. How about we uplift and support one another. Fix each other’s crown. We as women deal with enough to be in competition with someone else. We have so many jobs and we get tired but we keep ongoing. I don’t think men realize how much we do and how much we give. We not only work outside of the home but in the home as well. We don’t get a break and we don’t ask for help. Ladies take some time out for yourself and if you see another woman struggling help her. If you see someone who looks sad encourage her. We as women need a support system we need a sisterhood. Women you are powerful, creative, and much needed in this world.
I read a devotional called Yes Sisters, and I believe every woman should have her a Yes Sister. What a Yes Sister is, is someone who will be there for you no matter what you are going through. Someone who will be open and honest with you at all times. Someone who won’t talk about you behind your back but will tell you like it is to your face. I’ve noticed that I have a few of these Yes Sisters in my life and how much I appreciate them. Often women want to compete with one another and I just don’t understand why. Why not encourage, support and commend a woman. Why not fix her crown when it’s crooked. Why not cheer her on and wipe her tears? We don’t need to compete when we are on the same team. Get you some Yes Sisters they will change your life for sure.
As a woman, I felt so overwhelmed that I was not good enough. I have never been jealous of women, but lately, I’ve been feeling like why is there so much demand for looking perfect? I’m not perfect in no way. I have always struggled with my body. If you know me you know that I have always been thin and tall. Society makes you feel like you have to have the perfect body to be able to have a great life. Well, that is a lie because every woman that I know is struggling with their body type. Why can’t women just be loved for who they are? Men can walk around with beer bellies, receding hairline and whatever else. No one makes them feel bad about there bodies. But women have to look and be perfect all the time? I say why? I’m going to be me and do me. No more shame in my body, no more shame for other women’s bodies. Love yourself and don’t let anyone make you feel bad about your body. You know whether you need to lose weight, exercise or whatever. Love you and make sure you are good.
I’m not Superwomen
I thought I could be
I’m not Superwomen
No, she’s not me
I’ve tried to do all the things she’s done
But her strength
I’m not Superwomen. I’ve been labeled that but I don’t want to be her anymore. I do so much for other people that I rarely take the time out to do something for myself. If I’m tired and stressed, then I’m no good for myself or other people. Women we try to do it all. But we can’t do it all. It wasn’t meant for us to do it alone. I find myself being overwhelmed, but it’s my fault. Ladies stop trying to do it all. We need to ask for help. It’s okay to not be able to handle it all. STOP LADIES-STOP!!!!!!!! We are not Superwomen. I’m not Superwomen. I’m okay being me and not doing it all.
Me: I love helping people, I want everyone to succeed and I’m a good listener.
Her: Loves drama, wants to live her own life, party girl and looking and feeling good are a top priority.
Why can’t we have our cake and eat it too? Why can’t I combine the good and the evil?
