Girlhood, Sisterhood, Its All Good
Listen, the way Jalyssa got me all the way together in her blog post from yesterday? She's just a bomb woman and an amazing friend. We've been talking about all things women empowerment lately, and the dialogue has been dope. If you haven't read her post, read it here. So how fitting was this shirt that I wore over the weekend?
Lets keep it all the way real, I've been on both sides. I've rooted for my friends like it was myself crushing those accomplishments, and I've also sized up another woman when she walked into the room. Why do we do the latter? Is it insecurities? jealousy? inferiority?
What if instead of sizing her up, I walked over to her and was like, "Hey! I'm pretty cool, you look pretty cool, wanna be friends?" What if we pushed the awkwardness and fear aside, and took that step to make a possible friendship?
Whether it be on social media or in person, find your tribe. I know social media can sometimes be a place where we fall into the comparison trap, but its brought me some of the dopest women, that I've cultivated a relationship with outside of those squares. So find those women. The ones you can call on for the good, the bad, and everything in between. The ones that build you up and pour into your spirit. No shade, no competition, but just real, genuine connection. That's what matters.
