Women vs. Themselves

4 Feb

You and Your…Sisters

As women we all know it’s a hard job just being us. Life has to seem a bit sour with extra lemons from another woman. You ever see a woman and her whole aura SCREAMS perfection? Maybe you have been this woman. Shooooot, we all have. You see her, and she’s beautiful. You decide to let her know she looks good, and what happens? She looks at you as if you stole something — instant attitude.

If you see a woman living it up, then let her. If you like her hair, ask her where she got it done. She may be reluctant to answer, but she will answer you. You may even make a friend. It took us years to be seen as an equal towards men. Now it’s time we treated each other with the same equality we fought for. Time and time again I see young women degrading each other, it’s sad, but what can we really do?

Personally as a young woman, I feel it’s important… wait scratch that. I stress that we support each other. Times are hard and living is rough. It’s a new year and new means change. Consistent progress brings success. As women how can we succeed with each other? Hold the door open for the lady next door. Give up your seat to the pregnant woman who just got off of work. Give a compliment when it’s due and when you receive one, say thank you. Anything less then you being polite is considered being a hater.

Let’s Get It Together

Women are territorial naturally because of our animal instincts. Those same females, to me, are insecure. These are the same women who hide behind negativity and too much make-up (ugh, I can’t stand the extra blushed cheeks). If the pretty girl bothers you every time you see her there’s a problem. This is when you look in the mirror and re-evaluate yourself.  Let that hate go, Boo. If we took the same amount of time loving every great detail about ourselves, the next chick *side eye* wouldn’t phase you.

How easy is it to hate? Very!! I’ve found myself hating on females before. If I did it to you, forgive me. I was a rebellious teenager with uber-attitude. From that young girl comes me, the more loving, logical Shelz. I love myself, every other female and you should too. Here’s where the hate stems from: one day when we needed a hug the most, we didn’t receive it. So come here let me give you a hug. *Opens arms wide* If no one ever told you, I support you all.

Unity is key. Whether you’re from Chicago or New York (you like pizza right?) So just like two different cities with one food that’s loved. We too have something similar in common. You may feel that Mrs. Perfect doesn’t deserve your respect. Nonethless she’s a woman just like you, and that should always be enough.

The next time you see her tap her and say, “YOU DID YA THANG GETTING READY TODAY!”

Love is YOU.

    Thank you for this post! I hope that many women read and appreciate the knowledge that you have blessed us with. It is such a shame how we hate on one another! Especially when we hate on our family/friends. I too was once guilty of that devilish breed of hatred and negativity. I had to find where it was coming from and why? Once I was able to declare myself free of all the misery, I began to not only uplift myself but other people! Ms. Shelz I applaud you, keep inspiring these women,continue to pass around hugs and kisses,Because only the lord knows how much this world really needs it!

    Girl you have said a lot. It is so true. Women tend to look at the next sister and judge her without even knowing her. We don’t know what it took for that person to get where they are. Instead of putting each other down we need to support one another. For me I love the fact that I have positive female friends in my corner. We have to start loving one another not only will we feel better about ourselves it is what God expects from us.

    Wow Shelz, Very Poignant!
    I commend and applaud you for bringing that awareness. It begins within, once your comfortable and secure within yourself then and only then can you appreciate,respect and
    love others with love and not jaundice.

    Keep up the good work young lady!

    Absolutely. Hating first comes from hatred we have harbored inside for ourselves. Good job.

    Tell it like it is, niece! Ifor one am tired of the “fakeness as well as the bitchassness” in both male and females.

    If your vibe does not appear sincere and your energy is the equivalent of “kryptonite, I’m not rocking with you, period!
