…All Women Are Beautiful…
Why is it that us women spend so much time breaking each other down when we should be building each other up. I can’t even count the number of times where I was called names or had another female say such negative thing about me. It’s hard to find a woman these days who isn’t self-conscious or insecure because of how catty and mean we are to each other.
Writing for the sites that I do, I have done articles on women who felt so low about themselves because of something that had been said to them either once or multiple times over the years. Some men don’t exactly help the situation either.
Even myself, I have been told that I am fat, ugly, or even dumb. Plus, much worse. My own stepfather had once told me that I should go kill myself. So sweet, right? We tend to let go of the positive things that have been said to us because of all the negativity that we have been told repeatedly.
Why can’t we help build each other up by saying nice things and giving good compliments? Even just telling another female that they are beautiful, that they are wearing an amazing outfit and look great in it, or even just stating that you love their eyes can make their day that much brighter.
I worked with a girl in a doctors office who would run around saying, “HTH” (Hate The Hair) about anyone that even had so much as a little frizz. Some women are just so judgemental and part of it could possibly be that they dislike the way they look so they try to tear others down.
All women are beautiful in their own way. It doesn’t matter what size, race, height, age, or anything else that they are because they are still phenomenal.
Some women find it hard to love themselves because of the things that have been said or done to them. I am one of them and I know I am not the only one. There are women in my life who I love and care about that have such striking natural beauty, but they are all so self-critical and can’t see their own beauty… inside as well as out.
So, maybe we try to start building each other up.
