Ladies, when will we stop being in competition with one another? When will we stop the “cat fighting”, bickering, and displaying “petty” behavior towards each other? When will we start to uplift one another, empower one another, and encourage one another? Or how about learn from one another?
Is it easier for some of us to just put our invisible (in some cases visible) boxing gloves on, and get in the ring with each other? It’s time to STOP being female contenders towards one another.
Now I have had, and still have my share of female contenders. I was also once a female contender as well. One day I realized I am better off being in harmony rather than being in competition with my fellow sister. Insecure women compete with other women. I’ve learned how to handle my insecurities and embrace my imperfections, so competing with other women does not suit the woman I have become. I now know that I don’t have to stoop to my female contender’s level and get in the ring with her. Instead, I love her from a distance (as frustrating as this can be at times).
Here’s my message to female contenders:
Why would I be in competition with you? I’m too busy competing against myself! Each day that I have breath in my body, I am striving to be a better me! You see, I am my biggest competition!
So woman to woman, I applaud you, I salute you, I respect you, and I respect your hustle. Believe me when I say I wish nothing but the best for you. While I encourage you to be the best woman you can be, please know that I’m not interested in competing with you; as the competition within myself is more thrilling for me. So take your boxing gloves off, it’s going to be okay.”
Less contending and more uplifting ladies!! Be Blessed!!
