Happy New Year my loves! (insert grand fireworks here). Wow, I can't believe I survived 2016 gracefully, lol! I am so ready 2017, bring it on!
Around year 90 forgotten, I'm not sure why most women on social media are making this 'bitch' attitude as something praise worthy. Being a 'bitch' is that girl who always competes: that kinda girl who always finds other girl as competition when she feels insecure. The girl who thinks she deserves better than other people, she's selfish and she'll do anything (even stepping on other people's heads) just to get there, ungrateful brat, she's insincere (and will never get the sincerity of other people too), insensitive, rude, proud, and all the ugly things. She might be older than you but of a soul of a toddler, that's why I'm referring 'her' as 'girl' not a woman.
I'm just glad there are more and more women today who are beating this ugly culture with showing love and kindness to people around them. I am challenging you (and myself) to take part, make it a contagious practice. Let's empower one another.
How to start? here's my 'empower others' kit for starter. *giggles* Bear in mind my friends, I am no saint at all. This article or the pointers are the result of my research and observation only. If you think you have anything to add, be my guest! :)
Sensitive and Sincere.
Don't be a bully by making fun of others or gossiping other ladies. Dumb crowd gossips but smart women talks about ideas. Also, whatever you do to others, do it sincerely. Do not expect anything in return.period.
You don't want to be around with girls doing 'trash talk' from time to time. But if you happen to be around with these kinds with no way out at all: Just listen and learn, pick up a thing or two but do not indulge her. Just in case you have to brag about something, do it in a way that will somehow empower your listeners. hehe!
If you notice positive things or anything admirable that are worth mentioning, please do not hold it back. I know there are challenges of being appreciative like for one: rejection. They'll even call you 'insecure' just because you noticed them and say pleasing things about them. That being said, I still do practice it. Feels so rewarding to be able to brighten up people's lives by saying good things about them, try it!
Ultimately, be a woman that's admirable and praiseworthy. Hope you'll have a great journey this year!
1 Peter 3:3-6
Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.
