My tribe

I’ve written about this topic before. It’s a topic that’s close to my heart. 

Women lifting women.

There’s nothing worse that a woman slamming a woman that is putting the work in to get the results she’s getting.

I see it all the time- people envy the ones that are getting out there and making things happen. 

There’s no point being envious of a good cook but not trying to be one yourself, or hating someone’s new body when you too could have it if you stopped making excuses of why you can’t. 

There are some women that work on their careers and people that don’t even pick up a book to read are hateful on the others achievements. 

If you admire something about someone- ask them to teach you or share their tips on how you can get it or become it also. Most people are happy to share their routines or tips.

Take notes on what triggers jealousy from yourself and work on it. Go and get what you want. Don’t just fantasise about it and slam women who are making the sacrifices to get what they want. 

Then there are those people that just look in on snippets of someone’s life and envy the outer picture, but don’t think for a second that there could be so much more going on in that persons life. Not everything is a perfect picture. 

Let’s catch women out that do this. Let’s stop it.

Not every woman walks around with a cloud of negativity over her head when she’s going through a  storm. Some can handle their stress better than others. Just because a woman uploads a photo of her smiling doesn’t mean her life is perfect. 

I hate comparison and competition! I’ve had some great women in my life over the years, but one thing that always breaks a friendship  is when they compare and compete. 

Life’s not a competition. We all have different journeys. I’m not running in a race. I’m moving at my own pace. 

Your story is different to someone else’s and you may not get your rainbow at the same time as someone else, but there is a rainbow somewhere out there for you.

But why are we competing? Why are we comparing? Let’s put an end to it.

I may be up to chapter 20 in my life and someone that’s only up to chapter 2 or chapter 50…. can’t compare themselves or compete with my chapter. 

We can only be inspired or take notes on things we would like to do or things we don’t like. Then apply them to our own lives. 

Why can’t we all learn from each other? Share our wisdom? Share our triumphs? Share our thoughts and concerns? 

I only want strong women around me, not ones that hate and make excuses. I don’t want women around me that turn on you the minute you make a mistake even though they know you well enough to know it was a mistake.

 I want unconditional love and consistency.

I don’t want to walk the plank when another woman struggles with insecurity and they feel like failures because I keep fighting to be more than just a passing soul on this earth. 

I don’t want want to exist. I want to live and serve in my life time. I want this world to be a better place. I want to inspire others and lift someone else when they need a lift.

Think about who’s in your tribe and which tribes you’re apart of. 

Lift another person… Don’t kick them when they’re down. 

We can all be successful and happy. This is not a race where there is one prize at the end. 

Who will you inspire on your journey?

Please share this so we can get some other women involved in building friendly tribes and support groups. Imagine what a nicer place this world would be.

Until next time… Make it a great day x

    This is a great post! Empowering! It is so true. I absolutely believe this too. Why hide when you can share a ‘secret’ that will help someone else?
    It won’t cost you anything, and could make a fellow sister’s life easier, or happier!

    Reblogged this on A Momma's View and commented:
    Here’s the thing: When I read a post and I love it a lot, I usually make a note to mention it in my Picks Of The Week. Sometimes though, I simply can’t wait for all of you to read it too. It’s when I read the post and constantly nod and say “yes! Yes! Yes!!!” It’s then when I simply can’t resist reblogging a post instead of only sharing it my list of posts I enjoyed reading at the end of the week. Now this one here is one of the posts I just can’t wait to suggest to you. What a fantastic post! So, nothing else to add to this besides: Read it!

    What a fantastic post! So true, so inspiring. Wow. I actually feel energized and somehow stronger after reading this!

  4. Definitely agree, it is always best to share and uplift others. Stop negativity and always see things on other person’s point of view. Support not only women but each other. Thank you very much for the wonderful post. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Such a thought-provoking post. Wow. I used to hear about reasons women do this to each other…that the competition is biological, we had a history of competing for men. Somehow, this got carried over to all aspects of life. Is she a better mom, wife, employee, boss, etc. ??? Love this post. Thanks to Sandra for sharing it. ๐Ÿ’•

    This is a wonderfully delusional post. Fact is, we women are our own worst enemies. Look at how advertising for beauty and fashion portray women as young, thin, nubile–forgetting about the older generation. Yet, I never see women having the backs of the elder. It’s body shaming, thin shaming, fat shaming, make up shaming–and the majority doing the shaming are women.
    We need to wake up and support each other and take your words to heart!
