It’s Thursday evening. I’ve been yawning all day. I’ve spent most of my day stuck in the office, I’m mentally tired. I’ve also walked 11,000 steps on a campus tour, I’m a bit physically tired too. I jump in the car with my other half, we drive home, get changed and drive to the gym.
I’m not feeling empowered. Not yet anyway. How lucky am I to be surrounded by other fierce females who cheer me on and keep me going when all I want to do is curl up in a ball? (Very.)
What really made me feel thankful was overhearing a conversation about me. Of course, normally that would send me into a spiral of paranoia and despair but not this time. This time I heard words about appearance, primarily my change in shape and how strong I’m getting, I was told that I look focused. Such a refreshing change from humdrum droning simply about weight loss.
Us girls get a shit time of it really and despite us going through similar trials and tribulations, girls are great at giving each other more shit. Why?
Females should be thriving on complimenting each other; feeling emboldened from having the strength and integrity to feel secure enough to give these compliments. Complimenting from the heart and not because they feel obliged by the situation
Those receiving compliments should thrive on pride (they obviously deserved the comment!) and be grateful that someone has used their right to comment on increasing positivity.
Increase the peace x
