She undermines, degrades and lashes out.
Why does she choose to do this?
Does she feel threatened by our independence and then desires to take us down a few notches?
Does she need everyone in her life to be less than her, so she can feel strong, even if it is only for a moment?
Has her trauma gone unhealed for far too long and she has a gaping wound that gets reopened by women like us?
What do I mean by “Women like us?”
- Women who are independent and actually live it out every day.
- Women who aren’t afraid to speak up for themselves.
- Women who are healing their wounds that will eventually be scars.
- Women who are brave, vulnerable, and harness the power within.
We want to help other women with wounds, yet they don’t acknowledge there are wounds.
We want her to know that we can see her wounds, even though she tries to cover them up with shame.
If she snarls and bites, are we to take the lashing?
We are to move on to the women who want and need support.
Women who acknowledge there is a wound, are dressing it, giving it time to heal, and seeking a professional if the wound isn’t healing and is causing pain, the kind of pain that is so deep it can’t be ignored.
We are all one in solidarity and want YOU to join us but you’re too afraid of being exposed.
Vulnerability is hard and we know because we are vulnerable. That vulnerability is what brings us together and unifies our experiences and allows us to rise up and help other wounded women.
Will you be on your deathbed with shame and regret? Or will you heal, share, and rise in oneness?
Embrace the woman that is yearning to be seen, heard, and celebrated for the beautiful goddess that’s waiting to be released and ready for her debut.
