I stumbled on this segment this evening. I do not usually tune into Oprah's Life Class but a lot of the points discussed stood out to me. I love the point that was made about how true successful women want their fellow friend, co-worker, acquaintance, and family member to win too (I am paraphrasing of course lol). This point was powerful to me because a lot of us have allowed society to brain wash us into thinking that only one of us can make it and shine! To be honest, when one of us wins we all win! I will be transparent, I too have been guilty of that way of thinking. At the end of the day, there is room for all of us to win. We have to work harder at supporting one another, cheering each other on, and to stop betraying one another! This very thing gets in the way of friendships and relationships! I think that it is important for us to work through our own personal issues on a continual basis this way we are not projecting our own self hatred onto others.
I put a lot of emphasis throughout this site on knowing and loving who God created you to be. I think that when we continue to struggle with loving and accepting ourselves for who we are it becomes easy to become jealous and envious of our fellow sister, friend, co-worker, family member, etc. Just a thought that came to me after watching this clip.
What are your thoughts on the state of the sisterhood and the 5 reasons why we as women betray each other?
