This is a conversation I often have with my friend, Stephanie. I want to understand more why women sabotage each other. Why do we tear each other down instead of building each other up?
Why do we fight over men who probably wouldn’t do the same for us in return? Why do we gossip about one another? Accuse someone of sleeping their way to top? Hate another woman who we perceive as being “prettier” or better in some way?
Throughout life I’ve had many interesting encounters with women. And I don’t understand why we’re not more supportive of each other. It seems like we’re always trying to one-up the other on who’s having the worst day, the worst period cramps, the worst life.
Can’t we do something positive for each other as “sisters”? We could be each other’s greatest support, but instead we choose to dwell on what makes up petty (things that categorize women as being “catty”).
