Empowered women empower women.
Thats what we here at Cut Chic believe.
This is something I have been looking a lot at lately, as well as trying to define what this looks like. I seem to continue to encounter women who believe the opposite. You know the type... the ones who will throw you under that sale rack at Nordstrom so they can get that last pair of Prada heels on sale without batting an eye? Ok. So maybe you've never seen them do that but you know they would if they had the chance figuratively speaking.
Those that just view you only as competition; not a human, a friend, acquaintance, co-worker, family member or whatever it may be. Somehow, someway you might get in their way to get ahead in this dog eat dog world. How dare you. While I personally believe God has a plan for everyone and puts people in your life to grow you or steer you in a better direction. Can we just talk about how un-needed this petty competition is?
Now a little friendly competition obviously never hurt anyone don't get me wrong. But can we keep it to Mario Kart and Barre class? (Um, you are so going down when we play Mario Kart FYI) But I'm talking about the rip you with my words, suppress your success, throw you under a bus type of competition.
This past Saturday as I volunteered and watched the leader of the event get chewed and spit out by a woman for no reason at all. She simply just ignored it as she understood that the woman was going through a lot in her life. She handled it with such class and seamless effort. Her brutal words did not merit a reply clearly, which is exactly how she responded. She listened intently but sometimes the best thing to say is nothing at all. Such a beautiful representation to not let the people who feel the need to tear you apart, bring you down.
In case you're wondering we can all succeed together! Just because I succeed does not mean you can't. I promise there is room for all of us here, we all bring our own set of strengths to the table, whether the same position or not. Don't sell yourself so short. If anything other women should be supporting other women in all aspects of life.
So be a Dare Devil, don't be scared to go after you want and conquer the world but don't be a Devil Wears Prada to get there.
Go after that job, that dream, that outfit you never thought you could wear but why don't you bring a friend along for the journey rather than go at it by yourself. I promise it'll be more fun and less lonely at the top with all the other women there sparkling with you.
