The Importance of lifting each other up – It’s all about Girl Power

This past week I have seen so many women supporting each other, being full of girl power, promoting each others businesses and generally being all overies before brovaries. It gave me all the warm fuzzies.

BUT

There’s always a but isn’t there?

I’ve also seen the usual girl on girl hate, women attacking women, girls being hateful because they are jealous of their peers success, and you know what? It’s getting us nowhere. What about Girl Power? What we need to be doing is supporting each other and lifting each other up, it takes the same amount of energy to be nice as it does to be a bitch and you’ll feel infinitely better, you’ll make someone else’s day AND you will reap the rewards of creating positive energy.

Comparison is the theif of joy

Everyone is on their own journey so there is no point in playing the green eyed monster, it will only make you feel inadequate and do nothing for your drive. Having someone do better than you takes nothing away from your journey or from your contribution! Put the green eye’d monster to bed & focus on the positives in your own life.

On the other hand I get that there are people you don’t like, no one likes everyone, it’s not human nature, but this is where the age old saying comes into play – “if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. I’m not saying this applies to all situations, but if you see someone doing something you don’t like? Ignore them! Would you walk up to a stranger in the street and say what you write? I didn’t think so.

In April I released the Modern Feminist Honey Pop Club Box full of items by amazing women indie designers, some of whom I know personally and some I knew of because I followed them on instagram. The beauty of the Honey Pop Club box is that it’s all about empowerment, all about girl power!

I want to share the brands I love with you and it’s just an added bonus that I get to spread the word about girl bosses kicking ass in the creative industries. It’s all about supporting each other and lifting each other up. When the world is trying to tear us down we need to remember it’s all about…

GIRL POWER!

    Today my little 14 year old brother told me how he thought that “feminists are annoying”. That totally backfired, and (yes, I admit it) I ended up giving him a mini lecture in the hopes that he’d see how wrong he is. I tried to explain how important it is to uplift women, and ensure equality is seen all around. But as a guy, he just doesn’t understand.

    I think that, as well as all the points you’ve made here, is there reason that us girls need to uplift each-other. And every time we are told to shut up, we need to shout LOUDER. Every time we are told to sit down, we need to stand TALLER. Every time someone falls down, we need to UPLIFT THEM. Let love and equality rule over all else.

    THIS! I think so many people get caught up in hating in others for their success or failures we forget to be supportive. Thank you for putting what I’ve been thinking into words.
