If you’re one of those that have to post a meme on social media, bashing someone to make yourself feel better, you’re part of the problem. If you’re one of those that bashes others because they aren’t at the same point of their lives as you are with yours, you’re part of the problem. If you’re one of those that smiles to someones face, but then to others you talk trash, YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM! There is so much talk and preach about building others up, supporting each other, and most importantly LOVE YOURSELF AND OTHERS. Yet, you turn around and slyly make someone else feel less than, just so you can make yourself feel better. I saw a meme on facebook the other day that said something to the affect of “shoutout to the real women who don’t get their hair and nails done, because they put their family first.” Well, I can assure you that I am not one to get my hair and nails done. The last time I had my hair cut was 2 years ago, and 3 weeks ago I had my first pedicure in over 5 years. I decided to take my daughter on a girls day so we could treat ourselves, and to be honest, I think we are going to do it more often. But, back on point, this meme bothered me pretty bad. Just because a woman chooses to get her hair and nails done does not make her any less of a woman than you. If that’s something that makes her happy, to feel good about herself, or just to give her sometime to herself, then back off. Just because someone chooses to spend their free time or extra money differently, does not make them any less. You my like to go get a new outfit with your extra money, while I am over here in old holy clothes and spend my extra money on a new bridle I have been eyeballing for a while. To each their own. We all have our different interests, our different releases, our different ways. How are we suppose to build each other up and support each other if we are constantly comparing and degrading others for their differences. How about, it doesn’t matter, as long as a woman is a good mom, she works hard(whether at a job or at home), and she takes care of her family then, that makes her an amazing woman. Or the man who does the same, he works hard, he’s a great dad, and he takes care of his family, then that makes him an amazing man! Lets build each other up, not tear them down! Lets support, not degrade! Be the solution, not the problem!
