In honor of International women’s day. I wanted to write about that. As something that I feel like as women we have come so far, yet, still have so much more to keep fighting for.
The most surprising thing to me is that in this day in age, I find myself in alpha ego encounters with women. Or in this competition with them. Like who established that we were in a competition? Why are you feeling intimated by me? As if there is only room for one women to be the leading driving force. The only female to be in a high salary job, or the only female manager at an establishment. The only strong female that demands a presence. As someone, whom I would say has a presence about me, I find that other women then talk bad about me to other women. Or they see me as being cocky or sure of myself. First of all, when is being sure of yourself a bad thing? This is something I’m still working on and getting more comfortable with. Second, little do most people know that under this presence, is an someone fighting her insecurities, is someone just trying to put on this front to show strength.
