So I’ve been thinking more and more over the past few years about how women can treat other women, and how unfair we are to one another sometimes. In every night out I’ve ever been on at least one negative comment is said about another woman’s looks, it’s like programmed into us, whether it stems from jealousy or pettiness its definitely relevant with women in today’s society. Thing is, is that I too was guilty of the odd jealous comment, I would see a really pretty girl and honestly think to myself “yeah but look her hair is kinda frizzy” or “that dress isn’t cute though” so I could feel better about myself and my comments were met with agreement from friends who are actually decent human beings they too (I would imagine) are just envious and give into this imaginary competition us women have with one another.
I’ve made a conscious effort to try and stop my mind from immediately going negative when experiencing jealousy and to turn whatever envy I may possess into a positive encouraging emotion, as I realize us women cannot achieve true equality if we are constantly giving into beauty standards and using them against one another. As much as I changed I began to realize more and more that others weren’t, So when I seen this top from Pansy Path I just couldn’t agree more:
