Have you ever heard the expression, hurt people hurt people?
Well, here’s a new one for you: Empowered women empower women. I have never been a fan of female competition, and if I sense it nearby, I generally shy away. I just don’t see the point of competing with, putting down or outdoing other women when each one of us is so uniquely different and has our own qualities to offer each other. The more women support, encourage and empower each other, the more we can accomplish in the world together. But the more we judge, compete with and step over each other, the more divided we will be. It takes a village, and the village starts here.
Most monogamous relationships typically have one pursuer, a partner who seeks out intimate connections with their partner, thinks quickly on the spot, and needs immediate answers and one withdrawer, the other partner who needs their space, takes time to process their feelings and likes to resolve conflict after finding some clarity.
There is nothing wrong with a pursuer/withdrawer dynamic, provided both partners are aware and attune to each other’s needs and there is an open line of communication between them.
You can review this chart to understand the dynamic clearly!
I want to leave you with this.
Intention - one of the 3 elements to my Empowered Woman movement. The opposite of intention is apathy. Living your life day in and day out, with no purpose, no goals and no meaning. Living your life without intention is a choice! It may be less work and it may be easier to please others, but it comes with a great cost. Living your life without intention, also means that you don’t care about changing your circumstances, as unfortunate as they may be. Living without intention can also mean that you allow people to hurt, control and use you without creating healthy boundaries and empowering choices for yourself. Living without intention means that you don’t respect yourself enough to actually care. It’s very easy to remain stagnant and blame our misfortunes on the difficult hand we’ve been dealt, but the longer you allow yourself to remain prisoner to your misfortunes, the harder it becomes to take control of your life and make intentional choices. You may not have it easy, but you always have a choice to make. And your choices can be intentional.
