Women need women in their lives that will support them unconditionally. We can all do our best to support one another whether it’s at work, home life or socially.
Women alone are strong but collectively we can create impact.
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” - Helen Keller
“And unfathomable change can happen when women support each other. In a society where we are often undermined, undervalued and unsupported, we need each other more than ever.” Says Mariah Maddox – editor of Motherly and author.
Here are a few suggestions on how to support the sisters in your life.
Celebrate each other’s accomplishments
Give your sisters praise for their achievements. Show her that you’re proud!
Celebrating another woman's success will raise her up and empower her. Women rise by lifting each other up.
Show genuine support
Listen to her story so she feels heard and offer honest, positive feedback and support.
Encourage women to be their best
All women deserve praise and encouragement. Sometimes it only needs to be a few words like ‘great job’ or ‘I really appreciate you’. Words of encouragement boosts confidence.
No two people are the same. We all have our differences which should be celebrated. Understand that all relationships will have varied dynamics. Also understand we all have things going on in our own lives that we’re not always aware of.
Story telling helps us connect. Be vulnerable to share your stories with your sisters and also be open to others being vulnerable with you.
