Let’s take something like blogging for example. We all know that there’ a lot of people in this blogging business and with this, we have built a community for one another. So, as a blogger, designer, or someone with a creative mind, we need to see this as a safe space to communicate and not compete. A lot of girls are just so focused on bringing the next girl down because that girl is doing better than them but we should know that to move up in life, you have to support and be positive towards those above us on the ladder. With this, they can give us a helping hand and bring us up along with them. Envy, hate, backstabbing, etc are not healthy ways to make yourself look good. Some would even go as far as spreading false rumours about someone, pretend to like them, start looking for ways to make them look bad. I’ve had a certain ‘friend’ indirectly ask me if I buy followers, likes and even borrow clothes. It’s absurd! What if i did? Is that gonna make you less of a person?
We need to realise that it is up to us as women to help one another. Genuine support doesn’t cost a thing.If your friend is doing great, show some love to them, if they are still struggling, help them up..your sincere love and support can go a very long way. Isn’t it funny how there are people who would go any length to support people that don’t even know them? (e.g., celebrities) but when their friends start something like a business or have a particular talent that they showcase, they get zero support. Even if you have no money to buy their stuff, help them share and broadcast, you never know who is gonna see it. Your friends can make it through the support that you give. Remember, if people around you are succeeding, you will also feel the impact on yourself.
Do away with negativity… “well if she makes it, will she even remember I exist?why should I even botherhelping her?’. You try first and if theperson doesn’t show any gratitude, then you know you’ve done your part and let their conscience judge them.
It costs nothing to give someone advice on what to do and how to do it. Some are so selfish that even if you ask them where they got a particular clothing from, they’d ignore you. Life is not that deep. I mean, what’s the point of the fame and popularity if you cannot use it to impact others and help those looking up to you? I get a lot of DMs from people about how to do stuff and sometimes, I might get too lazy to reply but I’ll make sure I reply at some point and give them the answer that they want.
I have come across a lot of women in my life that have sincerely inspired me in one way or the other and I really admire them; some I have met and some I have never seen. Their influence is the reason why I’m growing and hoping to grow even further. Famous or not, they have made impacts andI’m glad that I came across them.
