An Open Letter To Women

Posted: March 12, 2018

As women, the most important thing we can do for our cause is to create support systems instead of pulling each other down like patriarchy wants us to.

Dear Women,

Keep growing. Have a circle of your own. Don’t close yourself in four walls, not much nor many grow there. Have your girl gang. Be on forums. Join a community of people who are experts in their own field. Reach out for an advice when needed. Don’t burn yourself and the ones around in your ego.

It’s okay to be wrong. But don’t stop learning. That’s wrong. Wisdom doesn’t come naturally or supernaturally with age. It comes with right kind of knowledge. Work for it. Again, reach out.

Be supportive. Don’t marinate in someone’s mediocrity and put down other women, young or old. Hold their hand and look in the same direction.

Take your own space, create it, if need be. And give the ones around you, their own. If you want a table to stand, a sofa to settle, you have to give it the space to stand, a place to settle. Give it that.

Change is vital, the only constant. Accept change with open arms. Old ways won’t open new doors. Update yourself. Find your best version.
