As women, we can be so supportive and nurturing to one another. On the other hand, we can sabotage one another in ways that cut more deeply than any other wounds we might receive. Our relationships are so complex, aren't they?
As I received promotions in a former workplace, I had to contend with a certain amount of sexism and male privilege. However much that angered or distressed me, it never hurt as deeply as when other women cut me down (or cut me up!). Those experiences made me look at my own behavior, too. In what ways did (do) I do that to my sisters?
I want to be a supporter of other women—not a saboteur. How about you? In what ways do you encourage and support other women? And have you ever pulled the rug out from under another woman? Or had others do that to you? Let's see if we can draw out the best in each other.
