Just like men, women represent a huge spectrum of personalities. We often times get labeled as emotional, cliquey, dependent, and bitchy. More often than not, these labels are untrue and the sad thing is a lot of women are helping to enforce this stereotype by not being supportive of other girls out there. Having been back in the customer service/retail world for a couple months now, I've been strongly reminded of my resolution. I've helped the bad ass chick I would want to have a beer with, as well as the stereotypical mean girl.
I'm a much happier person after enacting the "support women" resolution. A friend once told me, "celebrate the character". When I meet other women that are much different than myself, I will remind myself to celebrate the character rather than be so darn critical. So if you're a girl and you're reading this- please consider supporting the female sex rather than reinforcing hurtful stereotypes.
In life news, Dr.H celebrated his 31st birthday last week. There were presents, cake, sunshine, and hiking!
