“I Just Don’t Trust Other Women”: Why Are Some Women So Harsh on Each Other?
Why are some women so harsh with other women but give men a pass no matter how badly they’re treated?
I’ve noticed that some women are very harsh with each other, but don’t reserve the same passion and fervor for dealing with men who treat them badly.
I guess it starts with the need to compete, which is taught to us as children — women who constantly feel threatened by other women instead of simply believing fully in their OWN woman power are more apt to “hate” on other women OR talk about other women as if they are the enemy.
Another reason: women who constantly complain about the behaviors, actions and intentions of other women may see something about THEMSELVES that they don’t like in that other woman, such as being overtly sexual, having a type A personality, being bitchy or making silly decisions about men.
Women together are powerful. Women separated are power-limited or powerless — especially when a man is involved. He gets all that precious power.
Think About It
The next time you catch yourself thinking, saying or doing something that is anti-your sister, reconsider. Switch over to a positive thought of her and release it all to God.
Remember: when you hate on or rebuke another woman you’re indirectly and unconsciously hating on or rebuking yourself!
