de la noră la soră

Some women discriminate against other women, just as much as some men do.

Sometimes even more.

To my deepest regret, I admit having felt less of certain people because they happen to be women.

And other women have felt less of me due to the same reason.

When was the last time you, the woman on the other end, felt genuinely happy for another woman’s achievement? Be honest with yourself.

Noi credem că prezența altor femei puternice cumva scade din puterea și succesul nostru. Simțim că odată cu prezența lor crește concurența, iar șansele noastre de a excela scad.

Noi nu credem la fel despre bărbați. They were kinda always there. They will definitely always be around.  And there’s nothing we can do about it. So we know that competing with them is a given.

We can, however, prevent other women from becoming smarter and more powerful. So we do that.

Noi vrem noi să fim cele puternice. Noi vrem fiicele și surorile noastre să fie puternice, nu și nurorile. Noi vrem mamele să fie puternice, nu și soțiile. Noi vrem prietenele noastre să fie de succes, mai puțin colegele de lucru. Because that would just make our lives so much more complicated.

Uităm că sora cuiva e nora alteia. Că mama cuiva e soția altuia. Că prietena noastră e colega de lucru a alteia.

Competing means working alone. And working alone is so much harder, and takes so much longer than working together.

Maybe it’s time to be less of an individual player, and more of a team member if we really want to get things done.

  1. hm, sincer mie imi plac femeile puternice, in special de linga mine. I feel like i need role models, si role models pe care le pot observa, vad cum cresc, pentru ca acolo eu vad clar cum sa depus efortul si vad cum cind incerci se primeste
    desi recunosc ca mii greu sa formulez al cui succes ma deranjeaza =) tre de mai auto-reflectat
