I want to become less judgemental of other women. I simply feel that us women tend to be harsher on each other, perhaps because we share much more with each other; we share personal stories and for some reason that opens up room for judgement instead of understanding.
Through this club, I learned to pause for five seconds before commenting on something, another woman’s appearance or story. I learned to think more carefully about giving my opinion. Sisterhood can be as simple as complimenting another woman and it would be ideal to create an atmosphere of acceptance instead of competition amongst ourselves.
I’m still going through the learning process, to be fair.
