Because We Can

That mean girl mentality needs to be squashed.

And mommas – it starts with us.

What do our daughters hear us say about other women – even in the privacy of our own home? What type of words are we using? They understand them.

Be careful, momma.

When another woman walks into the room what vibe do we give off? Our daughter feels it.

Texting another woman about another woman across the room – our daughters see that, and they absolutely “get” it.

When we are on the phone with our best friend what words are we using? They hear them.

And that social media mean girl is a whole other type of monster.

What are we typing? What are we reposting? They see it. They read it.

We are their first role model. That’s a lot of pressure, and it should be.

Let’s strive to be better for them.

Let’s break out of the mold for them.

Let’s celebrate others for them.

Let’s love with our whole hearts – for them.

Let’s raise up a generation of young women that encourage and empower other young women because we can. Because they can.

“The one who has knowledge uses words with restraint, and whoever has understanding is even-tempered.” Proverbs 17:27
