Women, let's cut the criticism.

Dear Women,

I have to ask you some questions.
 Why do we constantly tear each other down instead of building each other up?
Why do we get upset when another women achieves something & instead of praising them we tear them down?
Why is it such a big deal to you that I choose to not go to college & you criticize me and tell me I'm ruining my future?
Why do we constantly give unwanted advice to new moms who are already terrified & yet overjoyed with a newborn?
Why do we make fun of unmarried women?
Why do we laugh at each other's beauty instead of embracing our differences?
Why are we tearing each other down instead of empowering each other?
Why do we pick ourselves apart so much that in return we choose to tear other women down?

I have come across a few articles and blogs talking about a few of these questions.
I'm frustrated. 
I am tired of having to feel like I have to prove my self worth to the world.
My worth & value is found in Jesus.
However, in a world full of women who decide to judge and gossip about one another it can be hard to remember where your worth is from.
Instead of just communicating & being honest with each other we would rather smile & fake it and then tear each other down behind each other's backs.

I have and am choosing change.
I am focused on not gossiping about others, about only speaking kindness or my words in love.
I want to inspire & empower other women in their journey.
I want to choose to toss aside the negative & focus and spread positivity.

I want to challenge you to do the same. 
None of us want to feel put down, judged, or criticized.
In all seriousness, spread the love today.
Deep down we all need it.

Love Forever,
Chel Chel
