Over the last couple of days, several girls on social media have been following a certain ‘trend’. It goes something like this. You have to upload a picture of yourself and type a big paragraph about how you stand for uplifting women. The information goes vaguely like, “Too often women criticize each other instead of building each other up. Be a part of uplifting other women. Let’s do something positive today. Upload a picture of yourself along with this caption and nominate your friends to do it as well”
I mean….Tell me I’m not the only person who thinks this is lame. No offense to all the girls who’ve entertained this. But, really! We all know that you spent almost an hour searching or clicking that gram-worthy picture, copy-pasted that entire info and hit post.
Personally, I just think that with all the stuff that’s been going around and people being ‘quarantined’ at their homes with their laptops and mobiles, having nothing to do, this was started by some dead bored girl who just needed an excuse to post her picture. (To seek validation)
All said, sorry if I’ve offended anyone. I strongly stand for women supporting and encouraging each other. But the real change comes from actions. Not through some lame IG stories. So, let’s each take a step towards empowering each other. Start complimenting other women. Stand up for each other. Because, there is nothing stronger than a team of powerful and confident women! Instead of being jealous or impolite, let’s practice more appreciation and admiration. Be Bossy. Be Brave. Most importantly, have a Voice!
“Do what is right, not what is popular”
On a lighter note, if you really want to spread good vibes during these tough times, try suggesting some good movies or shows for people to watch in these times of boredom and crisis. Many would appreciate it. RESPECT!
