We’ve all been the victims of the limited imaginations of other people. Whether it was a teacher who didn’t expect much of you, a friend who laughed at your dreams, or anyone else who failed to take you seriously. However, we’ve also had people who cheered us on, picked us up when we were down, and encouraged us to keep going. It’s important to always try to be that person for the women around you.
Women are often clumped together by society and labeled with characteristics, jobs, and hobbies that are deemed acceptable for us to have. The reality is that we’re all extremely different in the best ways. We all come from different places and backgrounds, and we all have different things we’re good at and passionate about. The key is to always check yourself and make sure you’re supporting women who have goals that may not match your own. You don’t have to understand exactly what they’re doing if you’re not interested in it, but you should definitely support it.
