No sisterly love

Something my mother always mentioned to me was how sad it is that women do not compliment each other enough...
When I was really young I didnt understand that but as a woman I do. Its like you can tell a woman, " You look really nice, or your style is fab sis" and alot of times they kinda look like " is she trying to come on to me?" " is she serious?"...sad.
I read a post by BCU where she was referring to black womens low self esteem.. I completely agree with her, btw check out her blog, sister is on Point!!! :D

Personally, I like to receive compliments by women because I know how prideful some women are. You know the ones that know deep down you are well put together but will find something to judge about rather it is the shoes, purse or accessories lol. so with that said for a woman to go out her way to say u look nice Nik, I really appreciate it. Now brothers are always going to say you look nice even when you are not at your best because they have motive..u feel me? If I wanted to know if I was on point I would rather here it from a fellow woman than for a guy.

So no there is not enough sisterly love but it can only change with the sister we see when we look in the mirror.

true. it pisses me off that most black women are like this. we should try to build each other up instead of putting each other down.

Since reading this post, I've made it a daily practice to speak positivity into another black woman every day. I can't talk the talk and not walk the walk.
