Sistas Let’s Stop Hatin’ On Each Other…

Unknown Author
Ok…so I walk in and you see me.
You see that my hair is done, my
outfit is fierce and I carry myself like a lady.
I smile at you but you roll your eyes
at me, then, turn your head and whisper something to your girl.
Why you hatin’?
Ok… so maybe I’m a new employee and
this is my first day at work.
I almost thought I would be the only
sista in the jointuntil someone introduced us to each other.
I smile and extend my hand, happy to
know I won’t be here alone.
You smile and shake my hand but
there’s insincerity in your eyes and your hand is limp. You seem guarded.
What’s wrong Ma’?
Ok …so maybe my man and I have been
having problems.
And since you’ve been my best friend
for years I confide in you that I think he’s cheating on me.
You offer your support.
Until I find
out that he’s been cheating on me….with you!
Why would you hurt me like that?
I found your
knife, girl….. it’s in my back!
As women we battle daily.
We battle keeping our families
together, keeping our men happy and maintaining our presence in the workforce.
With all that battling going on why
in the world should we have to battle each other?
Now I’m not
saying every sistah has a knife…but some of you do….
and you know who you are.
Why is it that a woman can’t get her
glamour on without you having a problem?
Why can’t I get a blonde weave
without you having something to say?
If I’m working myself to death in the
trying to
climb the corporate ladder…why am I suddenly a sellout?
If I leave the room for a minute why
can’t I trust you around my man?
Smiling in my face, but gossiping all
my personal business behind my back?
You now have permission to consider
yourself triflin’!
Inferiority Complex.
It makes us feel that in order to be
someone special we have to put everyone else beneath us.
Are we so insecure in ourselves that
we can’t feel good until we pull someone else down?
There’s something wrong here.
We’ve come to envy those who’ve
accomplished in their lives what we’ve only dreamed of having for ourselves.
And when we
fear we will never be able to get what we want 
–  we steal it.
There is a serious self-worth issue
going on here.
We’re in a day and age where we
should be encouraging each other and holding each other up.
Sisterhood should not end when Oprah
goes off.
Truth be told, there will always be
someone prettier, sexier, stronger, and smarter.
I’m sorry Boo – that’s just the way
it is.
But that’s
ok…..just do you!
I don’t care how good Beyonce’ looks
– if she walks into the same room I’m in, it doesn’t make me any less of the
diva I already am!
I love admiring hairstyles…but
there’s no need to be jealous.
Honey, nowadays there’s enough hair
for err-body.
I have goals in life.
There are things I strive to attain.
Yet I seek out successful sisters
because they keep me motivated.
Life is so much more than who looks
the best, who dresses the best and who makes more money.
So when you see your sister going for
hers let it inspire you ….

To do you.
