Our Struggle for Sisterhood

February 26, 2012

“Angela D. Coleman, president and founder of the Sisterhood Agenda (, agrees that our struggle to love ourselves is at the crux of our issues with one another.   ‘At the core of being able to be a sister, of being someone who can be relied upon for unconditional love and support, is being able to love yourself,’ she says. ‘Intrinsic to sisterhood is self-love, self-esteem, and understanding and accepting who you are.”

    The quote is so true. Ever noticed how the people in our lives who suppress themselves are the quickest to try to get us to dim our own lights? That is why the freedom of one sister boosts the rest of us. The beauty of one sister boosts the rest of us. It makes us each more encouraged and free to pursue the gifts she has. When we act on this knowledge by supporting each other’s victories and refusing to be entertained by each other’s downfalls, we make strides toward the strengthening of us all.

      That is very true, It is a full time occupation to love yourself as a woman in each and every way that you see fit, and once you begin the journey of self love the face of the earth changes indeed! One love*~*

    You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation however I find this matter to be actually one
    thing which I feel I would never understand. It kind of feels too complex and
    very extensive for me. I am taking a look forward to your next
    put up, I will try to get the hang of it!
