For Storytelling Thursday, I'm sharing a post from Huffington Post's Anya Strzemien. Anya is tired of hearing her friends - her women friends - talk badly about their looks. In her article, she talks specifically about looks but we women also talk badly about our cooking, "I can never make this casserole taste as good as my sister can", our talents, "I can't draw - or sew - or write - or sing as well as (insert name here)." our housework - you name it. It gets wearing to have to reassure us. It really does.
Maybe we do it to be complimentary to the other person. And, maybe, we're all lying and we actually believe that we're awesome. Well, Anya wants you to tell her why you think you're awesome and for every comment, she'll give $1 to Girls, Inc.
So, visit Anya's article and tell her why you like the way you look. Tell a different story about yourself and change the world's perception of YOU. I did.
