International Women's Day has me feeling a lot of feels.
I've struggled with having close friendships with women my whole life. A lot of them have ended because of jealousy or just not wanting to support one another. I told myself for years that I'd rather be friends with men because women were "drama". This of course is a terrible outlook to have. Thankfully I do have some pretty fantastic women in my life that I'm pretty lucky to call my friends, but I still struggle to lift other women up at times. It's something I'm constantly working on because I know it's better to celebrate and support women. We're stronger together.
So if you're a woman who is working everyday, kicking ass, punching through glass ceilings, taking care of others, and trying to take care of yourself, please know that I'm proud of you. You inspire me to try harder, to push myself more, and to never give up. I hope you can take some time for yourself today to just relax, because you honestly deserve it more than you know.
