In the studio with Angie Austin and friends, I’m surrounded by very opinionated, strong women. This week on air, we jumped right into controversial waters, discussing the recent Women’s March on Washington.
The women protesting are passionate about what they stand for. But more than the the march itself, what breaks my heart is that women are divided. A line drawn in the sand, and if you don’t cross over, you’re despised, spit on, and unaccepted. How did we become so one-sided?
It’s a privilege to live in a America where we can voice our opinions and stand for what we believe in. But relationships are more important than issues. Aren’t they?
What if we loved women as they are, right where they are? Aborting our right—the need to be right—and birthing love?
Freedom comes when we are united, not divided.
Share you beliefs with fellow women, but don’t let opinions kill relationships.
Be open to receive.
Terminate the need to be right.
Find a way to quit complaining, disagreeing, and seek solutions together.
Our diversities can be expressed without hate. There will always be issues we don’t agree on. People are more important than positions.
Our differences should teach and strengthen one another.
Let’s become one strong voice for each other.
We are stronger together.
