Have you ever heard the phrase “it’s hard to make friends with women”? We are programmed with years of mean girls, and Mean Girls, and self doubts and criticisms and begin to assume other women aren’t sincere or have ulterior motives. It’s a vicious cycle of self doubt closing us off from each other. What is THAT all about?
I know what you may be thinking – we all long for the day our precious little nugget looks up at us with adoring eyes and says their first word, and yes, we pretend to be ok with it when that first word is “Dada” (because after-all they’re REALLY just making sounds, not saying words or naming their favorite parent…right?!). But I’m not talking about first words.
