Courage is not a feel-good emotion, but rather a steeling of backbone; going against feelings of insecurity, hurt, revenge, embarrassment, unrestrained ambition, to bring about what we know is appropriate. Courage is not the absence of difficulty, discomfort and fear but rather present with much blood, sweat and tears. But women – we are a couragfeous breed!
Let us be courageous and uphold the value of womanhood – and let us begin today; to recover, cultivate and improve the various associations and relationships we have with the women we work and live alongside. In the words of Anne Frank, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
She’s not your competition – she is another woman, a part of womanhood. Value her.
