You Trust Her?
“I don’t trust women” are words I have heard women say on a number of occasions. What a sweeping announcement, one when stated is always done so with great certainty and boldness…and harshness! Although I find its sentiment ironic, I have never questioned the speaker. Why would I? Everyone is entitled to her opinion, right?
I, on the other hand, am happy to not have fallen into the mindset of (generally) not trusting women. Sure, there are some who have shown themselves to be untrustworthy. As the saying goes, “When someone shows you who they are, trust them.” To not trust all women, however, is extreme. If I accepted this notion as true, what would that say about me…to me?
When women trust each other, a bond is formed and great works are accomplished. History has proven this, but evidence also lives in our present-day era: in our communities, in our homes, in our workplaces, in our churches, etc.. Unfortunately, some girls are being taught that their greatest competition is that of another female. Interesting…in a male-dominated society, her greatest competition is her sister? (Hmmmmm.) This message plants seeds of mistrust which many times sprout into adulthood. Be careful of what you water. There is a difference between wheat and weed.
