"Some of us walk around with a smile on our face but with tears in our hearts behind closed doors. I want you to know that you are greater than your circumstance. Stand UP “My Ladies” and know your worth. Stand up “My Ladies” and know who you are and whose you are. Stand UP and encourage one another and do not tear each other down."...

Sisterhood Encouragement 101 | shannonayersspeaks

  1. 1. Tags shannonayersspeaks~ What's Going On? SISTERHOOD ENCOURAGEMENT 101 10 Thursday APR 2014 POSTED BY SHANNON AYERS IN INSPIRATION ≈ 7 COMMENTS #Encouragement, #ShannonAyersSpeaks, #StandUpSistah, #StarManagementConsulting, #Women To Every Woman — Know Your Worth And Value! I encourage you this day to toss out the notion that: you are less because “He” dumped you or cheated on you or tells you your nothing you are less because “She” flaunts her body in front of you making you think that because you’re over weight you aren’t beautiful the texture or length of your hair makes you less attractive your skin color makes you less appealing your pedigree is less than Park Avenue or Lakeshore Drive because you came from the streets, projects, trailers, foster care or no formal education you are less than a woman because you had a mastectomy, hysterectomy, miscarriage or are infertile you are less because mama wasn’t there or daddy wasn’t there thinking you belong to no one you are not worth loving because “Friend girl” did not support you, talked about you, lied on you because “He” beats on you or verbally abuses you that you’re worthless that because your loved ones passed on that you’re alone because you’re not
  2. 2. Please know that God designed us as women and that he loves us unconditionally. We don’t all fit the mold of the ladies in the magazines or on tv. Some of us around “that time of the month” began to feel depressed and reflect on hurt and pain that has happened to us before or is happening right now. Or we look in the mirror and don’t like what we see and feel hopeless. Some of us walk around with a smile on our face but with tears in our hearts behind closed doors. I want you to know that you are greater than your circumstance. Stand UP “My Ladies” and know your worth. Stand up “My Ladies” and know who you are and whose you are. Stand UP and encourage one another and do not tear each other down. Why do I write this today, because in my own reflection of looking over the years from grade school until now, I just remembered the hurt and pain that I carried for years that I did not share. I remembered what it was like to have a smile on my face when I was truly hurting inside. I remembered what it was like to be cheated on, backbitten, talked about and belittled. There are still some today that want to see me fail to remedy their pain and misfortune. But when I look at my life now, I have a faithful, loving, handsome man of God who loves me like no other. I have four beautiful children that remind me everyday just how blessed I am. If you want to know how that should encourage you…I once was that little girl trapped in an adult body who thought she was worthless because of what others said or did. And now I know that I am worth the love I receive and those around me are worth the love I give. I don’t need a husband or children to know I am blessed. I am blessed because God ordained it to be so and I choose to step in it and receive it in Jesus’ Name. I dare you to Stand UP and love yourself enough to know your worth.
  3. 3. said: said: My Ladies, Stand UP and make your presence known that you are worthy to be loved and cherished. But it starts with you looking in the mirror and convincing that woman you see to…….STAND UP!!!!!! Blessings and Inspiration, Shannon Ayers Speaks thoughts on “SISTERHOOD ENCOURAGEMENT 101” 1. Annie Marie Peters April 12, 2014 at 1:51 pm Hi Shannon! What a wonderful article to read today. Last night, I went clothes shopping. I stood in the dressing room under those fluorescent lights privately hating myself because the clothes made me look fat. This is a feeling I’ve had my entire life. It’s so refreshing to hear this message of love and support from another woman at this very moment. Thank you for the inspiration! Like REPLY 2. Jessica Lauren L. Lambert April 12, 2014 at 8:47 am Women need to be more encouraging of other women. This is perpetuated through self worth and Like this
  4. 4. said: said: said: understanding of our own capabilities and accomplishments. We need to collectively bask in our sisters glory. It is a difficult world for women globally and those of us who can stand up, should. Like REPLY 3. Marilee April 11, 2014 at 6:41 pm It never ceases to amaze me the people who will rise up to steal your joy if you allow them. When I was a child I struggled through teasing and bullying. I felt less than worthless. I hated myself and I hated everyone else. I’ve learned that life is too short and too beautiful to let others steal my joy. My life is what I make it and the naysayers and bullies aren’t going to matter in the most important moments in my life. When it comes down to it, what matters most is the love and joy we’re holding onto when we meet our Maker. The rest is water under the bridge. Like REPLY Sara April 12, 2014 at 1:31 pm I am sorry that you were forced to endure others unkindness and insecurities. I have never been bullied but I have witnessed the harmful affects it leaves behind. With the invention of social media it is hard to not succumb to others judgments and harsh words. We put ourselves out there in order to be supported and lifted and you are right, many people rise to the challenge to tear us down. I am happy that you were able to not only find your joy but cultivate it. Like REPLY 4. Tauia D. April 11, 2014 at 4:22 pm Like this Like this Like this
  5. 5. said: said: I know one thing that helps me when I am feeling down, and that is forgetting myself and focusing on others. There is always someone out there who is more in need than myself. Serving them helps to lift my spirits, and usually theirs. It even in a weird way helps me to appreciate my own problems, and be greatful for my blessings. Like REPLY 5. Jodie April 11, 2014 at 4:19 pm When I was younger I struggled with feelings of self worth. I felt like a lot of young people feel. Not good enough. I compared myself to others, etc. I was given a poster by a church leader that had a drawing of a young girl and a caption that read “I know I’m special, cause’ God don’t make no junk!” I hung it on the wall and read it multiple times a day. Soon I began to really believe it and it became a part of me and my negative feelings pretty much went away. I know that I am a Child of God, and that knowledge has since made all the difference. I hope everyone can learn to love themselves and others the way that God does… Unconditionally. Like REPLY 6. Alicia Cowans April 11, 2014 at 8:53 am We as women definitely need to know who we are and whose we are. We as women need to stop watering one another down and encourage and compliment one another. I have had my share of not feeling so great about myself because of things that happened to me and the way people treated me. We all are different and we need to see the beauty and celebrate those attributes in one another. I am STANDING UP. Good article my sister, keep up the good work.
