    I really really enjoyed this post and I can relate to it so much! I was very judgemental and as a teenager I had this whole “I’m not like other girls” mentality which is so damaging. Now I’ve grown up I still have the odd judgemental thought but when I catch myself out it really makes me think about the rooted cause for that thought, which is usually my own insecurities.

    I love this post Vix, It’s so true! Internalised misogyny runs so deep, sometimes I don’t even feel myself thinking these thoughts until I do.
    It’s so drilled into our mentality and it just makes me so so sad. It’s a learning curve, cutting out the misogynist bullshit, but I’m slowly learning to do so, and it’s such an empowering feeling.

    Brilliant post, Vix. And sound advice that I will try my best to follow. Although, whether I can completely block the bitch that lives in my head from coming out with a snide comment every now and then will remain to be seen but I shall certainly endeavour to.

    Someone once told me that the first thought that creeps into your head about other people(/women) is what society has conditioned you to think. Your second thought is your own.

    At some point in my late 20s, I (like you) started shifting away from the judgement, started actually trying to build people up, not tear them down. I’d get that thought of “oh shiiiiiiiit what is she wearing?!” and consciously revert to “none of my business/wish I could wear that/she lookin’ good”

    This is still an effort at times. The judgement thought still pops up. But I personally feel that the conscious effort afterwards is what matters. I’m actively trying to change. Because the young me just makes me cringe.

    Love this. Especially the part where women shouldn’t bring other women down, i think its so important to fight against this as well as all the other issues you brought up. Inspiring post! x

    I absolutely love this Vix, I’m a great believer in good karma and actually if you’re lovely to others, you’ll more often than not only get kindness in return! Both men and women deserve respect, so actually even sometimes thinking negative thoughts about another woman can be destructive! Alice xxx
