    I LOVE this!! Such a great post for today. All women are fabulous within their own right, but that does not make you any less or more than the other women in the world. Your posts just get better ???? So refreshing to read!

    Oh yes. Any compliment that starts or ends in a comparison to someone other than me, is not a compliment. The only person I want to be compared to, is me. The old me. What’s funny is that people think that “You’re not like other girls,” or “Unlike like so and so you actually do this better” are actual compliments and are suppose to make me feel better about myself. I’m not going to lie, in the past they did because I was brought up to see other women as competition and if I’m better at something that they aren’t so good at, then I’m someone special. But now I see how negative that mindset is. Compliment me without bringing anyone else in the mix.

    I love that you shared this message, especially on International Women’s Day!

    I was told that I was different too when I was young. I was naughty, tanned from all the outdoor sports I did and I hated Barbies and dolls with a passion – I preferred playing with cars and trains and lizards. Nowadays, they were definitely compliments when I think about them! 😉

    Preach! The worst is when you get the ‘you are not nagging/psycho as other girls’. Well dude, maybe you are the problem?

    Great post, Vix, and so true. I have never said to a man, “you’re not like other men, you don’t complain when I drunkenly cry watching Youtube videos of dogs being rehomed”.

    Well said, Vix. I was the same when I was younger- I used to love being told I wasn’t like other girls! Nowadays I see it as men giving validation I never asked for so I generally think it’s stupid and a bit sad that they are still so misinformed to think that we need their opinion in this day and age. Completely pointless and irrelevant, to be blunt about it!

    YES TO THIS. I was always told I was not like other girls, or even that I was like a boy (sometimes as a compliment and sometimes not) but it is time to stop that noise.

    Yes!!!

    I’ve grown up under this label and I hate that as women we are constantly compared to one another … Yes as a child I would rather play around with cars than dolls, but as an adult I can now look after and maintain my own car. As a teenager I would rather kick a ball against the house than sit inside playing around with makeup and as an adult I would still rather be outdoors than stuck inside.

    Yes all of these things made me ‘different’ but they have made me who I am today and I wouldn’t change a thing.
