Cupid’s Advice:¬†

We’re inspired by the drive these girls have, and the willingness to do anything for their family, no matter what. These girls know that even though they are being treated unfairly, they are true girl bosses and will do whatever it takes to fix that because they know what they deserve. Here is some of Cupid’s advice on how to stand up for yourself in the face of adversity:

1. Practice being transparent and authentic: This can definitely be hard at first, but the more you practice being open and honest with people in your life, the more you won’t have to deal with carrying a constant weight on your shoulders. Tell these people how you feel, and no one will be able to tell you otherwise!

2. Clarify first, without attacking: Figure out what the root of the problem is. You are aware of your viewpoint, but take a moment to listen to the other side. Are you truly in the right or wrong? By clarifying what you mean and listening to the opposing side, you can start a real discussion and get to the solution quicker.

3. Recognize that no one can invalidate you: You are the sole owner of your feelings and emotions. No one can tell you how to feel, what to feel, or invalidate your opinions. Have an open discussion with your peers, so they know their opinions are valid, and vice versa.
