Have you ever considered the idea of joining a circle of women? It’s not always easy being a woman. We struggle to do it all and be everything to everyone, and sometimes in that process we lose sight of ourselves and of our own needs. And while it’s fairly common for women to feel they are stressed, emotionally exhausted and mentally frustrated, it’s also common for women to just swallow those emotions, rather than working to find the support, inspiration and relief they need. It’s time to join a circle of women, and there are a lot of reasons why.
You’ll be Around People Who Will Listen
How many times have you thought “I need someone to talk to!”, “I need an advice!” but you felt there was no one to listen to you, to help you, to answer you or to brainstorm with. That’s exactly why you should join a circle group of women who want to hear what you have to say. And they’ll share their own feelings and thoughts as well, so you can all benefit from each other’s input and from whatever happens to be on your mind. There’s something so special, so rewarding and so important about knowing that you are being heard, and at its core, that’s what a circle is all about.
You Will Learn
We can learn so much from other people who have experienced and gained insight from their own encounters. Listen to each other and you will undoubtedly walk away from your circle with new ideas, new information and a new desire to keep learning more.
You Will Leave Feeling Empowered
Sometimes we feel stressed, or unmotivated about our life, our studies, our job, our family or our relationships, and sometimes we just need the help of others to give us a boost. Working together and feeling a sense of community with other women who have been through what you are feeling is just the ticket to feeling empowered and capable of greatness.
It’s a Reminder You Are Not Alone
You will meet someone else who has been in your shoes, who knows how you feel, or who wants to help. The best way to fight insecurity, negativity and life’s challenges is by tapping into the strength of community. When we come together we can do anything, and we know that not only are we not alone, but we are a part of a team. We have a support system of peers who know what we are going through, and could help us work through it, so we can come out stronger on the other side.
You will Lift Each Other Up
You will have a chance to surround yourself with positivity that results from women uplifting women. Exchanging ideas and taking turns leading creative exercises that challenge each other’s intellect in a positive way will bring out your best qualities, true self and brilliance.
You will Network with Other Women
It is a chance to connect with people who you may already know, and you will meet new people, and perhaps even meet people who you can work with professionally or spend time with socially.
You can be Totally Honest and Open About Your Goals
You can say what is on your mind and be totally truthful with yourself and others. A women’s circle is built on the concept of openness, acceptance and honestly. You can share your goals for the future, your fears, your dreams and talk about what is standing in your way.
You’ll Create a Change in Your Life
Sometimes we find it hard to take the plunge into unfamiliar territory and make a change, but a group of supportive, like-minded, and positive women might be just what you need to spark a transformation in your life. The circle is about helping peers and friends accomplish their personal, academic and professional goals. We can hold each other accountable for actually working towards our objectives.
