Book Notes: Fight Like a Girl

Fighting with someone you love is no different than fighting with someone you dislike – both threaten your security in some way.

Whether it is a lover who is threatened by your strength, a co-worker who is threatened by your skills and your unique ability to get the other employees to assist on a project, your BFF, or a hater who just can’t stand that you exist on the same planet- it’s all the same fight.

And when ignoring is not enough and it comes time to fight, Harriet Rubin, author of The Princessa says it is okay to fight like a girl.

In fact, whenever anyone has been successful at winning a war or battle, such as Gandhi they’ve fought like a girl. Men can also fight like girls and when they do – they win.

And that goes for war you may be waging such as the one we most frequently find ourselves in when it comes to the people we love.

Just remember –

“People don’t want to be defeated, but they do want to be won, or won over” ~The Princessa.
