Yesterday during Group Therapy, we read a text from a Rock-A-Holic named Nancy.
The Group Therapy before that was from a woman named Brit who lied to her ex boyfriend about getting pregnant and having a miscarriage just to get him back.
Nancy decided to text in after hearing this because she was in the opposite situation and needed help.
Nancy hasn’t told her on-again-off-again boyfriend of 10 years that she had a miscarriage because she didn’t want his sympathy.
Now that they are back together and are planning marriage, her friends keep telling her that she should tell him.
When I read Brit’s email I was very angry that she would lie and do such a horrible thing and we all agreed it would be best not to tell the guy since it would only hurt him more. When I read Nancy’s text, I had a different response because it seems like Nancy is more responsible than Brit.
Brit and Nancy were both going through pain but Brit decided to lie and hurt someone else while Brit decided to something that wasn’t selfish.
These two stories only proves that all women need a counsel of other women to help them when they have big problems. Sadly it seems like a lot of women don’t have that sisterhood. We need strong, intelligent women leading the younger generation of women so issues like Brit’s and Nancy’s won’t occur as frequently.
