The Importance of Having a Sisterhood
A Sisterhood is defined as the state of being a sister and being involved with a strong community who are bound together by shared experiences or interests. To each person, Sisterhood may mean something different, however, as a whole it encapsulates an unconditional alliance between like-minded individuals who empower and lift one another. We at Secret Sisterhood aim to strengthen this bond and encourage each other to become part of an everlasting community. This blog post details four reasons why having a Sisterhood is important to grow and inspire.
- A Sisterhood creates a sense of community
Living in a male-dominated world, women need to band together and create a strong community. A Sisterhood can create strong connections that last forever, whilst also bringing a sense of belonging to people who might feel isolated and alone. Having a sense of belonging is so important to all women and girls, and the acceptance from the group can help individuals show acceptance and growth within themselves.
2. A Sisterhood empowers and inspires
A Sisterhood can help people become the best they can be by pushing them to grow and develop in all aspects of life. Through personal struggles and feelings of defeat, a Sisterhood can help encourage one another to achieve things that individuals might not have thought possible. Achievements, no matter how big or small, can help to inspire a Sisterhood collectively, and with the support of a powerful group who have each other’s best interests at heart, it can help to build confidence to reach new heights together.
3. A Sisterhood strengthens your wellbeing
A Sisterhood can help personal wellbeing through female connections that have been scientifically supported to help individuals thrive. Studies have shown that female connections and friendships are likely to decrease one’s stress levels which can ultimately help improve mental health. Another study demonstrated that the number of friends that a woman had was associated with the number of impairments that occurred later in life, as well as impacting the quality of life of an individual. Having a strong Sisterhood can help improve a woman’s life through the strong emotional bonds that are formed.
4. A Sisterhood’s love is unconditional and lasts forever
Finally, as more than just a friendship, a Sisterhood implies that the bond between them is forever and unconditional through all phases of life. A true Sisterhood not only celebrates the happy times but also supports and comforts during tough times. No matter what, a Sister is always there for you.
This is why we are so passionate at spreading our message of Secret Sisterhood far and wide. We want as many women as possible to feel a part of a Sisterhood community.
