Intimidation is the dirty little secret that A LOT of women struggle with and have a hard time admitting it to others.The main reason women suffer an unsettling feeling when around other women is because they don't feel comfortable in their our own skin.As a female, one of the most uncomfortable feelings is pressure or intimidation by other females.Even as young adults, women tend to flock together in cliques all with different personality traits and physical appearances.I've seen this pattern that goes on within the schools and even workplace. I get that participating in discussions is important but if you just ask the shy/quiet person what they think, they will answer. People think we're grumpy or rude but we're really not.
Whether someone is using their wealth, beauty, or authority to get you to do things or just to torment you it can make life very unpleasant. Here are my top 5 tips to stop feeling intimidation from other women: #1) Stop feeling like they have something you do not.Our body language makes up more than HALF of our communication! I have worked with hundreds of clients that struggled with this --they always feel judged, people avoid them, and/or don't include them in social activities.The way you carry yourself says a lot, which is why when you are angry, it's not as likely for a stranger to approach you and talk. If your energy and body language is communicating an annoyed, irritated or timid state, other women are going to treat you with the same demeanor.Free from the distractions that often come from being around people all day long, quiet people are able to accomplish a lot with their quiet focus.It is not uncommon to observe a quiet co-worker, alone in his or her office for hours at a time eschewing a quiet focus.
