The Other Woman
Do you believe that shows like “Being Mary Jane” and “Scandal” are teaching women that it’s okay to be the other woman? We have two prolific, intelligent and amazing women on these shows who seem to settle for sharing a man.
Are you secretly rooting for them?
Does the other woman win or lose out?
Here’s a line from Mary Jane:
“I’ve found that being number 2 gives you all the glory of being near the top without all the pressures of the number one spot.
The job of any great number 2 is to figure out what the number 1 is missing. What they refuse to see and what they’re doing wrong. So take your time, learn, be patient, get better.
You will get where you’re supposed to be if you do the work. Remember, if you don’t, somebody else will.”
Well there you have it. Are you or have you ever been the other woman? Could you ever be “the other woman?” What are your thoughts? Voice them below:
