“If I could sum up why I’m committed to the HR Girlfriends community it would come down to because we are ‘….in this together.'”

~Sana’ Rasul, Chief Girlfriend

Affirmation: Building up others strengthens me.

I grow stronger when I help others. The compassion and encouragement I give away comes back to me many times over.

I look for ways to help others feel good about themselves. I pay attention so I can spot their hidden talents and discover their potential. I affirm their worth.

I cheer others on and celebrate their victories. I am happy to hear about my neighbor winning a lottery. I congratulate a colleague who receives an award for their performance.

I offer positive feedback and sincere praise. I let my best friend know that she looks healthier since she started her new workout program.

I build trust. When I delegate a task to an intern at work, I hand over the responsibility and applaud their success.

I stand by others when they are trying to deal with their mishaps. I validate their feelings and experiences. I provide a sounding board as they work out alternative approaches. I admire them for persevering.

My life becomes more rewarding when I nurture my family, friends, and coworkers. Even a kind gesture to a stranger brightens my own day.

Today, I use my words and actions to encourage and uplift those around me. I choose to build them up rather than push them down. The more I build up others, the more my own strength, joy, and confidence grow.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Why is it important for me to build others up?
2. What are my personal strengths when it comes to building up others?
3. How do I feel when I lift someone up?
