Sharing Brings Growth

Who really are these women? What do they each represent? Will they judge me for the life I lead? Will they criticize me for the opinions I express? Do I fit in? Will they like me?

When you first join a women’s group, it’s both exciting and a bit scary. You may be hesitant to participate at first and certainly will wonder about the other members in the group. This kind of concern might prevent you from making the most of your women’s group experience. Not to worry – you’ll get the hang of it soon.

The Essence of a Women’s Group is Trust

Trust – Firm reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, or character of a person or thing.

In a successful women’s group, the members must all trust each other enough to be able to open up and share their experiences freely. As we know, without sharing there will not be growth. But how can women in a diverse group learn to trust each other? How long before they can open up honestly?

The secret to building a trusting relationship is to start small. Begin with small acts and gestures of trust and build it up from there. It will take awhile, but there will come a time when the members of your group will not hesitate to open up to one another.
