I feel like every post I’ve made lately has had something to do with Lilly Singh. Even the other day when I posted about Humble the Poet; I discovered Lilly through Humble. I can’t help it though. Over the past year or so, Lilly has become one of my
biggest inspirations and lately, I’ve been obsessed with her… Ok well that sounded creepier than I intended. I’ve been extra inspired by her.
Lilly created a movement called Girl Love, which I think is incredible. I was inspired to talk about the concept of Girl Love because the other day, I was scrolling through Instagram and saw that YouTuber Adelaine Morin also released a line of merch with the concept of Girls Supporting Girls. I love it! I love it! I love it!
Girl Love and Girls Supporting Girls are essentially what they sound like and this is so important because we live in a world where jealousy and hate are so prominent, especially between girls. You lose nothing by supporting someone else and I’ll be the first to admit that it took me a while to learn this. Like, almost 25 years.
I’m not a regular viewer of Adelaine (although I probably should be because she is so wonderful and positive and the world needs more people like her), but I definitely plan on buying something from her Girls Supporting Girls line (I have my eye on the iPhone case) because I support Adelaine. I have a design in my shop also that says “Support Your Friends” based on a similar concept. I will link my shirt as well as Lilly’s and Adelaine’s because I support those girls! I encourage you to check out not only their merch, but who they are as influential women.

I have absolutely beautiful, supportive friends who are the epitome of Girl Love and Girls Supporting Girls and it makes me sad to think that there are girls out there who don’t have a support system like that. Even earlier today when I walked into work, one of my work friends told me she thought I looked pretty today and was giving off really good vibes today and it brightened my entire day! I love the positivity within my friend group. Support your friends whether you are showing support for something specific they are doing or have going on in their lives or just telling them you are grateful to have them in your life. Support strangers. Support acquaintances. You lose nothing by choosing kindness over hatred.
