As a female, I know one of the most uncomfortable feelings is pressure or intimidation by other females. Even as young women, we tend to flock together in cliques all with different personality traits and physical appearances. We have naturally friendly and empathetic natures, but sometimes we feel overwhelmed by the confidence and behaviors of others. This worry and paranoia of what the other woman is thinking can cause lifelong problems such as stress and social anxiety.

The most common coincidence is when a woman feels like she is being intimidated, but in reality she is the one giving off the distressing vibes. Most women do not know that they are being threatening with their body language or facial expressions. The way you carry yourself says a lot, which is why when you are upset or angry it is not as likely for someone to approach you and/or want to talk to you. Same goes for intimidation, if your persona is communicating an annoyed or irritated state other women are going to treat you with the same demeanor.

Intentionally intimidating others is a form of emotional abuse. Whether someone is using their wealth, beauty, or power to get you to do things or just to torment you it can make life unpleasant. It is unhealthy no matter how you look at it.

Here’s a few tips to help you get past the pressure of intimidation from others and help to stop intimidation from other women:

  • First of all, the only way to completely stop intimidation is to ignore it. If you do not pay attention to the elephant in the room it won’t be so obvious.
  • Learn how to get comfortable in your own skin. The main reason we suffer an unsettling feeling when around other women is because we do not feel comfortable in our own skin. We know how often females gossip and talk trash about other people specifically other females, so our first instinct is to automatically judge our own appearance. This is the worst thing you can do!!
  • The very best thing you can do is to learn how to have conversations with intimating or overbearing women. Then get into the habit of approaching the ladies that you feel intimidated and uncomfortable around and realize that, after talking with them you are the one likely intimidating yourself.
  • Thinking limiting and self-critical thoughts like: “I am not pretty enough”, or “I’m not as successful”, and “I’m not as well-liked or popular as her” is extremely detrimental to you building your self-esteem and self-confidence. The main way to stop your feeling of intimidation from other females is to stop feeling like they have something you do not. As long as you feel confident and beautiful, no one can make you feel less of a person.

    There is one female manager where I work, where people have described her as been afraid of her own shadow and if she worked on a team with strong personalities she’d be bullied. Sadly I have seen her been bullied. One chap told me to watch how a girl that reported to this manager spoke to her and intimidated her. When I started doing this I began to notice how afraid the manager was of this lady. The lady was a lot bigger and physcially stronger which I think also intimidated the much smaller frail manager. The lady would talk down to her in meetings. Once she was late in for work and contacted one of the guys she worked with and not the manager. The manager just laughed it off when the girl came in, it was a very nervious laugh and you can tell she was scared. Later that evening the manager went for a meeting with that girl.
    Another time I sent an email about a process another department wanted us to carry out, i sent an email to the team. That girl and another said they weren’t doing it by email. The manager was out and I was looking forward to her response, as I felt she was afraid of them both. The next day she emailed to say she’d speak with the dept head, therefore avoiding any confrontation. Another 2 female managers she was afraid of, i remember I had an issue how these teams were doing things and she said we’d monitor it, she didn’t want to go to the team managers, eventually it continued to happen, she then went to other people on each teams and not the managers, to me it was fear. Once i was beside her and we got talking about work and she said that she was tired of unhelpful people. Turns out one female manager wasn’t helping her with a task. I felt sorry for her as i had seen this manager pile work on to this lady and she’d always do it, yet on this occasion she could easiy dismiss her. To see someone suffering such intimidation is shocking. Women have taken advantage of her via intimidation and bullying whereas they should be helping her.
