You’ve seen the memes.
You’ve seen your girlfriends boasting about their RBF.
But, what even is RBF, you might ask?
RBF is an acronym for Resting B**** Face.
Oh, how lovely, right?
Don’t get me wrong, there are some women that OWN this and are PROUD of it. But, what if we spun it for a minute? What about the women that are always smiling and always friendly and approachable… what about them? Where’s their acronym to wear and share like it’s some kind of prize?
Ladies, let’s be honest here… do you REALLY want to be labeled in such a negative light?
Let’s go back to when you met your spouse or significant other… Is this how you greeted them, with RBF? What about when we walk into a staff or board meeting? “Oh, hey everyone, RBF here.” Or how about when we visit our grandparents in the hospital on their deathbeds? RBF then too? Meet the Teacher night? “Hello, Mrs. Barnes, I’m so excited for 3rd grade! This is my mom, RBF.”
Well, FIX YOUR FACE THEN.
There’s nothing attractive or becoming when your facial expression speaks before you do.
Clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
