Empowering Women

Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin

Society puts a lot of pressure on women. You have to look a certain way have a certain body type and even dress a certain way to conform to the norms of society.

However a strong woman knows that she doesn’t have to do any of this. She knows that her happiness is not derived from pleasing society but instead to have a level of confidence about whom she is as a person so she can be comfortable in her own skin.

Euthanasia

 

Euthanasia may sound like a nice word but it is really nothing more than a method by which thousands of elderly people are made to die each year by relatives who often think they are doing what is best for them.

How does euthanasia work you might ask. It is quite simple acutally and is widely accomodated in hospice care even though the practice is illegal in some states. Death by euthanasia in some cases means that the elderly person is deprived of food and water until his or her body shuts down and they die. Injections and drugs can also be used.

Ehthnasia is like a two edged sword on one hand it can relieve those who are terminally ill and suffering, from their pain and misery, on the other hand it can send those whose family members are tired of caring from them to an early grave. Do you think it justifiable to have an elderly relative who is still capable of eating and drinking and stave them to death. You thoughts are highly appreciated.

The First Lady

Michelle Obama is one of the most extraordinary women to have ever graced The White House. Her beauty, intellect, charisma, and gracefulness speaks much about her character. She reaches across class barriers and makes people feel at ease with her vibrant and welcoming personality. She exudes an aura of confidence and an understanding of her role as a woman with a voice and one who is never afraid to stand up for what she believes in. She is someone who we as women can emulate. She was like a breath of fresh air in The White House and many of us will miss her when she is gone.

Getting Respect

There is an old saying that the more things change the more they remain the same. Many women know this reality only too well. The abuse and disrespect of women have gone unchanged throughout the centuries dispte talks of ending abuse and protecting women.

It is time for self empowerment and for women to  recognize some of the signs that indicate you may be heading for disaster. An important element of any relationship is RESPECT. A man who respect his woman will not make her feel as if she is unimportant and unworthy of his love. If you start off the relationship feeling that you are not respected enough don’t waste your time and energy trying to make him respect you. It is a bad foot to start out on and a serious indication that it will not work out.

You cannot force a person to respect you but you can refuse to be disrespected. Empower youself with the knowledge that you derseve better and you will not settle for less.

2016 Presidential Election

The election campaign of 2016  has become more of a smear campaign than anything else. Some of the things I am seeing and hearing makes me wonder what people expect of a leader. I am still trying to wrap my head around the comments that Donald Trump has made in regards to women. I can’t wait or the election to be over and done with. On election day go out and vote wisely.
