I don’t know whether some women are naive or just plain foolish. I can never understand how a woman will cover up for or help a man to harm his wife and truly believe they can have a happy life together after. If he hurts her to be with you what make you think you are so special. Don’t you think he will hurt you too. What goes around have a way of coming back around. That is the law of nature.
One of the things plaguing society today is poor parenting. Too many children are growing up without role models they can emulate. The weakness of our men in regard to being responsible and showing moral and mental strength have resulted in many single parent homes where raising the children is left solely on the women. Yes we have weak women too because we have single parent homes with fathers playing both roles. However overall the number of single female households way outnumber the men. This is a clear indication that as parents our women are way stronger than our men.
Too many men seem to suffer from the Georgie Porgie syndrome. It is all sweet and dandy in the relationship until a child come into the picture then like scared little boys they run away. Weak people are always seeking the easy way out of a situation and for many men and some women turning their backs on their responsibilities is the easy way.
Every child needs at least one strong parent. So if you are that strong parent in your child or children’s life be proud and do your best to raise them right. For all you struggling single mothers, stay strong. At times it will get rough but hold on. Children grow up and someday you will look back with pride on a job well done. To all the weak men who are still running, grow up, be a man. A strong man or woman never turn their backs on their children. Only the weak ones do.
If only we as humans could find it in our heart to look past class and race and see each other as human beings. God made us all equal but mankind have divided us into groups and have created social status because although we are one some want feel more superior. My question is, in the final judgment will there be two heavens one for the ruling class and one for minorities. Will God look on us and select us based on the color of our skin. We all need to look inward to the man in the mirror and change our ways.
One important aspect of a relationship is understanding that the other person’s happiness matters. When partners are selfish and care only about his or her happiness the relationship is bound to fail. The ones that make it are the ones where couples care about each other’s feelings.
In many relationship a woman who is not being treated right may keep silent. It is not because she isn’t aware that things aren’t going the way she would like them to. She stays silent in order to keep the peace.
While it is good to be silent at times, silence should never become a way of life. By remaining silent a woman gradually loses her voice. Her authority becomes diminished and over time she may lose confidence in herself and in her ability to make the right decisions for her life.
In a relationship each person matters. Do not suffer in silence. Find your voice and speak your truth. Your voice matters.
There is a new revolution, the silence has been broken, women are speaking out. Our voices are powerful. Already we are seeing results.
Let us do the same for domestic violence. End the silence, speak up. Don’t protect the image of your abuser; protect your life. Expose abusers, stand up and fight.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Let’s get the conversation going.
An Open Letter to Men
From Women Against Domestic Violence
It is with tears in our eyes and fear for our lives that we pen this note to you. Domestic violence has taken the lives of many of our sisters leaving many of our homes broken and our children motherless.
Men we need you to understand that we are not the enemy so stop treating us like one. We give to you our love, our passion, our understanding and compassion, we trust you with our lives and all we ask is that you reciprocate and treat us right. Don’t see our love for you as a weakness, don’t leave us with cuts and bruises, don’t crush out our joy and leave us broken.
Men you need to understand that love is not supposed to hurt. If your love is causing your woman hurt then it means that you are doing something wrong. Any boy can hurt a woman but it takes a man to make her happy. So the next time you raise your hand to hit a woman stop and ask yourself am I a boy or am I a man. Treat women with love and respect….Be A Man!
