From A Man’s Perspective
Recently I came across a Facebook video of a man sharing his views about the growing nudity displayed by women. He voiced his concern that woman are not taking pride in themselves any more and seem to think they have to walk around half-naked to catch the eyes of a man. He warns that they will attract attention but from the wrong men and that they should take more pride in themselves because a man can spot a good woman from a distance even if she is fully clothed.
I am noticing this growing trend of women wearing less and less and I feel sad that women feel they have to go to this level in order to feel attractive. Women please be reminded that respect begins with you.
It’s okay to be different. It is okay to be that girl, or woman who wants to create her own path and make her own rules. It is okay to have a voice. It is okay to reach for the stars and to climb on mountains. It is okay to not want to settle for mediocrity. It is okay to cut ties with those who stifle your growth and add nothing of value to your life. It’s ok for you to be you!
We need to create a society where a woman is not afraid to use her voice. Too often women keep quiet about sexual abuse because they fear no one will believe them. Sexual abuse against women and girls should not be accepted as a way of life. Men must take responsibility for their actions. Respect women. No means no!
People often view you in the manner in which you portray yourself. If you portray yourself as someone who does not love or respect him or herself and show signs of low self-esteem this is how the world will look upon you. It you don’t believe that you are important others won’t either and they will treat you accordingly. How people treat you is sometimes a reflection of how our portray yourself. Always take pride in yourself and put your best foot forward.
Every woman has the ability to experience personal growth and development. This first step begins with you adopting a positive attitude towards life. You must have a fervent desire to rise above any problem or circumstances that may be holding you back. Be aware of your environment and social connections. If your circle of friends are negative, unproductive people who add nothing to your growth, you need to change them.
Set achievable goals for your life and devise a plan on how you are going to reach those goals. Make a chart of the things you hope to achieve and set a time frame. Push yourself to achieve your daily or weekly goals. Be in touch with your spiritual side. It is always a good thing to believe in a higher power to sustain you and lift you up. Find something that motivates you and give you hope. Knowledge is very important so read widely on topics that interest you. Read to increase your intelligence or simply for recreation. You will be surprised at how much you can learn from making a habit of reading. Above all as you going through each day have a strong belief in self and your ability to be successful.
There is the need for greater support for women and girls who become victims of human trafficking. More need to be done to eradicate sex trafficking and sex slavery of our women and girls. There is the need for greater awareness. If you suspect that a woman or girl is at risk say something. These vulnerable women and girls must be protected.
People who engage in acts of sex trafficking and holding women as sex slaves should face harsh punishment. We must protect or girls and women and give them a voice. If you suspect that someone is the victim of human trafficking call the Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888
