RELATIONSHIPS

Does his Family Dislike You

You are dating him not his family so their opinion of you shouldn’t matter right?  Not quite, sometimes his family’s reaction to you can have an influence on the relationship. When you are up against his relatives who don’t like you  and do not approve of your relationship it can make it more difficult for things to work out with him.

The man may love you but may not like being in a situation where he has to choose between you and his family. If you find yourself in this situation tread carefully. It is going to take a lot of work from the both of you to reach a common ground with his family and make the relationship work.

You are Not His Property

We are living in the twenty-first century but what progress as people can we say we have made when men are keeping women enslaved. This is not about race, color or class. Women from every area of society have at one point or another found themselves subjected to abuse from men. Age is of little relevance, as long as you are a woman you are at risk.

In spite of human rights laws and legislation little girls mere children themselves are married off to grown men, sentenced to a life of hard labor and abuse with no hope of an education. In some instances once married the woman becomes the property of the man. She has no voice, she has no say. He is her lord and master and his every command she must obey. As his property he happiness is not important. Her job is to make him happy and take care of his every need.

It is time for women to stop accepting less than they deserve. In some abusive relationship when ask why they stay a woman may respond “I love him.” You may love the man but while you are busy loving him who is loving you? In reality a woman does not need a man anymore than he needs her. You may feel hurt, disappointed, betrayed and lonely but at the end of the day you are alive and life goes on.

Sometimes, somewhere out there something good is waiting for you but if you remain trapped in an unhappy relationship you will never experience it. Don’t be like a welcome mat and allow him to walk all over you. The change will come only when women begin to stand up for themselves and say enough is enough.

 

Stop Abuse of Women

Stop Abuse of Women

Let us cease women to be subdued or allow ourselves to be boxed in by a wall of silence.  Let our voices be heard.  Let the stories of rape and other atrocities against be told.  Throughout the world women are being abused.  The disparity in the treatment of the sexes is real.  The heinous crimes of rapes, murders and other forms of abuse meted out to women are real.  The killing of babies because they are girls is real.

In the beginning God created woman as a companion for man.  He did this because He thought man was lonely and needed another human like himself to relate to.  I am quite sure it was intended that man would take good care of that woman.  The heart of some men seem to be desperately wicked.  They have no concept of what it is like to care for a woman.  They are emotionally barren, devoid of the ability to love her unconditionally.

It is from the womb of a woman that new life enters this world.  For nine months she carries a child in her womb, going through morning sickness and all the other things that comes with pregnancy.  All she hopes for is a healthy child whether it be male or female.  She does not hate her child because he happens to be a male.  Her love is unconditional.  She goes through labor and suffers excruciating pain to bring this child into the world.  She spends many a sleepless night caring for her child, putting his or her needs before her own.  At the end of it all how is she repaid?

Cursed is the man who lays his hand on a woman except to show his affection.  Cursed is the man who inflicts pain on a woman.  Cursed is the man who rapes a woman, violating the very place from where he made his entrance into this world.  Shame unto the man who has no understanding that without a woman there would be no man because it takes both to reproduce.  Men and women are of equal importance; if one become extinct in due time the other will cease to exist.

It is time for changes. It is time for stronger laws put in place that will protect women globally.  The atrocities against woman must stop.  Women across the world must stand together and demand equal rights and justice.

Every man on earth is born of a woman and men ought to respect that.  A nation that fails to protect its women is a nation that in spite of all its achievements, has failed humanity.  It is like a pig wallowing in its own filth, no matter what it does at the end of the day it is a disgrace to the human race.

Why Women Cry

 A little boy asked his mother, “Why are you crying?” “Because I’m a woman,” she told him.
“I don’t understand,” he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, “And you never will.”

Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?”

“All women cry for no reason,” was all his dad could say.

The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.

Finally he put in a call to God. When God got on the phone, he asked, “God, why do women cry so easily?”

God said, “When I made the woman she had to be special.

I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world,

yet gentle enough to give comfort.

I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children.

I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up,

and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.

I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly.

I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.

I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife,

but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfaltering.

And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed.”

“You see my son,” said God, “the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,

the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart – the place where love resides.

Letting Go

She watches him leave and it pains her inside
that he has just told her yet another lie.
She fakes a smile, for deep inside she wants to cry,
She closes the door and wish it was just as easy,
to close her heart to the love for him,
which is tearing her apart.
He doesn’t know that she knows,
the apartment to which he goes.
She doesn’t need to follow him,
She has watched him enter many times before.

Tonight is the night she decides,
he is going to find out that she knows,
She wants to see the look upon his face
when he realizes that his cover is blown.
She takes her time, she is in no hurry,
She needs to calm her nerves and gather her strength
for what she is about to do.
She knocks on the door and when it opened,
stepped past the woman and walked right on inside.

The look on his face was priceless,
his jaws dropped open in shock.
The woman looks confused,
She smiles and gently explain,
‘That naked man in your bed,
is my husband my dear.
I just wanted to meet the woman,
he has thrown away his marriage for,
Now that I have met you,
what more can I say,
good luck my dear, he is all your.
She turns and leave but he is right behind her,
calling out her name.
Half way across the street he realizes
he is missing his pants.
She laughs all the way back to her car,
It really wasn’t that hard after all!
