Throughout history women have had to fight and claw their way to get recognition in a male dominated world. This is not because women are not good enough, not educated, talented, or as hardworking as her male counterpart. However the stereotype that governs society dictates that she is the weaker sex and she is treated accordingly.

     This is of course nothing short of a joke, if we allow our conscious minds to meander down the path of the life of a woman. Can you imagine men dealing with monthly period, the discomfort, pain and mood swings that go along with it? Can you picture a man pregnant and walking around with another human life growing inside of him for nine months, experiencing the throes of labor and giving birth? Some men are so squeamish they would drop like a fly at the sight of blood. So let us be clear women are important and play a vital role in society not only as mother and a wife but as unique human beings.

Today let us celebrate the women of the world. Happy International Women’s Day!

Should You give up Your Independence

Times have changed. As women we have evolved. Gone are the days when women were expected to stay home, be good wives and bear children. Women are now go-getters forging the way and making strides in almost every area of society.

However we still have women who believe it is a man’s job to take care of them and make them happy. This is not a good idea. A relationship should never be about one person’s total dependence on another but rather about two people working together to create something great.

Dependence is one of the key factors that many women become trapped in unhappy and abusive relationships. Even if they have the will to leave, inability to finance themselves keep them trapped. Whether it is a marriage or a relationship maintain your independence. It will be one of the best decisions you have ever made

Women and Society

Society has one of the greatest influence on people and so many feel they need to do just about anything to fit in. Social media perhaps has the greatest impact on how women view themselves amd the image they project. Nowadays many women equate nakedness to sexiness. If you have to expose your body in order to feel attractive it says a lot about how you view yourself as an individual and more importantly as a woman. You are more than an object, you are so much more than just a sex symbol. Treat yourself like royalty.

Empowerment

The Empowered Woman

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 go through each day have a strong belief in self and your ability to be successful.

Women’s Rights

There is a debate going on about abortion and many have mixed views about it. I do believe that each child that is conceived should be given the chance to experience life. However in certain circumstances such as rape and incest I believe women should have the right to choose what to do. We don’t know the mental and emotional well being of women caught up in these situations. Therefore no one should have the right to make that decision for them. What are your thoughts on this issue?

View’s About Women

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.

Empower Girls and Women

One of the most important step in empowering women is educating girls. It is imperative that they are given the chance to receive a good education. In some countries across the world millions of girls are denied the chance of getting an education. Many are forced into child labor and child marriages where they endure a life of servitude. This impact negatively on the quality of life for the girls involved.

Girls who are denied an education become women who are ill-equipped for the job market. They are denied the chance of equal opportunity in the workplace and are more likely to live a life of poverty.

Empowerment

It may be surprising to know that jealousy and the lack of self-confidence are the two main factors that drive a wedge between women. Women can get along. We can build each other up if we rid our minds of jealousy and have confidence in our own abilities. With confidences we can soar to new heights. A confident woman takes joy in seeing her sisters rise.

Is True Love Always Forever

Do you believe that if you truly love someone it means that you will love them no matter what? Now I know people have mixed views about what true love entails however one must be quick to understand that a healthy relationship involves two people having mutual love and respect for one another.  It should never be a one-sided thing so don’t fall for that trap where a partner hurts you and then tell you that if you truly love  you would forgive him.  How about him loving you enough not to hurt you in the first place?

The belief that true love last forever and it is worth fighting for is one of the reason why women remain in abusive relationship hoping that the more love they show the abusive partner, the more likely it is that he will change. This is a belief that often leads to disappointment for no amount of love that you show him will make him change. He has to feel that deep love inside for you and respect you enough not to hurt you. They change that you seek can only come from him. You can’t make him change and you should never settle for abuse. It is okay not to love your abuser. It is okay to walk away.
