Another year is ending and the goals, checklists, bucketlists are endless. The New Years resolutions are flooding your mind some realistic and others not so realistic. The not so realistic ones can be realistic with enough discipline because nothing is impossible but many just don't put in the work. There will always be something that can possibly stop us but that's not an excuse. Ladies we must stop putting the excuses and let's get to work!
As the holiday season approaches and then Valentine's Day in February the pressure is on! Questions like when are you going to get married? Or when will you have a child? Or when will you have another one? Seeing family and friends during the holidays is great, you get to catch up and reminisce on old times but there are some topics that shouldn't be spoken about during the holidays! Whether you're single or in a relationship the pressures of society/family just pile up as you get older. So it's ok to brush those typical questions off.
Have you ever been the outsider looking into a relationship that may be off? It could be a friend or someone you don't even know and all you say to yourself is "damn girl you could do better." This isn't about physical attraction but when a woman doesn't see her worth because she is so blindsided by "love." Let's face it many of us have been in that position of settling knowing we are stooping low. It's one of those situations where everyone else can see it except for you. If you do see it you think you can "upgrade" him or accept him for who he is. But at what point do we balance our self worth and being a ride or die?!
How dare a woman speak up for herself?! How dare she speak up on sexual harassment in the workplace? Women have been silenced for centuries. Silenced in their home for years, then they have the ability to go to the workforce and then silenced there as well. How is it still possible that a woman can't defend herself in the workplace by someone who has sexually harassed her? There are lengthy sexual harassment policies yet there are still million dollar sexual harassment lawsuits. But these settlements are supposed to make it all go away and make the victim SHUT UP!!
