I like strong willed women, but not in my home

A strong woman is always admired..loved and praised only when they are not yours. Most people especially men love independent women, but the moment it turns out to be their wives turn to be independent they are quite skeptical. Only a strong-willed man can be a perfect husband in the case of being around her when she wants to step out of her comfort zone and be independent.
The rest choose to give tons of excuses and enjoy only eulogizing other women.
A woman should always have the right to pursue what she wants to be in life. Sadly even in this era …i see men who are just downgrading them to be a household…they dont even respect how much they do for the home, and family.
Working or not working is her choice like you choose to smoke or not smoke ….never belittle her as she never disrespected your contributions to the home.
Sadly it’s not just men, it’s the women who raise them who should be put responsible because they are the ones who cut her wings and burn their talents to ashes.

Even though we are in a century where the human brain is marvellous…our mind is still in the well, not even trying to search for the light to enter, because we are afraid to break away from the norm.
..

Live and let live.

I wish I knew…

I wish i knew.
That its ok to be imperfect.
It’s okay to be angry.
It’s okay to fail.
It’s ok to fall ….but get up again.

I wish i knew, that there are no perfect moms.
I wish i knew, that i could fail as a mom..and learn again…
I wish i knew, that i can be vulnerable…
I wish i knew, i could dream.

I wish i knew i could be as messy as i am.
I wish i knew that it was ok to be single…
I wish i knew, i could be unsuccessful…
I wish i knew i could move on even with a heart block.
I wish i knew i could be depressed and not judged.
I wish i knew, i could cry openly.
I wish i knew that i could get angry.
I wish I knew, I could learn from mistakes…
I wish I knew, that I can be beautiful in my way…
I wish i knew it was ok to be fat.
I wish i knew it was ok to be who i am.

Let her reign

She is jovial,
Takes care of everything.
With no intention to hurt anyone.
With no intention to break the trust…
Working hard to be the mom she wanted…
Striving to be the wife her husband wanted her to be.
Convincing herself that she is alive amidst her responsibilities.
She is exhausted.
Living under the pressure of expectations.
She is like a time bomb ticking her way through ages…
She is becoming uncertain, about her needs, her dreams, her desires, and much more…
She might explode one day.
Every day is a struggle for her…
She struggles to binge through her existence.
To become what she ever wanted.
To be the saddle of her dreams.
But here she was crushed under the burden of responsibilities.
Which turned her into someone she barely knew…
Help her survive, even if you know she is stronger.
Hold her hand, and strive her through the existence…
Let her bloom,
With a dash of sunlight.
And a pinch of love and care.
And lots of consideration.

What Women’s Day truly mean to Me

Perfect morning and I am as usual into the daily chores. But again what was so special about the day? Nothing, but it was International Women’s Day, and it is all perfectly normal for me.
Like always, I posted something for Women’s day, and all wished me the same. I too wished the same to all.

A strong woman is someone who does not bother about gender equality but works of her caliber. She doesn’t beg or fight for her position, because she earns it on her way. She doesn’t need feminism or war, because she is beyond it.
Be it a mom, a little girl, or even a grandmother, homemaker, entrepreneur, or even a working lady…she has her own identity which is unbreakable.
Respect her, and she gives it back double.

Happy Women’s Day to all my dear ladies out there.

But then I realized, do we women actually feel the speciality of this day?

Do we feel that we are being especially accepted or just accepted at least?

Why do women I know, feels quite related to contents posted on inequality, gender gap, no financial independence, security and safety, emotional abuse and much more violence?

Are we truly celebrating the day with a whole heart or a hole in the heart?

Dont we all truly feel the pain of injustice happening to all the women in the world or maybe anything related to a human being?

I do not claim that all women are oppressed, but many are.

There are child rapes happening, rapes and abuse and much more, but never given justice.

Don’t you think that these injustices happening around need to be curbed for the good?

Why we celebrate this Women’s day

  • when most women around us are not even valued for their gender?
  • when there are numerous child rape cases happening and only the women are blamed for it?
  • When there is domestic abuse occurring, but again the women do silently suffer without hesitance?
  • When women themselves are blaming their own kind, how can even man support it?
  • When the gender gap is created by women itself.

how can justice prevail, when the women are not into it together. If I say I would blame the women in the society for downgrading themselves to the level of being treated like trash.

The mothers teach their daughters to silently suffer marital rape and be in a relationship, where they suffer a lot in the name of society. The mothers teach their daughters to do household chores and ask the boys to sit on the couch and enjoy snacking. When the women themselves are not confident enough to think better of themselves and blame the other independent women to be bitch who never take care of the family, she is bounded to, it is indeed a big war among the same breed.

But again, women need not have any ones approval to be what she wants. All she needs is to be accepted as who she is irrespective of all factors that categorize her as a woman. Let her be her….and he be him. Why mix coffee and tea as they both have their own flavours and taste.

Whole in whole, I feel like a complete woman in my own way. For me, being whole means I do not need an identity as a mom, or a daughter or a sister .. all I need is the identity of a whole woman, not a tag line that lingers around me.

And someday I shall achieve it, no matter what. But again, once i attain it, all the identity that lingered with me will shatter away, because, those roles I carried on till then need me in the way they want, not how I wanted myself to be.

Till then, Women’s day is yet another day in my life.

Yet!

To all Women who feel complete in their life

Happy Women’s Day !!

Do let me know in the comments, how you feel complete. I believe everyone has their own reasons. Even men can comment, what’s your idea of a complete woman.

Have a Great Day !!!

Self love ❤️❤️

Call me an advocate for self-love…
Yea…i always keep encouraging every other person around me to take some “me time”off.
It is indeed much needed when it comes to individuals.
In the past, due to my negligence i had sacrificed my me time and given it away for sake of others and in the end, it was just me who got blamed for.
So that’s when i decided to take some time off and spend doing something i just love to. It can be just reading, binge-watching some series like friends(maybe again n again), or a stress free time on my balcony gazing at the sky, or just cycle around with my friend.
These never harm anyone, but inturn benefits us in a great way. We all are always in a hustle amidst the bustle of life, wherein we see each and everyone around us, but what about us…just look at yourself.
Enjoy your good health, enjoy your book or even a bite of a meal or even a movie.
All those things you missed to glance at.
Hop around and dance away until your heart feels like flying.
Me time is essential, for keeping yourself happy and the people around you happy.
I keep suggesting this because i know i was broken once and then it took me loads of time to gather every broken piece of me to be who i am now.
Learn to love yourself again.
Self-love is a call to yourself.
