Don’t Blame Me

So you were raised and taught to treat women like crap?
Too bad!

Along the way you picked up this habit of harassing women and expecting them to submit to your whims, wishes and will.
HA! What a shame!

How pathetic that you choose to act so rude, to follow a path of anger and disrespect towards half the world. You say “It’s not my fault! I only had male role models that acted the same way”.

Turn on the TV and you would see men treating women with respect, kindness and compassion. You could read a book about men that fought for women’s rights.

You CHOOSE to be awful. Don’t give me any more excuses, You are an adult now, you can see what is right and wrong. You can choose to act with repsect.

Don’t talk to me like that! Don’t call me a slut. I am not your baby your whore, a cunt. I have no interest in you so leave me alone. I owe you nothing. I am not the weak one, you are. Be a man, treat women with respect. Make a decision. It has always been your choice.


Empowering Discussions

Respect and Confidence Go Hand in Hand

I originally wrote this for my empowerment website. You can see that here:

Respect for yourself is necessary for a fulfilling life. Self respect cannot be bought or forced, but it is within your grasp. What exactly does it mean when people say “Believe in yourself”? Obviously you are a real living person and you don’t need to believe that you exist. What we should say is Believe in your ability to accomplish your goals. Trust your instincts, listen to that voice in your head that says maybe what I want IS possible. It may be far out of reach at this moment, but it won’t always be so far from actually happening. Confidence is not much different than self respect. You basically need one to have the other. If you are confident in your abilities than you will respect yourself. On the other hand if you don’t have any faith in your abilities than you probably feel more loser than superstar.

This shouldn’t be news to you, but doing something amazing takes skills, hard work and patience. Miracles, angels, luck, karma, coincidence; they all happen occasionally to help us achieve our goals, but we cannot rely only that to get us where we want to go. Ask any successful person about their life and they will tell you of struggles, failures, days, weeks, months or years when everything went wrong. Still they persevered, believed in their ability to accomplish what they wanted and did not listen to the voice in their head that says they could not do it.

Accomplishing a goal that is important to you will give you a great dose of self respect. When you respect yourself it is easier to respect others, because you can see the greatness we all possess and know first hand that what you once thought of as lofty dreams can become your reality.

There is probably a greet deal that you have already accomplished. If you can speak, read, walk and feed yourself than you have achieved what we call basic skills. However there is nothing basic about these skills. You did not learn to walk in a day, you crawled around for about a year and learned from trying until you could stand up and put one foot in front of the other. Apply this same principle to all of your goals and respect the process you must go though before you can achieve anything.
