Happy International Women's Day

Yes, it's 8th of March once again and it's our day! But before I wish you a Happy International Women's Day, I'd like to ask you to ask yourself.. how many times have you wished for a woman to have a stone thrown at her for how much she has pissed you off? Or how many times have you accused a lady of something you have no clue about? Or join in a gossip not to help but only because it gives you the high to know how badly one is behaving or how rotten their life is turning out to be?

How much do you actually do to make the wrongs in another woman's life, right?

I may sound like Ebenezer Scrooge right now as he nagged over Christmas, but before we go wishing everyone with ovaries, can we ask ourselves this?

Just to set the record straight, I'm not a saint with my opinions on other women myself. I do let my annoyance and anger get the better of me, sometimes to the greatest extent of calling one bitch! Because that's the thing right, we think we can just call people whatever we want because we are raged over something they've done to us. Maybe yes sometimes some ladies deserve no respect from us - they've hurt us, spread rumours about us, stab us in the back, rob us of our happiness, etc etc etc. But strangely you know what, our bad reactions can sometimes be worse than what they've done to us.

Where do we draw the line?

If you believe in the energy of goodness, you'd say Karma will teach them one day. But the hurt remains and it takes a very courageous woman to put that pain aside and move on with her head held high.

I've been through a lot this week (not to mention the last 41 years as well) but I know the fact that my pain is nothing compared to the pain many others go through and are still standing strong. To those who are hurting me and stabbing me behind my back, all I can say is have a good time doing it. I hope you eventually find the courage to do it at my face so I can give you a round of applause for being the person you are! As for me, I have more important things to do with my life! And this to me is a growth, from being the person who used to rage over the ill manners some women can have to be one who wishes them well regardless of the crap they do. This is why I want to celebrate women's day! That to me sounds appropriate to the theme UN has adopted for IWD 2018 - Press For Progress. It's my personal progress - to be strong and not cave in the crap.

I have a mission to accomplish as a mother and a person of my own. I have an obligation towards the people who are associated with me - my friends, my colleagues and my loved ones, even to my country, and if I can't make them happy, at least I don't want to be the person that makes them miserable.

P.S. But don't get this wrong, if you've hurt me too many times, I'll still forgive you but please don't expect any more associations between us. I don't like to be reminded of the crap put on me.
