20 Apr Empowering yourself
Women empowerment is a much-debated topic worldwide today. Women have fought a long and hard battle for equal rights, right to education and right to employment. Even though gender discrimination has not yet been fully addressed, we have come a long way from being mere caregivers. A woman’s life is no longer confined to the kitchen but if she so chooses she can rule the boardroom as well.
Mothers are our primary caregivers and are often underestimated and undervalued. But once she learns to stand up for herself no one can make her feel less than any man worth his salt. The only limits we have are the ones we build up in our minds. Life will go in the direction we want it to go. Our own thoughts are the ship we must learn to navigate.
To empower yourself first believe in your worth. Your gender is not your weakness and must not define what you are capable of. There are Women in the army much more formidable than their male counterparts. There are women CEO’s that have propelled their companies to greatness. We are living in liberated times and it is imperative that we change our own beliefs to overcome discrimination.
If you can bleed every month, carry another life in your womb for nine months and give birth you can surely educate yourself and work for an independent life. How difficult it must be when men can do it, you can do it better.
