Brace yourself. Going to be a bumpy ride.
I may not be qualified to tell you, but if you haven’t noticed already that life isn’t fair for women, than something is very strange here. Life Isn’t fair and don’t expect it. But for a woman, it’s even less so. Starting from how people judge you superficially, through wage disparity and harassment, and ending with that thing living in the white house.
I wish there was a magic word people could say, and after that, things would at least be evened out. But there is no such magic.
It’s hard, uphill work, to get what you need. But you are up to it. You have millions of years of tenacious survivalism to prove, that it can be done. In the jungle things were not fair either. So know that you have it in you, like all women, to persevere, better than men perhaps, despite the hardships.
Now for the fun part: life is not a jungle (completely)anymore. You have access to things that women could only dream of. Women do not fall short of men in almost anything at all, and they surpass them in quite a few. Be confident in yourself. Identify assets within you, that can bring you joy and success. Aquire skills and resources, to build your empire, and know that glass ceilings can be broken, even if it just sounds like an empty cliche.
For more advice, please refer to my advice for men. It definitely applies to you to.
Never let love decide your life for you. You are your own being when you are without love. Partners are an extension, not the outlet you need to pwer on. You power yourself, so stay energized on your own. Don't unplug yourself and decline opputunities for another person.
Don’t do it.
Do not go back to him.
I don’t care if this is the first time it has happened.
It will happen again.
Whehter he hurts you with words or his hands..
You are right.
He may change.
But you can not stick around long enough to see if he does.
You are worth more.
More than rubies.
He will try to appologize and get you to stay.
If you wish.
But do not go back to him.
You must look foward.

The World Doesn’t Take
Listen close to the scholars for most of them lied;
There are still things the wealthy and fortunate seek.
We’ve all heard the dictum, they say you’re a victim;
You’ve jumped into boxes and labelled them hell.
One day it won’t matter who’s beast or who’s belle;
You may think you’ve predicted where bad apples fell
But you didn’t predict’m; you planted and picked’m,
And now it’s on you to ensure that they sell.
From your virtues disgraced you can run but can’t hide,
So just act like an angel and feel like a freak.
The world doesn’t take; No earthling has tried
To strip you of knowledge or turn your soul weak.
You’ve crumpled, you’ve cried, and you’ve learnt from your pride.
Now buck up. You’re a lady; Be mighty and meek.
Know Your True Value
You are not your body
not your lips, breast size or eyebrow shape.
All of these will soon be gone
if it is all you have invested in
you will live your next 50 years in abject poverty and regret.
If someone falls for you because you are hot
that love wil go cold fast.
Stop dressing for other women
thinking you are doing it
to attract men who will love you.
All of this is untrue.
What lasts in life
can never be seen
Invest in those things invisible.
Avoid those who value the superficial seen
and whose presence detracts from your being.
Share yourself only with people who can feel, listen and add to your soul.
Advice for a young woman
So naive of you to think that you are the only one manipulating people. Shield your heart and put on a brave face, even if your hands are shaking and you’re not sure what you believe in.
You can refuse
Long hair has split ends and doesn't dry well. Someone tells you not to cut it.
Waxing hurts, so you prefer to shave. Someone insists you stop.
You are not satisfied with your job, you want to try something new. Someone says you shouldn't quit.
The person you swore to love doesn't love you anymore. Someone says you shouldn't leave.
You are good at something, but it doesn't pay the bills. Someone asked me to stop writing.
You can shake your head, you can say no.
It's okay to do so. I promise you the world does not end.
Hey, I'm still writing, aren't I? ;-)
