Let’s think about how what we say as women affects men.

I never want my 3 year old nephew to feel demonized or trapped by what women in this world say, simply because we know no better way to communicate our feelings.  Let’s prevent this from happening by being strong people, without ostracizing either gender. 
“Also, let’s think about what this statement tells boys. If our sons overhear us saying this, what are they learning about themselves as men? We don’t want to undermine the roles that boys and men play in our lives. If we want to raise a generation of empowered women and compassionate men, we must begin to change our what we say. It’s not about needing anyone, it’s about being true to yourself, practicing self-care and maintaining your individuality, even when you’re in a relationship. Let’s not dismiss boys and men as an inconvenience in our lives.”

    Oh my goodness, I’d never dismiss boys or men as an inconvenience! But I do believe that change needs to be brought about in how people treat each other beginning in the home. More often than not, it is the mother who formulates the core values of the child, so it is up to the women of the world to start this change. In order for that to happen, we need to stop fighting among ourselves long enough to realize we’ve become our own jailers.
