Woman’s day is in the true sense every day of the year. No house is complete without a woman. We birth and nourish families. We are the center of every household and in todays time we even run businesses. We are the ones who with our love and care make a house into a home.
My younger self would have been angry at the fact that a day is dedicated to Women and that is that. But my mature self feels it is a great beginning, and a beautiful acknowledgement. After all there is only a day for Woman and none for Men.
And really why not. There is so much that we go through. There is so much we do. We love fiercely and passionately. We fight our inner battles every day and yet we keep a smile steady on our face. No matter how we may be feeling on the inside we always love our children. We do the best for them and yet we feel miserable for not doing enough.
“I would like it if men had to partake in the same hormonal cycles to which we’re subjected monthly. Maybe that’s why men declare war — because they have a need to bleed on a regular basis.”Brett Butler
It isn’t easy being a woman. The hormones that take us on a roller coaster ride every month. Tears that roll down our eyes and we do not even understand why. The guilt of not doing enough for the ones we love and the regrets of not having been able to make a career for us. I mean it is so much to take for one person.
The amount of past that we carry… the memories, the nostalgia, the sadness…. all of it.
Do not try to understand a woman, just love her.I am not sure where I read this quote. But it is so true.
We women are complex. And we cannot deny it. And we are strikingly different from men. I often tell people to read the book Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. (It is the perfect book to know the other gender. )
We need love but we don’t know how to ask for it. We need sex (just as much as men) but most of us will never say it. But none of that would stop us from giving. It would not stop us from being the perfect mother, the loving wife, an obedient daughter, a sincere employee and what not.
There are a thousand wishes burried in our womb. A million desires. So much we want to accomplish. Even when we do so much there is so much more that we want to do.
We want to cook the perfect meals
Have the perfect bodies
Be the best homekeepers
And balance our work and office so nobody is disturbed.
If you are a woman reading this, I want you to know this Woman’s day and every other day of the year, that your are perfect. You do not need something or someone to make you whole. You are good as you are and you are always enough. You must be compassionate to yourself the way you are to everyone you love. You must love yourself as much as you can. Stop expecting. Stop hoping. Take all that comes your way and yet not depend on that.
Pat your back for all that you do.
Look at the beauty you create.
Be proud of who you are. Have goals, but do not belittle yourself for not having accomplished enough.
Embrace your feminity…. it is truly divine!
And if you are a man reading this….. do not try hard to understand your woman. Just be there for her. Just love her….. as much as you can…. if possible as fiercely as she does. Make every day seem like Woman’s day – her day. You complete here and all she really needs is your unconditional love and support.
