Today is #internationaldayofagirlchild and there is a huge emphasis on educating the girl child. Can I ask what this even means for you??? In your view is education about just books and studying, or more than that?? About life skills, body image, respecting yourself, not letting anyone tell you how to be and so much more. I love my little baby girl who is treasured by her big brother, and the love and respect he has for her is beautiful. But she is #fierce and does not put up with any rubbish from anyone. I have learnt so much from her, in the past few years, the combination of empathy for others which makes her stand up for them and herself. In the past years I have met highly educated women, doctors solicitors businesswomen all married or not being abused by their families. “What they are being beaten up??” you ask, no they are not!!!! Abuse is not just physical it’s verbal, it’s control, it’s being asked to constantly perform as per others wishes by killing ur own beliefs and needs. It ls when you are constantly told what to do, you are asking permission to live ur life. It’s when you are told how you are useless, worthless no good. It’s where you start believing everyone and think yes as a girl I must compromise, tolerate otherwise I am a bad example to my kids a disappointment to my family. All #abuse#abusedwomen , I want to educate my #girlchild that she is enough the way she is, no more no less she is perfect, and that she should not let any man or human being tell her otherwise. But I also want to educate my son to #respect every girl like he respects his #sister. Not a single person would be on this planet without their mother. Good or bad if a #woman didn’t push you, would not be out here in this world. Know where you came from and respect that #likeforlikes#goegeous#insta#instalike#motivation#strongwomen#strongwoman#follow#followme#like4like#allmysisters#globalgirlsalliance

I love myself enough today to know that not everything that goes wrong is my responsibility. When people don’t like my words, actions thoughts and frankness it’s their problem not mine. I have also learnt when people tell you how you are wrong, not good enough useless or plain putting you down, they are really just scared of your potential and know what you are capable of and hence need to do this, it’s their insecurity, so I don’t need to engage with this.
It’s important that you quieten the negative chatter around you and only then you will have a moment of clarity, I can not control anything in life except for myself, my thoughts and my actions. So no matter how mean someone is with you just walk away, as you will be doing yourself a favour. Though do not put up with any crap, know your boundaries and let others know them as well, have you even seen some one mess with a bitch, nope as she has her boundaries and people know if you cross then she will bite back. I love my kids but I don’t need to be there for every sports day, school event, or other such things, but I need to catch them if they fall, teach them love and respect for themselves first. Even now I know when some people read this post they will judge, say I am crazy or venting out. But do I care what you think NOPE. I am writing this as it World Mental Health day, and I want every single person suffering from stress anxiety and depression, to know u are not alone and the strength is within you. So keep fighting but for yourself not other peoples validation and love, just yours cause that’s the only one that matters #likeforlikes#goegeous#insta#mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealth#love#loveyourself#mindovermatter#pure#follow#followforfollowback
