I’ve always had a passion for people. I ended up getting one of my degrees in Sociology because I loved people so much. It’s always fascinating to me to learn about someone’s life, everyone has a different story, and a basis for why they are the way they are.
I see most people a different way then most…which is crazy for me to say especially since I worked customer service for 6 years. I have helped the rudest of customers, had people call me names, throw food at me, and do anything short of spit in my face. I can’t help but think…what made that person lash out the way they do? Family life? Work life? The way they grew up?
I’m not here to talk about people in general, but more specifically women.
It’s no small secret women are complex creatures. I confess, 80 percent of the time I have no clue what I do and why I do it. Emotions run rampant, and I feel so sorry for the male race. Well, not that sorry, especially since they don’t have to physically deal with what women do…
periods, childbirth, menopause if you know what I mean. ;)
I’d have to say my husband does a pretty darn good job dealing with me and all my issues. As most women do, I sometimes have breakdowns over the craziest of things. He is patient with me and will even offer to go buy chocolate when I’m having a ‘moment.’
One of the biggest issues for almost all women is the issue of insecurity. Am I successful? Will I be a good girlfriend/lover/wife/mother? Am I good at my job? Am I popular? Do I make enough friends or am I even social? And then there’s the big one : am I beautiful?
I recently came across the new Dove ‘Real Beauty’ Campaign video, and I couldn’t help but watch it with tear filled eyes…knowing I feel exactly the same way that the women do in the video.
This video is perspective changing. Please watch it; please share it!
